Choosing the right unit

Choosing the right unit

Who can benefit from ORC

ORC is a great option if your primary need is heat but you still want to benefit from generating electricity. The system is completely fuel free. It is a brilliant and practical option if you want to make use of the emission free energy emitted by your machines as waste heat. 

Large Outputs

The ElectraTherm Power+ converts your waste heat into power. It is the leading technology due to it's patented in-process lubrication and twin screw expander.

 

 

The unit can use waste heat generated by most manufacturing processes, power generation & heating systems. This larger unit produces power from 35-65kWe.

 

 

As the Power+ Generator runs from waste heat you can generate electricity at no cost. Due to this the unit requires little upkeep and does not need it's own fuel source. When choosing ElectraTherm you are also gaining access to the CHP uplift tariff. 

 

Small Outputs

The second ORC Novalux provides is ideal for smaller outputs, it produces energy at a scale of 10-1 and is extremely cost effective when paired with our waste wood biomass boiler.

 

 

Novalux can retrofit the machine on to biomass boilers upwards of 100kWth to produce 10kWe. The unit is ideal for those already on the biomass tariff wanting to gain access to the CHP uplift. Much like our bigger ORC it turns excess heat in to power with no extra fuel cost and can be applied to the same technologies.

 

 

Alike to all of our ORC units, the system requires little maintenance.
