Pulp & Paper

The Pulp & Paper industry requires typically high amount of power and heat in forms of hot air and/or steam which makes the gas turbine based cogeneration (or CHP: Combined Heat and Power) the obvious solution for a cleaner, more efficient Pulp and Paper industry.

Tissue Industry

The Most Energy Efficient Solution For The Tissue Production

While producing the electricity for the tissue machine, the cogeneration system provides also the hot air and the steam for the drying process.

The gas turbine exhaust gases are directed to the Yankee hood to directly dry the tissue and the remaining energy is used in a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) to generate the steam for the Yankee cylinder. Depending on the grade, natural gas burners can also be turned off in the Yankee hood and the boiler.  The system reaches very high energy efficiency and consequently significant energy costs savings.  

Depending on local conditions, you can reach up to 50% energy cost savings and payback time within 2 years.

Paper Industry

Solar Turbines installed more than 1.6 GWe of equipment in the Paper Industry (Box Board, Container Board, Printing and Writing…), which corresponds to more than 150 plants worldwide. With gas turbine ranging from 2 to 22MW, it is the perfect fit for most of the paper mills due to the typical Heat to power ratio. When switching from coal to gas, it is the perfect solution with efficient power generation and air pollutant reduction.

What is Congeneration in the Pulp & Paper Industry?

In the Pulp and Paper industry, cogeneration can be steam generation, raw material direct drying (sludge, pulp, lime) with Gas Turbines exhaust gases, final products direct drying with exhaust gases (see Tissue below) while producing part or all the plant electrical needs. Solar Turbines is one of the unique power generation suppliers with references in these applications.

Compared to the national grid power generation and heat generation, our CHP/Cogeneration installations typically reduce our customer’s carbon foot print.

As a solution provider Solar Turbines can provide you from the Gas Turbine package up to the cogeneration/CHP plant and even project financing when needed.
