Electrical modernisation of Clariant cogeneration plant in Moosburg/Bavaria

Project description

The waste heat boiler for the new energy centre at the Swiss chemicals company Clariant’s Moosburg site near Landshut is equipped with around 2,000 pipes for steam generation, and weighs 40 tonnes. From December 2013 to February 2014, Kreutzpointner-Industrietechnik carried out the electrical modernisation of the cogeneration plant on behalf of the boiler manufacturer astebo GmbH. Kreutzpointner-Industrietechnik has been supporting the current Clariant (formerly Süd-Chemie) site in Moosburg with a complete range of on-site EI&C services since 1992.

Clariant's goal is to increase the energy efficiency of its Moosburg site. Since 2014, the new combined heat and power plant, with a thermal output of 18 MW and an electrical output of 1.9 MW, has been covering the local demand for up to 20 tonnes per hour of process steam, while its ten micro gas turbines mean it also covers one third of the electricity demand. This high efficiency upgrade cuts around 4,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year.
