Toscotec will supply a technological upgrade to Cartiera del Vignaletto at their Zevio production site near Verona in Northern Italy. The project includes the complete upgrade of the cogeneration plant and air systems of the mill’s PM4 and PM5. 

With this investment, Cartiera del Vignaletto aims to substantially increase the energy efficiency of its operations by installing cutting edge energy generation equipment designed for energy saving. 

Cartiera del Vignaletto comments, “Toscotec delivered a tailor-made technical proposal based on our specific requirements by developing interesting ideas step by step with our team. They also demonstrated a high degree of flexibility in putting forward a customised implementation plan that would allow us to efficiently integrate the installation phase with our production shutdown program.”

Domenico Ventura, Application Engineer at Toscotec, says, “We are very happy to begin a cooperation with an important Italian producer such as Cartiera del Vignaletto. The new cogeneration plant is state-of-the-art for energy efficiency and the installation of Toscotec’s TT Hydrogen Burner with a customized design for cogeneration provides the mill with a wide range of operation options in the future.”
