Centrax Gas Turbines offers a range of power packages using up-to-date technology that can be used in combined heat and power (CHP) which is ideally suited to paper production – making it better for the environment and better for profits.
Centrax has designed and installed gas turbine packages for nearly 60 years and understands the importance of generating reliable and efficient power. Which is why it has invested in a comprehensive service system throughout Europe and Russia – to provide local support and maintenance, ensuring that units are in optimal condition and leaving customers free to take care of their core business.
All of Centrax’s generator packages use reliable, high-performance Siemens core engines, and with power outputs ranging from 3 MW to 15 MW, packages can be scaled to match customers’ specific needs. This power range is ideally suited to the demands of paper production with packages offering excellent operational flexibility.
In Italy, Centrax Gas Turbines has supplied Favini Srl papermill with a CX501-KB5 high-efficiency cogeneration power plant.
The indoor unit provides 3.8 MW of electricity plus 23 tonnes per hour of saturated steam used in the papermaking process. Favini benefits from Centrax’s in-country customer support centre which services the unit as part of a comprehensive maintenance contract.
Another CX300 8.5 MW is powering Ahlstrom Munksjö, Saint-Séverin, France, a world leader in the production of sulphurised paper for the food industry. The generator set powers the site and produces steam and electricity for the plant and its processes.
