Solutions – Applications


Our second-generation ORC solutions are incredibly versatile and are successfully used in a wide range of industrial sectors. With a power range of 5 kWel to 100 kWel, they produce electricity safely and reliably regardless of waste heat source. Waste heat can come from exhaust gases, extracted air, vapor or process water. Typical waste heat sources include furnaces in the steel, glass and ceramics industries, or thermal afterburning systems in the automotive, construction or wood processing sectors.


Our second-generation ORC solutions are highly efficient and significantly increase the energy efficiency of your industrial processes. The compact design and innovative technology make our efficiency PACKs a simple and cost-effective way for you to reduce energy costs in your business.

Users can also benefit from state subsidies, such as those from KfW in Germany (grant of up to 40% CAPEX for your efficiency project). Furthermore, the efficiency PACKs are an easy and low-cost way for you to meet energy efficiency specifications in line with ISO 50001/3.

Flexible & dynamic

Our products do not affect your existing processes. The second-generation ORC solutions can always be adjusted to the respective situation. They can be used at partial load and are highly dynamic. This allows you to reliably generate electricity even when your industrial systems are not running at full load, and when waste heat is already being partially used or generated at different times.

Absolutely reliable

We use proven and standardized industrial components to ensure that our ORC systems are absolutely reliable. As of today, we have recorded over 600,000 operating hours among our customers.

Flexible financing

We offer a range of attractive financing options to help you benefit from our ORC solutions. From purchase and leasing to bank finance, we can find the right option for you.

efficiency PACK

eP 20.30
eP 05.15

Our most popular model has been in use for over six years at our customers. What makes it so popular is its flexibility. It can be deployed in any sector, regardless of the kind or quantity of waste heat. The eP 20.30 helps you slash your energy costs and improve your carbon footprint. It is also incredibly easy to install. Its innovative design means you need neither special housings nor additional equipment. Simply plug and play.

Our eP 05.15 variant can be used for liquid waste heat under 100°C.

efficiency PACKs

eP M 50.100
eP P 50.100

Our eP 50.100 efficiency PACK is suitable for engines of up to two megawatts and is used in the marine and power generation sectors. This efficiency PACK is easy to transport and can be installed or retrofitted in existing systems. The energy generated can also be fed back mechanically into the propulsion driveline, thereby reducing the engine`s fuel consumption.

Container solutions

eN 20.30
eN 50.100

Our second-generation ORC solutions, the efficiency PACKs eN 20.30. and eN 50.100 (from fall 2018), can be installed and operated immediately after production by selected engine manufacturers. When integrated in your engine container, they can be fitted in just a few minutes. They are incredibly efficient and highly flexible.
