Taurus 70 Gas Turbine
Efficient and Sustainable Power
The Lucart Castelnuovo di Garfagnana tissue mill is part of the Lucart Group, one of the first European paper and tissue producers. The mill has inaugurated its cogeneration system which is comprised of a Taurus™ 70 gas turbine generator set, an air system with fans, burners, dampers, ducting and instrumentation for the hood, as well as a heat recovery steam generator, an air/air heat recovery and an air/water heat recovery system. The gas turbine flue gases are used to dry the paper without any further gas consumption, improving energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions significantly.
