ORI Martin is a leading European supplier of engineering steel (SBQ) for the automotive industry and in general for mechanical applications which base its productions on Electric Steelmaking, Rolling and Finishing, with facilities main located in Brescia, Italy.
Exhaust gases coming from the steel production process are recovered in order to avoid dangerous emissions in the atmosphere and to exploit them for producing electrical energy and thermal power.
The system is designed to recover heat from an electric arc furnace (EAF) for steel production and produce 11 MW thermal power during winter and 2.2 MW electrical power during summer. This is achieved by introducing a heat recovery installation that produces steam by recovering residual heat from flue gas. The steam is the vector fluid that is delivered to the district for heating and to the ORC for electric energy according to the yearly necessity.
The system will provide heat to 2000 families in the winter and in the summer will produce clean electricity able to satisfy the needs of 700 families. The system guarantees a reduction of 10,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
