*including energy produced by the Ambiesta hydro–electric power plant

  • The power plant generates all the technological steam required by the paper mill.
  • The link to the 132kV electricity power grid allows for sporadic emission of electricity to the grid should thermo–electric energy production exceed need.

Power Plants

  • Two 65 bar, 460 °C boilers. One with a steam capacity of 62 t/h, the other 65 t/h.
  • Two 13 bar, 10 t/h thermal oil heaters.
  • A 6.0 MW mixed steam turbine, with a capacity of 52.5 t/h, 5.5 bar counter–pressure and max. condensate equalling 18 t/h with a 10 bar spill.
  • Two counter–pressure steam turbines, one of 3.0 MW (5.5bar) and the other 1,845 MW (10 bar) with an entry capacity of 30 and 18.5t/h.
