Solutions – Applications
Our second-generation ORC solutions are also used successfully in shipping. Against a backdrop of constantly rising energy prices and strict emission limits, they offer owners an outstanding option for running their ship in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way.
Orcan Energy products are suitable for all ship types with engines from 500 kW, regardless of fuel type. Waste heat can be extracted from the engine`s exhaust gases and jacket cooling water, but also from a steam or thermal oil circuit. This can be used as electrical or mechanical energy depending on the power level of the selected Orcan Energy solution.
Our second-generation ORC solutions are highly efficient and increase the power of your ship engines. They can achieve fuel savings of up to nine percent. Our products’ compact and multiple award-winning design makes them a simple and cost-effective way to save energy on board. You can also benefit from state environmental management subsidies for carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides and particulate matter. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Flexible & dynamic
Our ORC solutions can always be adjusted to the individual situation on board. This means they do not affect ship operations or engine power. Our systems are highly dynamic and can operate at partial load, allowing you to reliably boost your engines’ efficiency even with fast load cycles.
We use proven and standardized industrial components to ensure that our ORC products are absolutely reliable. With the support of our partners Air Liquide and E.ON, our products have recorded well over 400,000 operating hours.
All Orcan Energy products are certified by TÜV and are CE compliant.
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.

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.
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.
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.
