Climate protection starts right on your doorstep

esmo trainees' trip 2022

Together with their training supervisors Georg Fischbacher and Florian Zosseder, our esmo apprentices of the professions

  • industrial mechanic, 
  • mechatronics technician, 
  • technical product designer and 
  • IT specialist 

set out on September 15, 2022 for this year's trainee trip. 

Under the motto "climate protection starts right at your doorstep" the trip went – almost CO2-neutral - by bike to the first (technical) stop of the day: the waste-to-energy plant of the Rosenheim municipal utility. During a guided tour trainees and supervisors were given many exciting insights into the work of a modern waste incineration plant. In this plant, around 65,000 tons of residual waste per year are used in the best possible way to generate electricity and heat. The esmo plant in Rosenheim is also supplied with electricity and hot water from this waste incineration plant. 

Afterwards, the group cycled again – along the Mangfall to the Oberwöhr hydroelectric power plant. There the focus was again on efficiency and environmental compatibility: the power plant is able generate up to 1,200 kWh of electricity for approx. 2,000 Rosenheim households through the power of water only.

At lunchtime, the trainees were treated to pizza and pasta at Guiseppe e'amici in Kolbermoor. The trainees desperately needed it, because the last topic on the agenda demanded everything from our junior staff. They went archery shooting at the SV Pang archery range.

There, after a short introduction, all participants were allowed to shoot with bow and arrow for the very first time – which, especially at the beginning, was sometimes more, sometimes less successful. From 5 meters at the beginning, however, all knew the ropes quickly and could gradually increase to distances of up to 20 meters. This worked so well that soon bets were made with stakes of the "Bavarian cultural kind" (Leberkas roll).


In the late afternoon, the training team cycled back to the esmo headquarters in Rosenheim. All in all 19 km were covered by bike on this day.

A short summary of the day: 
Home is the nicest place to be, if everyone takes a little care of it. 

Our special thanks go to:

  • the Stadtwerke Rosenheim for the great and informative guided tours
  • as well as the archers of the SV Pang.
