Centrale del Latte di Brescia established in 1930 with the objective of ensuring hygiene checks on milk and daily distribution to all citizens. Centrale del Latte di Brescia was the first municipal dairy in Italy to have a UHT plant for production of long-life milk. The company was the first in the world to pack UHT milk in fully recyclable PET bottles.
Centrale del Latte di Brescia used to produce steam by means of a traditional boiler buying electric power from the local grid. The customer decided to look at a cogeneration solution to increase the overall efficiency of the system and reduce related costs.
Turboden provides a turnkey solution, supplying the complete system, from the natural gas-fired boiler to the high-temperature ORC turbogenerator. The Turboden solution perfectly fits the energy needs of Centrale del Latte di Brescia, which uses an ST&P ORC System to co-generate about 700 kW electric power and 5 ton/hour of steam at 15 bar(g) needed to pasteurize long-life milk.
