LANDINI S.p.A. produces building materials, offering a range of products that has continued to developed over the years. With three production facilities, advanced plants and machinery, an area of 220,000 sq. m, of which 80,000 indoors, and a staff of about 300 people, it is able to meet the most diverse needs of its many Italian and international customers.



An 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 annual energy needs of the LANDINI plant are equal to 20,272 MWh of electricity and 5,954 MWh of thermal energy in the form of steam, hot water and cooling energy produced by the absorption chiller unit.



The tri-generation plant built at the Landini plant in Castelnovo Sotto, Reggio Emilia has an electrical capacity of 1.0 MWe, a thermal capacity of 1,216 MWt and a cooling capacity of 0.884 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
  • Primary energy savings equal to 14.4%
