Plant:

1 x ZE-50-ULH Low-Temperature Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) Module, nominal output 50 kWe

Nominal output:

50 kWe

Application:

Heat recovery from processes (pyrolitic gasification) and engines (syngas-fueled genset)

Location:

Province of Bolzano/Bozen, South Tyrol, Italy

Manager:

Private Italian firm

The client who commissioned this plant is an ad-hoc enterprise located in a suburb of Merano/Meran, a large town in the province of Bolzano/Bozen, not far from the northern border of Italy. The plant was created for the purpose of producing electric power as a technological demonstrator for the efficient combination of Burkhardt gasifiers with ORC systems.

 

The client who commissioned this plant is an ad-hoc enterprise located in a suburb of Merano/Meran, a large town in the province of Bolzano/Bozen, not far from the northern border of Italy. The plant was created for the purpose of producing electric power as a technological demonstrator for the efficient combination of Burkhardt gasifiers with ORC systems.

The plant served by the supplied ORC system is composed of two Burkhardt wood pellet gasifiers producing combustible gas fuel (syngas) feeding two MAN gensets with an overall power output of 360kWe.

The standard ZE-50-ULH ORC module installed in this plant recovers waste heat from both the pyrolitic process (which would otherwise be lost in the output gases) and from the cooling jackets and flue gases of the MAN gensets, and converts it into electricity.
