Macchi supplied to Hera for this Project (on TURN-KEY basis) No. 2 Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSGs).

Macchi units, installed behind ROLLS ROYCE gas turbines RB211 model, are two pressure levels:

HP level: 38 t/h – 61 barA – 487 °C

LP level: 9 t/h – 11 barA – 230 °C

The units have been supplied equipped with a SCR NOx abatement system, in order to considerably reduce the emissions level, achieving the following targets:
