case study CHP palette factory

CHP plant for palette factory

5MW heat-and-power system

This project is the development of a 5MW Combined-Heat-and-Power plant for a palette factory in the Black Forest (Germany). The system will be fired with wood off-cuts from the palette production. Electricity will be generated by a 900kW module based on the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC).

The plant will generate heat for the factory itself and for the rest of the village, including a hospital, school, town hall and mineral spring. Contracts for the heat supply to consumers are in place. Electricity will be fed into the public grid.

Total project costs are of the order 10 million.
