Energy supply for pulp and paper production

The technology involved in the production of pulp and paper is very challenging. But what about its energy supply? Due to the large amount of energy required in the production process, the energy supply deserves to be given appropriate attention.

This paper will outline the types of energy needed for the production process and explain which primary energy sources can be used. And it will focus on suitable energy conversion technology, its availability and the benefits of its service concepts.

We will also address the reduction of lifecycle costs and discuss sustainable solutions to satisfy all stakeholders.

Packaging solutions for gas turbines

The efficiency and cost of the core engine are often the focus of attention when discussing gas turbines. However, operators are aware of the importance of the reliability and serviceability of the surrounding package.

To demonstrate different options and to highlight the most relevant features, we will present the package and its main components including its control system. Furthermore, we will show how swift and cost-efficient commissioning and maintenance are fostered through standardization and modularization.

Finally, we will anticipate future trends in gas turbines and their influence on packaging solutions in order to increase the longevity of the package.
