Magaldi Power S.p.A

Headquartered in Italy since its beginnings in 1929, Magaldi Group proudly looks back on more than 90 years of excellence in engineering, design and the manufacturing of steel belt conveyors to handle materials in severe conditions.

The outstanding performances delivered by all Magaldi equipment, even in extremely difficult conditions (e.g. high handling rates, high material temperatures, steep incline, intensive continuous operation, etc.), are the result of high engineering standards. These standards have earned the Company a position of international leadership in heavy-duty equipment for bulk material handling and systems, used in coal-fired power plants, foundries, steel mills, mineral processing plants, cement plants, waste-to-energy plants and solid-fuel power plants.

Concerning waste-to-energy plants, Magaldi is specialized in dry bottom ash treatment systems for waste incinerators without environmental contamination. This innovative process eliminates the use of water for bottom ash cooling and allows the recovery and the valorization of ferrous and non-ferrous metals contained in the waste ash in higher quantity and quality.

In addition, Magaldi Group has also focused its efforts on technological innovation in the field of renewable energy generation and storage: in 2021 was founded Magaldi Green Energy, the start-up branch focused on research, development, production and commercialization of innovative technologies in the field of renewable energy generation and storage: STEM-CSP (Solar Thermo - Electric Magaldi) and MGTES (Magaldi Green Thermal Energy Storage).
