EP Produzione, the Italian generation company of Czech energy Group EPH (Energetický a průmyslový holding), relies on our tailor-made water tube boiler for an efficiency project in one of its northern Italy power plants.
Industrial auxiliary boilers are used in various industries to support the power generation work of a turbine.
They can be considered the spark of the entire plant. Reliability, excellent performance, and numerous customization possibilities are thus the main features required for these boilers.
It is no surprise that these were what EP Produzione wanted for the auxiliary island that will be placed inside the Tavazzano e Montanaso power plant near Milan, in northern Italy.
A sustainable growing power plant
The Tavazzano e Montanaso thermoelectric power plant covers an area of about 70 hectares, with an installed capacity of 1,140 MW and two combined-cycle units using only natural gas.
To meet the growing demands for electricity, the plant embarked on a new efficiency project, including constructing a new state-of-the-art combined-cycle unit.
The new unit will flank the two existing ones and have a net electrical power of about 800 MW and efficiency of more than 60 percent.
The combined cycle operation will also improve environmental performance, with further reductions in atmospheric emissions.
A turnkey auxiliary island
To start this new plant, EP Produzione chose the guaranteed high performance of water tube boilers from Cannon Bono Energia.
The complete auxiliary island we will supply consists of a CT series water tube boiler to produce 20 t/h of superheated steam at 310°C and 12 barg pressure.
The island also includes a thermophysical degasser for feedwater treatment, supplied by our sister company Cannon Artes, auxiliary equipment, and a control and management system, which connects the boiler to the central control system.
The boiler is designed for this application and intended to facilitate and simplify its maintenance and inspection.
