Solutions – Applications


Our second-generation ORC solutions are true multi-talents and are successfully used in a wide range of industrial sectors. With a power range from 50 kWel,net to 200 kWel,net, they reliably and safely produce clean electricity regardless of the type of waste heat source. It makes no difference whether the waste heat is used in the form of exhaust gases, exhaust air, exhaust steam or process water. Typical waste heat sources include furnaces in the cement, zinc, metal or glass industries as well as thermal afterburners in the automotive, construction or wood processing industries and in refineries.

Save costs

With our second-generation ORC solutions, you fully utilize your resources and significantly increase the energy efficiency of your industrial processes - with lower energy costs in your company. In addition, you increase the competitiveness of your company: because our ORCs, the efficiency PACKs, are a suitable means of obtaining ISO 50001 certification.

Proven reliability

The innovative and compact design, our technical know-how and experience after a runtime of over three million operating hours in Europe alone, make our efficiency PACKs particularly uncomplicated companions. Once installed, they operate reliably and completely autonomously without interfering with existing processes. At the same time, they are so flexible that they always adapt to the individual situation. They are capable of partial load and at the same time fully dynamic. This means that electricity is reliably generated even if your industrial plant is not running at full load, waste heat is already being partially utilized or is being generated in a time-fluctuating manner.


With our second-generation ORC solutions, you fully exploit the energy potential of your plant. Surplus heat is converted into CO2-free electricity in a highly efficient manner. This saves you money and improves your company's carbon footprint at the same time.

Flexible financing offers

Take advantage of our attractive financing offers when purchasing an Orcan Energy ORC solution. Whether purchase, house bank financing or lease. We will find the best option for you. For exports of our ORCs abroad, additional security is available through export credit guarantees from the German government.

OC 300.800

With our ORCAN cooler we offer a complete new category of cooling solutions for engines and industrial processes. As the only dry-cooler in the world, it does not require any external power, so you can significantly optimize your company`s energy-intensive cooling processes. The ORCAN cooler can be used for cooling temperatures above 65 degrees Celsius, its power range starts at 300 kW thermal and reaches up to several MW.


Inside the efficiency PACK, an ORC-Cycle is running: The evaporator transfers the heat into the efficiency PACK. Thereby, the pressurized working fluid is heated and then routed to the expansion machine. The vaporized working fluid drives the expansion machine and thereby also the generator producing electricity. The working fluid is condensed in the condenser, which releases residual heat into the ambient air. The now again liquid working fluid is brought to high pressure in the pump. This closes the cycle and it starts again.

Simple Integration

Due to the plug and play approach and the flexibility of the modules, they can be easily integrated, for example on existing steam or thermal oil circuits or directly into the exhaust gas:
