Biomass fuelled cogeneration power plant

Technologically advanced plant of 6MW

Indunor, a company of the Silvateam group, is a leading producer of quebracho extracts which are mainly used for vegetable tanned leathers.

The main manufacturing plant is located at La Escondida in the Chaco region of Argentina which is an area rich in quebracho forests. In 2000, the plant needed large amounts of steam for the extraction process and electricity for the plant’s operation. A design was requested for the construction of a new biomass steam generator with a steam production of 60t/hour at a pressure of 55 Bar and a temperature of 450°C. The turbine powers a 6MW generator.

The design and installation has been entirely handled by Silvateam staff.
