Announced today by Italian Exergy, a company of Maccaferri Industrial Group, has been awarded a contract by Enel Green Power for the supply of an ORC radial outflow turbine as core component of an innovative geothermal plant.
This plant, producing electricity of up to 1 MW, extracts heat from a geothermal resource in Bagnore (Mount Amiata), Italy.
The turbine that will be installed in the plant of Enel Green Power is a brand new one: it is the first radial outflow turbine, developed exclusively by Exergy, employed in a geothermal plant, granting superior efficiency respect to traditional solutions. Its technological features make possible the explotiation of geothermal resources usually abandoned because of their low temperature. (100-180 degrees Celsius).
Bagnore geothermal plant, will be exploiting a new, not utilized, resource, ,
Exergy, part of SECI Energia – Gruppo Industriale Maccaferri, designs and manufactures ORC modules based on its radial outflow turbines, rated from 500 kWe to 5 MWe for full electric or co-generative applications, together with complete tailor-made solutions for big plants.
