5 May 2010– Turboden, a unit of Pratt & Whitney Power Systems that designs organic rankine cycle (ORC) power generation systems, sold a modular ORC unit in Canada.
Waste heat from the turbine exhaust gas is recovered and transformed into electrical energy by an ORC turbogenerator with a capacity of 1 MW of electrical energy.
The project will be managed by Innovative Steam Technologies and is expected to begin in late 2010 at a TransGas Ltd. Gas Compressor Station.
The ORC turbogenerator is one of the first Turboden units with a heat recovery system downstream of a gas turbine. Turboden has four ORC units currently in operation in Europe.
