RHI AND ITALCEMENTI CHOOSE TURBODEN

Brescia, October 3rd 2008 - Turboden, the specialist designer and manufacturer of Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbines and turbogenerators since 1980, was recently awarded two new contracts for ORC modules that will generate electricity by recovering heat from industrial processes.

In April 2008, Turboden was awarded by RHI a contract for a 1 MW ORC module to produce electricity recovering heat from a calcining furnace at the Radenthein sintered magnesite production plant in Austria. RHI is the world leading supplier of heat-resistant refractory products for the metal, cement, lime, glass, non-ferrous, energy, environment and process industries throughout the world. The plant start up is expected for the first half of 2009.


In August 2008 Turboden finalized another important agreement for a process heat recovery ORC plant of about 2 MW. The client is Ciments du Maroc, a company belonging to ITALCEMENTI Group through Ciments Français. The ORC will recover heat from exhaust gas of the clinker furnace at the new production plant in Ait Baha, Morocco. The plant start up is expected for the second half of 2009.

The use of ORC technology for recovering waste heat represents one of the most attractive applications of Turboden modules. Potential clients include process industries such as cement, glass, steel and non ferrous industries. Turbogenerators used for heat recovery applications have a power range of 500 kWel to 5 MWel. Heat recovery application from industrial process, as well as from gas turbines and reciprocating engines, have a great potential especially in the current energy and fuel costs scenario.

Turboden ORC technology allows recovering waste heat increasing the process efficiency and generating electricity. This means reducing process energy costs and exposure on market price volatilities. The use of Turboden technology allows access to Energy Savings Certificates (ESC).

Compared to other solutions, Turboden ORCs combine high efficiency with ease of operation and minimum maintenance.
These two new projects for RHI and ITALCEMENTI prove that Turboden solutions perfectly suit the market demand for heat recovery in process industries.
