Orcan Energy

No one can afford to waste energy.

Our simple and flexible products convert unused energy from engines and industrial facilities into clean electricity that you can use right away. Without any extra investment or extra work. Now.

Save costs

As resources become ever scarcer, energy is becoming an increasingly valuable commodity. Harness your unused energy now and convert it into clean electricity. You will also benefit from lower energy costs and can make a valuable contribution to protecting the environment.

Reduce CO2 emissions

We have a duty to our children and grandchildren to protect our planet and find alternative ways to cover our immense energy needs. But instead, we are still wasting our resources. In industry, for example, up to 50 percent of input energy is lost as waste heat. Orcan Energy provides simple and flexible second-generation ORC solutions that turn this waste heat into valuable electricity.

Increase efficiency

We improve what is already there. Our simple products recycle energy that previously went to waste, without affecting the combustion engine. From industry and shipping to construction and transport, Orcan Energy offers the perfect combination of economy and ecology.

Join us on our journey from the docks to the sea: follow the integration of the first marine efficiency PACKs–the efficiency upgrade for vessels that uses waste heat. The Veerle, an inland push boat owned by the Dutch shipping company Ruijven, is the first inland waterway vessel that is outfitted with efficiency PACKs.

Applications

Our second-generation ORC solutions take waste heat from various processes and applications and turn it into clean electricity. They are used above all in the industrial, marine and power generation sectors where they can make the greatest contribution to a better world.

Industry

Our products significantly increase energy efficiency in industrial processes. They help slash carbon dioxide emissions and reduce electricity costs to an astonishingly low level. Find out more.

Marine

Our efficiency PACKs reduce fuel consumption on ships by six to nine percent and ensure a significantly better Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI). Harmful emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, sulfur oxide and soot particles are substantially reduced.

Power
generation

Our efficiency PACKs use hot engine exhaust gases and cooling water to generate a significant amount of extra electricity. They require little maintenance and work fully independently. Fuel consumption is also considerably reduced.

Products

Efficient, flexible and cost effective. Our patented efficiency PACKs let you generate your own zero-carbon electricity from the unused energy produced by your combustion engines. Featuring a lean circulation structure, standardized and proven industrial components, and intelligent control algorithms, they ensure that the waste heat generated in your processes is harnessed efficiently. Wherever you are in the world.

We offer attractive second-generation ORC solutions tailored to your precise requirements.

eP 20.30
eP 05.15

Our most popular model has been in use in more than 40 installations for over six years. 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.

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.
