As energy usage and demands transition toward renewable sources and flexible solutions, it is important to ensure that cogeneration assets continue to help these operations meet their financial targets – both on day one and in a future driven by low-carbon fuel integration, high flexibility needs and new energy markets. Gas turbine equipment must serve as more than just power – and heat-making machines. Pulp and paper operations are seeking intelligent solutions that:
- Reduce energy costs today and in the future;
- Maximize the use of renewables when available with flexible power and heat generation;
- Offer flexibility in terms of using low-carbon fuels;
- Remain power and heat-resilient to guarantee tissue production output.
Achieving all of these goals is possible with the right partner – one with the required technical capabilities, demonstrated financial solidity and long-term strategy, for maintaining and upgrading assets for the next 25 years. With a fleet of more than 16,000 units and 1,200 gas turbine powered industrial cogeneration plants worldwide, Solar Turbines is well placed to provide such solutions to the pulp and paper market.
