The customer need was the economic valorization of the energetic resource when the costs for the electric power where very high. Thanks to the integration of the ORC system in the production process, the customer satisfied its energetic requirements.
Turboden supplied a 450 kWe ORC system to produce electric power and heat for the wooden flooring production process and for the district heating. STIA Holzindustrie GmbH was the pioneer in Austria utilizing this technology. Thanks to the good results, in 2006 the customer has chosen to install a second ORC system of 800 kWe for its plant.
