Turboden joins Europe’s cogeneration association
Nov. 18, 2016 - Turboden has officially joined COGEN Europe. COGEN Europe is the European association for the promotion of cogeneration whose main goal is to work towards a wider use of cogeneration in Europe for a more sustainable energy future.
Turboden, a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries company, is a global leader in the design, manufacture and service of Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbogenerators, which harness heat to generate electric and thermal power from renewable sources (biomass, geothermal and solar energy) and waste heat from industrial processes, waste incinerators, engines and gas turbines, suitable for distributed generation. Turboden offers turbogenerators from 200 kW to 20 MW electric and currently counts more than 330 plants in 35 countries.
Thanks to its over 35-years experience in ORC turbogenerators, Turboden has proved itself able to design, manufacture and deliver more than 330 turbogenerators worldwide, of which more than 250 are cogenerative.
Paolo Bertuzzi, Managing Director and CEO of Turboden, declares: “Turboden has always believed in cogeneration and has always distinguished itself in providing innovative, high efficient and winning solutions. Since 1980, our company supplied more than 330 ORC plants in 35 countries, about 80% of which are cogenerative in biomass and waste to energy applications reaching more than 8,6 million hours of successfully operations. Turboden has developed geothermal cogenerative ORC plants as well and COGEN Europe’s Recognition Award we received this year confirms the strength, skill and innovation that Turboden has put in extending its range of applications into the geothermal field. Currently we are developing new geothermal plants in Turkey, Germany, Croatia and overseas confirming the strong competence of our company in this field. Moreover, today, we are launching a state-of-the-art ORC cogeneration system suitable for manufacturing process optimized for steam and power production. Reliability, Innovation and custom-oriented are the key words for Turboden, the Mitsubishi worldwide reference company for ORC technology”.
Marco Baresi, Institutional Relations Manager of Turboden and Vice-President of the Italian Association of Cogeneration System Manufacturers (Italcogen), states: “We are delighted to join COGEN Europe at a time when the EU policy framework for energy is being under revision and the Energy Efficiency Package is about to be published by the European Commission. Given the multiple legislative proposals at stake and possible repercussions on cogeneration and waste heat recovery systems, we will closely work with COGEN Europe in order to make the energy efficiency voice heard.”
