Maine Woods Pellet Co. chooses Turboden ORC Technology Instead of Traditional Steam

Announced Date :  Apr 20, 2017


Turboden, a group company of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and a leader in Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbogenerators for distributed power generation employing renewable sources and waste heat, provides an ORC system to Maine Woods Pellet, a leading pellet manufacturer based in Athens, Maine (USA).
Turboden supplied a biomass ORC unit to produce 8 MWe, the largest biomass solution produced by Turboden nowadays. The plant is successfully in operation since October 2016 and, has already outperformed the expected power output, producing 9 MWe.

Thanks to this solution, the customer utilizes wood waste from forestry operations (logging and sawmill residues) to generate electricity to be employed in its production process.

This cogeneration plant uses a novel combination of both exhaust and condenser heat to pre-dry the feedstock for the existing pellet plant, making this the first biomass project to fully qualify for Massachusetts Standard Class 1 regulations for Renewable Energy Credits (REC’s).
