Food Processing Industry, Thailand
Food processing is a vital industry in Thailand, with the country being a major exporter of rice, seafood, and processed fruits and vegetables. One of the key challenges faced by food processing plants is the high energy consumption required to operate the machinery and equipment.
Cogeneration, also known as combined heat and power (CHP), is a technology that can help food processing plants reduce their energy costs and improve their environmental performance. Cogeneration involves the simultaneous production of electricity and heat from a single fuel source, typically biomass such as rice husk. The heat produced can be used for various purposes, such as heating and cooling, while the electricity can be used to power the plant’s operations.
Steam Turbines are often used in cogeneration systems to convert the thermal energy from the heat source into mechanical energy, which is then used to generate electricity. These turbines can deliver very good overall efficiency since the power generated is incidental from the same source of fuel being used to provide the steam to the process plant.
Turtle Turbines is a manufacturer of Cogeneration steam turbine equipment for power generation, suitable for operation on the Saturated steam boilers operating in the food processing industry. Based in India, the company has a focus on providing sustainable solutions for power generation and energy efficiency. Turtle Turbines offers a range of steam turbines in various sizes and configurations to meet the needs of different applications.
