FIS is an Italian company specialised in the production of chemical products for the pharmaceutical industry.
FIS’s core business is Custom Synthesis, which is the exclusive production of intermediates, advanced intermediates and active ingredients for pharmaceutical companies. FIS employs approximately 900 people divided among various company functions.



The initial energy assessment of the structure found:

  • Significant electrical consumption, with a constant daily and annual use
  • Significant heating consumption in the winter, with a consistent pattern of daily use
  • Significant cooling consumption throughout the year

The FIS plant occupies a total area of 95,000 square metres.
The average hourly electrical consumption is about 6 MWe during the week and 2.5 MWe during the weekend.



The tri-generation plant built at the FIS plant in Montecchio Maggiore, Vicenza, has an electrical capacity of 2 MWe, a heating capacity of 1,814 MWt and a cooling capacity of 0.675 MWf.

With more than 35 years of experience and over 500 installed plants, CPL is the most reliable partner for the construction and maintenance of co-generation plants fuelled by methane and biogas, able to ensure the best management and maintenance performance to maximise energy efficiency and profit for the benefit of customers and their businesses.



The main advantages achieved with the implementation of the tri-generation system are:

  • Energy efficiency: energy production with high energy conversion rates (energy savings)
  • Localised generation: energy production directly at the site of use (elimination of distribution losses)
  • Increase in the operating hours of the plant (boosting summer operation)
  • Reduction of CO2 emissions
