De Pretto Industrie has just been awarded by Novel S.p.A. (JV between Gruppo Radici 49% and Alpiq 51%) with the supply of a new 33 MW Turbogenerator set comprising of a condensing steam turbine, a reducing gearbox and a generator to be installed in their 100 MWel cogeneration plant in Novara.
This new powergen train will be replacing the existing one, installed by De Pretto Industrie back in 2004, with the aim to increase the performances and power output keeping however the same footprint, foundations and interfaces of the old one.
Our Turbomachinery team is particularly proud of this great achievement because:
- the customer put again its trust in De Pretto Industrie after 16+ years of operation of the existing unit proving the reliability and quality of our equipment;
- De Pretto Industrie has been selected among other well known international turbomachinery brands showing again its ability to manage the complexity, challenges and limitations of a turnkey brownfield powergen project;
- the technical, commercial and contractual negotiations have been held during the lockdown period without any face to face meeting;
We are very proud of this success in such a challenging time.
