TURBODEN BIOMASS SOLUTION

Turboden biomass solution for cogeneration

*As alternatives to more traditional combustion systems, gasification and pyrolysis solutions could be applied.

HEAT TRANSFER FLUID: heat from biomass combustion is transferred to the ORC working fluid by means of an intermediate circuit. This media is typically thermal oil, but can also be saturated steam, pressurized water or directly the ORC working fluid. 

  • Electrical efficiency for CHP / CCHP models up to 22%
  • Electrical efficiency for power only models up to 30%

OUR CONSOLIDATED EXPERTISE IN BIOMASS APPLICATION

In the 2000s, the industrial growth of Turboden was fueled by its penetration into the untapped market segment of medium-small wood-based CHP power plants employed in the wood processing industry and in small district heating networks. In these segments Turboden’s ORC technology offered the advantages of a completely automatic system, with very low O&M and competences to run it: such CHP systems can be employable also by small sawmills and district heating networks that cannot afford to hire new people to run the CHP plants. Today the characteristic Turboden ORC advantages remain so, with the added values of improved electrical efficiency (up to 30 %), well-established after sales capability looking after 300+ operating plants fleet, and effective network of technological and financial partners to cover all project needs.
