Case study details

Italian multinational Lucart is a European leader in the production of tissue, air-laid, and machine-glazed papers. It's also a pioneer of energy-efficient solutions in the pulp and paper industry—and was the sector's first company to focus on self-production of electricity and steam with cogeneration turbines to reduce CO₂ emissions at its plants.

Lucart selected Baker Hughes as technology partner to improve the efficiency and carbon footprint of its existing combined heat and power (CHP) generation systems at two plants in Tuscany. NovaLT™12 gas turbines were at the core of our upgrade solution.
