The Industry 4.0 parameters include control of the cogeneration process and energy supply. Digital control systems are now essential to monitor the performance of the production cycle and its energy requirements, at any time, allowing timely interventions, optimizing the process while reducing costs. However, when we talk about energy production, alongside production data measurement and control, other elements come into the game, including the need to comply with strict and necessary environmental standards.
Solar Turbines, that produces energy generation solutions, is turning to sophisticated technologies capable of producing more with a smaller environmental impact. Increased power of gas-turbines can go with reduced CO2 emissions, to meet paper mills’ energy requirements and its environmental sustainability. Solar Turbines is presenting two new types of gas turbines within its gas turbine ranges: the most recent models have been shown to be suited also to the needs of the paper industry by enhancing the Taurus 70 family, with versions producing 7.5 to 8.2 MWe, and the Titan 130, which ranges from 15 to 16.5 MWe.
