Case 1: Thermal power plant energy efficiency

Medium-large size company specialized in the production of feed for aquaculture

TARGET

Reduce the consumption of methane and electricity by replacing the diathermic oil generator with a modern water steam generator.

OPERATION

Installation of a water steam generator, dimensioned on the real needs and equipped with an economizer for the recovery of heat on the fumes and the preheating of the combustion air.

BENEFITS

The intervention saved 120,000 Sm3 / year of methane, corresponding to around € 40,000 / year, and € 5,000 / year of electricity. Furthermore, 87 TEEs / year were obtained. The initial investment was € 130,000.

Case 2: Heat recovery on dryers

Medium-large size company specialized in the production of feed for aquaculture

TARGET

Take advantage of the thermal energy made available by the water leaving the cogeneration unit to preheat the air entering the dryer, thus reducing the consumption of methane gas.

OPERATION

Design of air / water heat exchangers to be placed above the dryer, respecting the following operating parameters: water and air inlet temperatures, available water flow and air flow.

BENEFITS
The investment required was € 35,000 and allowed to reduce the consumption of methane by about half, equal to 250,000 Sm3 / year, resulting in savings of about € 80,000 / year.

Case 3: Electrical system efficiency

Company specialized in the production of pasta

TARGET

Eliminate the penalties imposed by the distributor and reduce transport losses by installing a power factor correction system.

OPERATION

Distributed power factor correction of each load by connecting a capacitor bank. In this way, both the reactive power required by the supply network, the currents present in the distribution system and consequently also the losses and voltage drops are reduced.

BENEFITS

The initial investment was € 9,000. The intervention made it possible to completely eliminate the penalties from the distributor and save about 3% of electricity.
