Elettronica Santerno inverters chosen for the new district heating station in North Turin

Santerno has announced its participation in the important North Turin project being carried out by Iren Energia, an Iren Group company active in the sectors of the production and distribution of electricity and heating by means of renewable or assimilated energy sources.

The project envisages the creation of a new combined cycle cogeneration station, 400 MW electrical power and 220 MW thermal. The plant, beginning with the season 2011-2012, will heat a district of 18 million cubic metres with a population of about 180 thousand.

On completion of the works roughly 55% of the city of Turin will be heated, with significant benefits in terms of energy saving and improvement in the quality of the air. Santerno will be contributing to the innovative industrial project with a total of 24 inverter switchboards from 800 to 100 kW.

In particular, eight inverters with a power of 800 kW will be used in the pumping station, consisting of two groups in series, one on the delivery and one on the return from the district heating grid. Four less powerful ones will be installed in the pressurising system of the district heating grid.

The remaining 12 inverters (8 of them 800 kW) will be positioned respectively in the re-pumping station RP4, a strategic part of the new district heating grids created in the context of the North Turin Project, and in the underground heat exchange substation of Le Vallette, to deliver heat to the buildings.

“We’re proud to supply Iren Energia with quality inverters for the district heating pumps, coupling energy efficiency with environmental sustainability,” says Elettronica Santerno Marketing Manager Franco Valentini. “This is a shining example of how industrial innovation brings concrete benefits to the whole country.”
