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.

Absolutely reliable

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.

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.
