The steam demand in the factory (average of 24 t/h with peaks up to 35 t/h at low pressure) made FOREL decide to install a simple cycle plant, with a 12.5 MW gas turbine, that allowed the production of 35 t/h of saturated steam at 10 bar in a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG).
The main equipment was located outdoors (as usual in chemical industries) and buildings to locate control panels, electrical equipment and gas systems were constructed.
After that, in order to maximize the exhaust gases utilization, a steam turbine was installed, which allowed to keep the plant at full load and with high efficiency all the time
AESA’s contribution to the project consisted of the redefinition of the Basic Engineering and the development, purchasing and permits management, construction management, supervision of the installation commissioning and performances tests.
