Always when heat is produced decentralized from the combustion of biomass, theoretically electrical power can be supplied as "by-product". Our ECOCAL ORC-units offer the ideal solution to supply power in a range between 20 and 3.000 kW per unit from biomass. Remotely, efficient, in combined heat and power mode and ideally suited for partload.

Biomass is burned at temperatures exceeding 800°C. From a thermodynamic point of view this temperature is perfectly suited for the production of electricity. However a lot of times the combustion is only used for supplying warm water for heating purposes. To fill this gap between available temperature level and power production capabiliteis, our ECOCAL ORC-units offer the ideal addition to produce power from biomass.
With our low temperature ORC-units we can offer the ideal solution for when only warm water is available for power generation. Typical applications would be small waste firings or heating grids that have a surplus of thermal energy available. With thermal power inputs of only around 300 kW up to 5.000 kW per single unit, these machines are the ideal addition to any of the above mentioned applications.
When the production of heat and power in parallel is needed, we can offer our turbine based high temperature ORC-units for power ranges between 150 and 3.000 kW. These machines operating on pressurized water or thermal oil can supply hot water with temperatures higher than 120°C for heating or process purposes. At the same time our ECOCAL high temperature ORC-units can operate with efficiencies exceeding 20%.
Typical applications where our ECOCAL ORC-units can be used are:
- Prodution of district heat
- MDF plants supplying hot thermal oil and hot water for drying processes
- Saw mills using hot water for drying
- District heating grids with surplus thermal energy
- Heat production for green houses
- Production of cold
