Ricciarelli Spa, founded in 1843 by Garibaldo Ricciarelli is specialized in manufacturing dies for pasta production and machines required for the automation of the end-of-line of the packaging plants in the sector of pasta and food, with palletizing systems and handling.
The client requirement is a higher production of electrical power for its manufacturing process. The plant is inserted in the Tecnoparco of Valbasento, a power station that sells the electrical power to the grid.
Turboden supplies an ORC turbogenerator (oil circuit) that recovers energy from an internal combustion engine that burns palm oil.
