First for Centrax in Tunisia
A contract to supply a CX501-KB7 gas turbine powered generator set to Tunisian papermill, Sotipapier has been placed with Centrax. The new 5.2 MWe indoor package is the first generator set sold by Centrax of Newton Abbot, England into Tunisia. The natural gas-fuelled unit will be used for cogeneration at the Sotipapier papermill in the town of Belli 30 kilometres from Tunis. As well as supplying power for the Sotipapier factory, the heat output from the turbine will be used for the production of steam, as part of the paper manufacturing process. Delivery of the unit will be in early 2006.
Sotipapier specialises in the manufacture of brown wrapping paper and test liner paper and was one of the first in Tunisia to invest in cardboard recycling and the treatment of waste water to reduce the impact on the environment.
