CTP and Secil sign an EPC contract for a WHR system

07 October 2020

Italy's CTP Team has signed a turnkey EPC contract with Secil Group for a new WHR system at Outão Cement factory in Portugal. The project consists of providing a customized solution to feed a double-loop system (thermal oil + Organic), to recover waste heat and produce electricity from three different sources: the kiln pre-heater, clinker cooler of the existing 4000tpd cement unit, and a new solar field that Secil will install nearby to the production line. 

The new heat exchangers by CTP will recover up to 29MW of waste heat to feed a new ORC, equipped with a state-of-the-art axial turbine of 7.2MW by Turboden. The new WHR unit is expected to generate approximately 50,000MWh per year, covering more than 30% of the current plant’s electricity needs. The first kW generation is scheduled for the 2H22.
