ABB transforms waste heat to clean energy

ABB, EKZ GETEC and Jura ­Cement have signed an agreement to install an ABB system at the Wildegg AG cement plant, which generates power from waste heat. The advanced solution is based on ORC (­Organic Rankine Cycle). Once the system is in operation, the plant energy costs at the Wildegg plant will be reduced dramatically. Jura

Cement will have to purchase about 20 % less electricity. EKZ GETEC is financing the system. It is also supported by the Swiss Federal Department of Energy within its program “­EnergySwitzerland” as an energy strategical project. Marcel Bieri, production manager at Jura Cement, says: “We will be able to generate 14 400 MWh of electric ­power ­using ABB’s waste heat recovery system.” The turnkey power station order includes ­design, project management, ­delivery, in­stallation and commissioning and is scheduled to be started up in November 2013.
