FORNOVO GAS compressors are often installed within Power Plant, if they are used to generate current or thermal energy:

Internal combustion engines
Gas turbines

In the first case, the endothermic engines need compressed gas at low pressures generally up to 3 – 8 bar.
In the second case, the turbines, depending on the size and model, require compressed gas up to pressures that can reach 25 – 65 bar.

Furthermore our compressors are used to supply quality compressed air to the auxiliary instruments present inside the plant and for special applications where compressed air or nitrogen up to 35 – 40 bar is required.

Thanks to the OIL FREE piston technology, post-compression oil removal systems are not required.

Below is the typical scheme of an energy production plant (electric and / or thermal) powered by gas:
