ORC Technology

Capstone Clean Cycle 125 kW

Capstone Clean Cycle is a generator that uses waste heat to produce electricity. The generator uses the Organic Rankin Cycle (ORC). It captures the residual heat from a whole range of sources. It can transfer excessive heat to clean green power, while increasing the overall efficiency of the system. It contains advanced power electronics and a sophisticated integrated power module, a turbine, and a single shaft generator.

The system works without oil, and with low demands on maintenance. Thanks to the magnetic bearing and ecological coolant, it has no impact on the ozone layer. It achieves a highly efficient transformation of residual heat energy to electric power, and it is environmentally friendly.

In cooperation with our subsidiary, GGC Energy, we provide plug-and-go systems for our clients from project preparation through delivery and installation of the technology, to service and maintenance of the delivered equipment. Based on the entered input gas requirements, we are able to propose an individual solution.

The compact, modular system includes

  • semiconductor power electronics designed for a change of the high-frequency generator output into power without the need to use expensive condensers, i.e. “utility friendly”
  • magnetic bearings: no lubricant and low maintenance demands, resulting in minimum downtime
  • integrated power module: high-speed turbine with a highly efficient alternator, closed in a single small appliance with a single moving part
  • environmental responsibility: safe for ozone, harmless coolant
