Centrax Turning Up The Heat

Company supplying gen-set to geothermal heating plant in Paris

Posted on October 17, 2012

Centrax Gas Turbines received an order for a new CX501-KB7 generator set that will support the expansion of a major geothermal heating plant on the outskirts of Paris, France.

The order extends the partnership between Centrax and the plant’s owner, the Joint Geothermal Syndicate of Maisons-Alfort, established in 1999 when an earlier Centrax gas turbine package was installed.

The new 5.3MW indoor unit will supply electricity and heat to complement the output of a geothermal installation that powers a district heating system supplying more than 12 000 houses, apartments, schools, businesses and a university.

Centrax staff working to install the new gas turbine have removed the old package and modified the building and ductwork. The plant will be ready in November, the next heating season in Maisons-Alfort.
