EKZ GETEC and Jura Cement have agreed to deploy a system developed by ABB for recovering energy from waste heat in the Wildegg (AG) cement plant. This ultra-modern solution is based on ORC technology (organic rankine cycle), which transforms waste heat into eco-friendly power. This results in a major drop in energy costs at the Wildegg plant and Jura Cement requires around 20% less power. The system is being financed by EKZ GETEC and the Swiss Federal Office of Energy as a strategically important energy project forming part of the Energy Switzerland program.
ABB had all the necessary expertise to fully integrate the power plant into the cement production process. The assignment encompassed the design, project planning, delivery, installation and commissioning of the turnkey power plant.
14,400 megawatt hours of electrical energy can be generated using ABB’s waste heat recovery system. This meets the power needs of around 3,600 households in Switzerland.
INP staff were continually present on-location over the 16-month project duration and took charge of supervising the entire installation on behalf of ABB, e.g. instructing, monitoring, testing and correcting the electrical installation, as well as managing the commissioning of the primary and secondary electrical components of the low-voltage systems, the entire electrical installation, and the instrumentation and control systems.
