Centrax Has Power Needs Covered For Tissue Producer
Centrax Gas Turbines will supply the power package for a new plant that will meet the growing demand for tissue products throughout northern and central Africa.
Tunisian tissue producer AZUR will use a Centrax 501-KB5 gas turbine to provide the plant’s electricity. The gas-fueled indoor 501-KB5 package produces up to 3.9 MW of power, with its exhaust heat recovered for the manufacturing processes, Centrax said.
The Centrax package provides enough power to enable AZUR to supply its large domestic market while also exporting 20% of its products to Algeria and a further 10% to Libya, the company said.
Located in Zaghauan, 100 km south of Tunis, this plant will house new papermaking machinery capable of producing 9000 tonnes of tissue and hygiene products each year.
