ROLLS-ROYCE wins contracts to power Rome and Milan airports to self-efficiency
Two of Italy’s major international airports - Fiumicino in Rome and Malpensa in Milan - are set to achieve energy self-sufficiency through new Rolls-Royce power plants.

At Malpensa, Rolls-Royce will supply a second 25MW industrial RB211 gas turbine to power an environmentally-friendly electrical generating plant being constructed by the Swiss power systems packager Turbomach.

It will be installed alongside an existing RB211 combined cycle unit to supply the Italian airport with electrical energy, and in addition thermal energy used for air conditioning in the airport terminals.

Fiumicino will have three Rolls-Royce natural gas-fuelled Bergen B-gas engines running alongside the current electrical supply network, considerably reducing costs and reducing the environmental impact by cutting NOx.

They will supply the Rome airport with its electrical energy, the waste heat from the engines being used as thermal energy (superheated water) for air conditioning in the airport terminals during the summer months and for internal heating requirements during the winter.
Giuseppe Ciongoli, the regional director for Rolls-Royce in Italy, said: “The operators of Rome and Milan airports have selected the best option for their individual needs to enable their airports to operate successfully and safely. We are in a unique position in Rolls-Royce, being able to supply customers with the choice of either gas engines or gas turbines.

”Each year, there are hundreds of take-offs and landings by Rolls-Royce powered aircraft at Rome and Milan, so it will be very satisfying to know that we are also helping their safe arrival and departure by providing the power for vital and essential services on the ground”.
Continuous expansion programmes at both Fiumicino and Malpensa has resulted in the need for an energy production plants giving total self-sufficiency of the airports from outside sources. The new Rolls-Royce powered plants, which enter service in 2008, will be capable of providing the additional energy required to meet the increase in passenger numbers.
There is also a requirement for the energy to be produced in a way that benefits the environment. The efficiency of the both the RB211 gas turbine and the Bergen B-gas engines results in a substantial reduction in the level of emissions released to the atmosphere and in energy savings, due to the reduced amount of fuel used compared to other forms of generating plant.
