First Turboden CHP ORC unit in Romania
Sortilemn, the Romaniana Wood industry and one of the main supplier of Ikea, chooses Turboden to generate heat and power from biomass. The Turboden ORC unit that will be installed by Sortilemn in Gherla, closed to Cluj-Napoca, will generate 1.4MWe and about 5.3MWth.
Heat will be used for wood process treatment and electricity will be delivered to the grid.
Heat consumers inside Sortilemn factory are veener dryer, wood presses, tunnel for boiling logs, timber dryer (drying kilns). Start-up is expected in the 2nd quarter 2012.
First ORC in Denmark
First ORC for biomass application in Denmark for the municipality Marstal Fjernvarme, that is pioneer in the field of renewable thanks to the biggest solar plant in Europe that produce heat for a district heating system of about 1460 users.
The ORC unit will be integrated to the existing solar plant to provide heat (3,2MWth) and power (700kWel).
Marstal District Heating has, through the EU's 7th program, received pledges of support for a project called SUNSTORE 4 and is along with 10 other European projects selected to be a part of the so called EU flag projects.
Besides the fact that Marstal District Heating has received grants for expansion of the current solar installations, the EU has also given grants to disseminate the knowledge, gained through the SUNSTORE 4 project into Europe. The aim of the project is to demonstrate a large scale innovative, cost-effective and technically 100 % sustainable renewable energy system.EURO THERM A/S and Turboden are collaborating in delivering a total biomass CHP solution, each one providing respectively all the heating and cogeneration part, for Marstal Fjernvarme project. The expected start up of the plant is in the 1st quarter.
Dall Energy is the official Turboden representative for biomass applications in Denmark (www.dallenergy.com).
Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign
Turbodens project H-REII - Heat Recovery in Energy Intensive Industries (www.hreii.eu), has been endorsed by the European Commission's Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign as an Official Partner.
First heat recovery from glass industry by means of Turboden ORC module with high electrical efficiency
Turboden signed the first contract for the supply of ORC module with a high electrical efficiency of 1.3 MW, which will recover the waste heat of a large glass company located in Italy.
The contract signed with GEA Bischoff, the world leader in the field of gas treatment process for all industrial sectors and general contractor of the project, includes a Turboden ORC module for heat recovery from the flat glass production process by glass company AGC in Cuneo - one of world leader in glass production.
