The Biggest in Taiwan: 10 MWe Heat Recovery ORC Power Plant from Biomass Fuel.

Turboden secures yet another contract in Asia: after Malaysia, India, South Korea, The Philippines, Singapore and Japan, also Taiwan welcomes Turboden ORC heat recovery plant.

The new ORC plant, the biggest of its kind in Taiwan, will recover saturated steam at low pressure from biomass fuel to produce 10 MW electricity.

Turboden team has closely worked with the final customer to understand the specific requirements to engineer the most performing ORC unit and to ensure a good economic feasibility for the entire project, in full respect of the local regulations.

The high conversion efficiency of the ORC (very suitable for low temperature sources), the reliability and the experience of the Company, have made Turboden turbogenerator the only choice to ensure a secure income from the sale of electric energy throughout the power plant life.

“Turboden is aggressively approaching the Asian countries with very good results. Customers are attracted by the quality of our product and the wide competence of the Company to provide a solution for any type of process and heat source, together with the strength of a solid after sale assistance” states Paolo Bertuzzi, Turboden CEO.

As well as in the rest of the world, Turboden customers in Asia can count on a timely response to request of plant intervention, thanks to a well-organized and experienced overseas staff.

Other Companies in Taiwan are approaching Turboden for different applications (glass industry, geothermal …) and many others in Asia are committed to lower their carbon footprint by installing an ORC turbogenerator.

The major players in glass, cement, steel industry and other (AGC, Saint-Gobain, Posco, Aichi, Holcim, Mitsubishi …) have already chosen Turboden, sometimes with multiple orders, to increase their competitiveness through energy efficiency, thus confirming the outstanding competence and leadership of Turboden.

Turboden ,  a  Mitsubishi  Heavy  Industries  company,  is  an  Italian  firm  and  a  global  leader  in  the  design, manufacture  and  maintenance  of  Organic  Rankine  Cycle  (ORC)  systems  up  to  20  MWe,  highly  suitable  for distributed  power  generation.  ORC  systems  can  generate  electric  and  thermal  power  exploiting  multiple sources,  such  as  renewables  (biomass,  geothermal  energy,  solar  energy),  traditional  fuels  and  waste  heat from industrial processes,
waste incinerators, engines or gas turbines.

Organic Rankine Cycle
The Rankine Cycle is a thermodynamic cycle that converts heat into work. The heat is supplied to a closed loop, which typically uses water as working fluid. The Organic Rankine Cycle’s principle is  based  on  a  turbogenerator  working  as  a  conventional  steam  turbine  to  transform  thermal  energy  into mechanical  energy  and  finally  into  electric  energy  through  an  electrical  generator.  Instead  of  generating steam from water, the ORC-system vaporizes an organic fluid, characterized by a molecular mass higher than that of water, which leads to a slower rotation of the turbine, lower pressures and no erosion of the metal parts and blades.
