Tenova Re Energy to Supply EAF Recovery System
January 23, 2012
Tenova Re Energy signed a contract with Feralpi Siderurgica to supply an EAF iRecovery® system for its German plant Elbe Stahlwerke Feralpi GmbH. According to Tenova Re Energy, the system will recover up to 20 MW from the off gas of the existing EAF. The recovered energy is converted into steam, which is partly sold to a local energy carrier and partly utilized by an ORC turbine generating 2.5 MW of electrical energy. It is the first time superheated steam generated from an EAF is used to produce electricity. The iRecovery system at Elbe Stahlwerke Feralpi will be commissioned in early 2013.
