Teatro Marcello

Manager:  Teatro Marcello Energy Srl • Location: EUR Quarter/Magliana area, Rome (Lazio, Italy)
Plant: 1 x ZE-50-ULH Low-Temperature Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) Module, nominal output 40 kWe
Application: Heat recovery from processes (pyrolitic gasification) and engines (syngas-fueled genset)


Mappa Teatro Marcello The client who commissioned this plant - Teatro Marcello Energy srl - is also the manager of the whole Parco De'Medici Space Cinema multiplex and the related mall below which the plant is hosted. The complex is located in the EUR quarter / Magliana area, in southwestern Rome, along the Roma-Fiumicino highway.

The plant to which the Zuccato Energia ORC module is connected is composed of two Burkhardt gasifiers pyrolyzing wood pellet to produce the combustible gas fuel (syngas) used to fuel two custom-modified MAN gensets having an overall power output of 360kWE.

The ZE-50-ULH Low Temperature Organic Rankine Cycle (LT-ORC) module supplied by Zuccato Energia runs on waste heat recovered from both the flue gases of the Burkhardt gasifiers and from the cooling jackets and flue gases of the gensets the gasifiers supply syngas to.
The ORC module supplied by Zuccato Energia - a standard ZE-50-ULH Low Temperature Organic Rankine Cycle module - adds a further 45 kWE to the 360 kWE produced by the gasifier/engine plant, thus raising total power output to 405 kWE and increasing performance by about 9% with respect to the "naked" system. The skid-mounted system Zuccato Energia supplied is a standard model, and due to its compactness and quiet operation, it was possible to install it into a technical underground space located under the cinema, while gasifiers, engines, generators and cooling tower are installed above ground outdoors
The wood processed by the gasifiers is locally-produced wood pellet. As is the case for all biomass fuels, it is CO-2 neutral, as the carbon dioxide released during gasification and combustion is the same which was captured during the growth of the trees the pellet comes from.
