[dropcap]F[/dropcap]erretti Group is continuing to invest in its Ancona facility, in this case in an important project in the name of energy efficiency and sustainability. The trigeneration plant will be able to reduce by up to 79 per cent the consumption of electrical and thermal energy needed to air condition the production environments, thus meeting the production needs of the facility, which covers an area of over 25,000 square meters and requires constant temperature control. In detail, inside the plant there is a high-efficiency gas-fired co-generator with an electrical power of 500 kWe and thermal power of 600 kWt, together with a 460 kWf absorber for the production of cold water for cooling that uses the thermal energy recovered from the plant itself.
The design and installation of the work will be conducted by Samso Spa, Energy Service Company (E.S.Co.) active in Italy in the design, construction and financing of energy efficiency interventions.
Once fully operational, this installation will lead to a reduction of about 79 per cent of the demand for electricity and 32 per cent of thermal energy, estimating an annual primary energy saving of 20 per cent.
Besides the trigeneration plant, in the site area Ferretti Group has also installed a solar photovoltaic system for the production of electricity and for the conversion of lighting systems with LED lamps.
