NEW HFC ORC SYSTEM PROJECT TO PRODUCE ENERGY FROM MARINE ENGINES JACKET WATER

NEW HFC ORC SYSTEM PROJECT TO PRODUCE ENERGY FROM MARINE ENGINES JACKET WATER

04.10.2014

A HFC-245fa Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC)  system has been developed to recover heat from marine engines jacket water to convert it to electricity for shipboard consumption.

The system can use heat from a source with temperatures as low as 80°C, unlike other heat recovery systems that require much higher temperatures, to produce up to 125 kW electricity per unit.

The high-speed turbine expander and high-efficiency permanent-magnet generator are contained in a single hermetically sealed housing, and equipped with friction-free magnetic bearings, requiring no lubrication or maintenance.
