Novel Power Plant
The power plant, built in 2004 and located in Novara, is certified as a High-Efficiency Cogeneration (HEC) plant according to the highest energy efficiency standards.
Supplied with natural gas, it is made up of a plant for the combined production of electricity and steam (cogeneration) based on the modern turbogas-turbosteam combined cycle technology. It has an electrical power of 105 MW (71 MW Turbogas and 34 MW Turbosteam) and is capable of producing approximately 700 GWh/year of electricity.
Of this, about 80 GWh/year is transferred to Radici Chimica SpA, a RadiciGroup company.
The remaining power is inserted in the national grid to be sold in the Energy Exchange or used by other RadiciGroup facilities and Geoenergie customers.
The over 600,000 tons of steam produced per year is transferred, in its entirety, to Radici Chimica SpA, to be used in the production cycle.
In this manner, Radici Chimica SpA reduces emissions by approximately 35%, thanks to the advantages of cogeneration, which are combined with the use of advanced technology and the reduced environmental impact of natural gas.
