Nordpower

Manager:  Nordpower Srl • Location: Merano/Meran (Bolzano / Bozen, South Tyrol, Italy)
Plant: 1 x ZE-50-ULH Low-Temperature Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) Module, nominal output 50 kWe
Application: Heat recovery from processes (pyrolitic gasification) and engines (syngas-fueled genset)


Mappa NordPowerThe client who commissioned this plant - Nordpower srl - is an ad-hoc enterprise located in a suburb of Merano/Meran, not far from the northern border of Italy, created for the purpose of producing electric power as a technological demonstrator of the technology combining the Burkhardt gasifiers and ORC systems.

The plant served by the Zuccato Energia ORC system is composed of two Burkhardt wood pellet gasifiers producing combustible gas fuel (syngas) feeding two MAN gensets with an overall power output of 360kWe.

The ZE-50-ULH ORC module supplied by Zuccato Energia takes waste heat recovered from both the pyrolitic process (which would otherwise wasted in the output gases) and from the cooling jackets and flue gases of the MAN gensets, and converts it into electricity.

The equipment supplied by Zuccato Energia - a standard ZE-50-ULH ORC module - adds a further 45kWE to the 360kWE produced by the gasifier/genset plant, thus raising total power output to 405 kWE and increasing performance by about 9% with respect to the "naked" system. The compactness of the standard ORC skid allowed it to be installed in the same technical space hosting the gasifiers and the engines.
The gasifiers are fed locally-produced wood pellets, a biomass fuel which - as all biomass - is CO2-neutral, given that the carbon dioxide released during gasification and combustion is the same that was been captured during the growth of the trees from which the pellet comes.
