CTP Team to supply waste heat recovery plant to Turkey

Published by
World Cement,

CTP Team Italy has signed a turnkey contract for a waste heat recovery project at Cimko Narli cement plant, a subsidiary of Sanko Holding. The project will apply an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) system for the first time in Turkey. The waste heat recovery system will have a capacity of 7 MW, providing about 12% of the current plant’s electricity needs. The plant is scheduled to start operating in early 2019.

“The project will be the first project based on ORC technology with a thermal oil loop in Turkey for heat recovery from the cement industry, “ said CTP Team Assistant General Manager Acelya Arik and Sales Director Marco Ernesto Donghi.

“Our cement customers are trying to reduce operating costs in the sector and electricity is one of the highest costs. Cement producers already know the advantages of a heat recovery system: decrease electricity cost in the electricity bill; increase of competitiveness in international arena; and no additional fuel consumption. The energy production will be higher than 30 GWh/year entirely consumed by the cement plant,” the CTP Team managers continued.

“From an environmental point of view, the avoided CO2 emission will be about 15 000 tpy and additionally, no water will be consumed in the waste heat recovery plant. It means that energy is generated without consuming natural resources by using organic fluid instead of water, while preventing waste heat from being released into the air. Since, this project is the first ORC-based heat recovery plant in Turkish cement factory, it will be an important milestone that will push further heat recovery projects in this field.”
