New, highly efficient combined gas and steam power plant in Frohnleiten

30.10.2018 - Innovations / Investments, Company / Mills

It has long been the aim of MM Karton to use energy resources as efficiently as is technically possible. Our combined gas and steam power plant (CCPP for short) which has been in operation in our Frohnleiten mill since the beginning of January 2018, is an ideal current example.

One power plant, two processes

The CC power plant works on the principle of heat and power cogeneration, and it combines the principle of a gas turbine power plant with that of a steam power plant. In generating electricity, hot exhaust gases are created in the two gas turbines. This waste heat is used to generate steam in the downstream waste heat boiler and this steam in turn generates electricity in a steam turbine, thereby making the power plant highly efficient. This dual method of operation achieves a very high level of efficiency. In ideal circumstances, over 90 % of the energy contained in the natural gas primary fuel is used. Part of the waste heat extracted from the flue gases of the waste heat boiler is fed into the district heat network and so to the households connected to it.

The new CC power plant in Frohnleiten is a prime example of efficient
energy resources

Partners in renewable energy

The combined cycle power plant went into normal operation at the end of October 2018. It guarantees high, long-term operational security in terms of energy supply for the Frohnleiten mill. The energy-efficient generation of steam and power by means of heat and power cogeneration is economically and ecologically the right approach for reliably meeting current emission thresholds and environmental targets.
