ALMACIS originated from Marramiero Company that, since the 50s, has started the establishment of water networks and distribution systems, irrigation and sanitation, in addition to the traditional activities in the field of civil and industrial construction in Abruzzo and in Center and Southern Italy. In the 70s the company successfully enters the field of methane networks and systems, acquiring the management of more than 40 concessions.
Alma CIS/Fater needs more electrical energy for its manufacturing process. Thanks to Turboden ORC unit it is possible to recover the energy coming from the internal combustion engine already installed in the factory.
The direct exchange solution chosen for this project provides various advantages: a compact layout compared to the traditional system with the heat transfer loop. Avoiding the heat carrier circuit the customer has a lower investment for the whole plant, lower O&M costs and a higher electric output.
