Turboden ORC plant with lease agreement*
Cereal Docks is an Italian industrial group, with 6 production facilities and 2 storage centers, operating in the feeds and foods primary processing sector, producing ingredients including meals, oils and lecithin, derived from oil seeds (soy, sunflower and rapeseed) and grains intended for applications in the foods, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, animal feeds, technical and energy.
The company’s general headquarters is located in Camisano Vicentino (Vicenza), where Mauro and Paolo Fanin founded the company 36 years ago, a shining example of a successful family business.
Cereal Docks, a company with a big expertize in cogeneration solutions, decided to install Turboden technology in the factory of Camisano Vicentino in order to maximize the energy efficiency of the site.
The process of the production site of Camisano is in fact characterized by a strong consumption of steam.
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 Cereal Docks, which uses a CHP ORC System to co-generate about 1,350 kW electric power and 10.5 ton/hour of steam at 12 bar(g) needed for the extraction and refining of oil from seeds.
*The formula of the lease agreement, granted to this project, is an optimal contractual solution taking into account the specific needs of this customer that has purchased one of the latest technological solutions offered by Turboden. The customer avoids the direct purchase of the plant, the ORC power plant is given as a concession in exchange for a monthly rent with a long-term contract. Hence, Turboden not only supplies the plant but is also committed to producing clean energy in a shared and involved perspective with the customer core-activity, as well as supporting the sustainability.
