Solar process steam and space heating in Martini & Rossi
Today, as you read these lines, TVP’s high vacuum flat panels are producing hot water for space heating in Martini & Rossi (M&R) plant. Starting from April, the same solar thermal system will generate steam to feed the production processes of the plant. Thanks to the SHIP2FAIR teams of M&R and TVP the solar system has been installed, integrated into the plant’s energy system, successfully tested and entered into operation.
Now, collaborative work has shifted towards the integration of the SHIP2FAIR control tool and the introduction of advanced monitoring and control strategies for the optimisation of the overall thermal energy system. In this respect, two more partners of SHIP2FAIR are joining the effort: BEST Bioenergy and Sustainable Technologies and LINKS Foundation.
