INDUSTRIAL AERONAUTICAL COMPLEX FOR THE FABRICATION OF PARTS OF BOEING B787 DREAMLINER CARBON FUSELAGE
GROTTAGLIE – Monteiasi (Taranto)
The project for Alenia Aeronautica’s new production complex represents, for its importance, the second industrial intervention in the South of Italy after Fiat, Melfi. Two sections of the fuselage of Boeing B787 Dreamliner, the first civil aircraft in carbon fibre, are produced on this site. Designed and realized in record time

Data of plants:
• Thermal station: 32,5 MW power installed, divided by 3 x 10 MW and 1 x 2,5 MW boilers. The generating system is made of a diathermic-mineral-oil primary circuit (at 240°C), feeding the autoclave for the treatment of the carbon fuselages, and two diathermic-oil/water heat exchangers for the production of hot water for heating and sanitary purposes.
• Cooling station: 25 MW power installed, divided by 5 centrifugal water chillers, 2 of which with inverter. In favourable environmental conditions (condensation water low temperature) the system cooling efficiency reaches COP=12.
• Compressed air station: 3+1 screw compressor units, cooled by dedicated closed circuit evaporative towers which can deliver 200 Nm³/min at 9 bar continuously.
• Vacuum station : 3 electro-compressors able to draw up to 3000 l/h at 700 mbar.
• Air treatment : no.10 Air Treatment Units for a total capacity of around 2,500,000 mc/h, 33% of which is external air and the remaining is recirculated air.
• HV/MV Electric substation: the whole complex is fed by a HV delivery (150 kV). The HV/MV Electric substation consists of 2 x 150/20 kV transformers (air), connected on the HV side to a sole point of delivery and on the other side to 20 kV outputs by 2 three-phase outdoor oil insulated transformers, with ONAN/ONAF cooling system (nominal capacity 16/20 MVA). Closed-ring configuration for MV secondary distribution cabins.
