Ahlstrom, Saint-Séverin, Charente, France
This project served a dual purpose – powering a production plant specialising in vegetable parchment for the food industry for international company Ahlstrom, Saint-Séverin, while also supplying electricity to the national grid.
The 8.5 MW capacity CX300 we installed is a CHP solution that generates power for French utility company ENGIE Cofely, while the waste heat is harnessed in Ahlstrom’s paper manufacturing processes. This neatly combines micro-level power with a contribution to national energy efficiency. Centrax has become a trusted supplier to ENGIE Cofely, this project adding to over 30 units we have already installed for the company’s various end users across France.
