ElectraTherm to demonstrate Green Machine technology at California Navy facility
ElectraTherm, a US-based renewable energy company, is set to demonstrate its Green Machine Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology at the Navy's Mobile Utilities Support Equipment (MUSE) facility in Port Hueneme, California.
During the one-year demonstration project, ElectraTherm's ORC will be completely integrated with a Cummins KTA50 1.3MW internal combustion engine (ICE) and packaged in a 40-ft shipping container for on-site power generation.
This integrated solution is expected to boost engine efficiency up to 8% and offset radiator parasitic loads for a total efficiency gain of 10% and will generate fuel-free, emission-free power from waste heat at remote military installations.
Using low-temperature waste heat (170-240°F), ElectraTherm's Green Machine will generate additional power and increase overall system efficiency.
MUSE will showcase this technology for potential use at remote military sites where 500kW-2MW engines are an essential source of power for military operations.
