Ferretti Group builds a trigeneration plant in the Ancona site

Ferretti Group’s investments in the Ancona shipyard continue, in this case it is an important project that improves energy efficiency and sustainability. The trigeneration plant will enable to reduce by up to 79% the consumption of electrical and thermal energy needed to air condition the production environments, thus meeting the production needs of the Super Yacht Yard in Ancona, which covers an area of over 25,000 square meters and requires constant temperature control. 

Design and installation are the work of Samso Spa, Energy Service Company (E.S.Co.) active in Italy in the design, construction and financing of energy efficiency interventions. In detail, inside the plant there is a high-efficiency gas-fired co-generator with an electrical power of 500 kWe and thermal power of 600 kWt, together with a 460 kWf absorber for the production of cold water for cooling that uses the thermal energy recovered from the plant itself. 

Overall this intervention, once fully operational, will lead to a reduction of about 79% of the demand for electricity and 32% of thermal energy, estimating an annual primary energy saving of 20%. 

In the site area, Ferretti Group has also installed a solar photovoltaic system for the production of electricity and for the conversion of lighting systems with LED lamps.
