Waste wood CHP project from Turboden

A 6.5 MW Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) engine has been installed at a site in the UK’s Sheffield generating power from waste heat.

Principal EPC contractor Kantor Energy Ltd, a specialist district heating design & building engineering company, selected Turboden Srl to supply the ORC turbogenerator with air condensers.

The project will be built on a brownfield site in Holbrook Industrial Estate, annually utilizing around 55,000 tonnes of waste timber wood from demolition sites. It will also supply renewable heat to the local district heating network, which will warm over 6,700 houses and commercial properties in the area.

Once in operation, the plant will sell electricity to GDF Suez UK under a long-term power off take agreement. Veolia Energy Services Ltd has been awarded the long-term operation and maintenance contract on behalf of Equitix.

The Turboden ORC system (pictured) is expected to cut greenhouse emissions by approximately 12,700 tonnes of CO2e per year.
