ORGANIC RANKINE CYCLE
Turboden clean energy ahead
Turboden is an Italian firm and a global leader in the design, manufacture and maintenance of Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) systems, highly suitable for distributed generation, that generate electric and thermal power exploiting multiple sources, such as renewables (biomass, geothermal energy, solar energy), traditional fuels and waste heat from industrial processes, waste incinerators, engines or gas turbines.

BIOMASS Turboden ORC plants produce heat and electricity from different kinds of biomass with high efficiency and user friendly operation. The generated power ranges between 200 kW and 20 MW electric per single turbine.
GEOTHERMAL The ORC technology is particularly suitable for the exploitation of medium-to-low enthalpy sources. It is a cost-effective solution with power outputs reaching up to 40 MWe per single generator for sources with water temperature of 100°C to 200°C or higher.
WASTE HEAT RECOVERY Turboden ORC units can produce electricity by recovering heat from industrial processes and in combined cycles with reciprocating engines and gas turbines. The power of Turboden turbo generators in this application generally ranges between 200 kW and 20 MW electric per single shaft.
OIL & GAS Turboden ORC units allow to produce useful power (up to 20 MW per single turbine) by recovering waste heat from the exhaust gas of gas turbines/reciprocating engines or from the hot streams that can be found in the O&G downstream, midstream and upstream sectors. ORC technology finds its natural application in natural gas compression stations, but also in the exploitation of flare gas, hot water from exhausted oil wells, and refinery hot streams.
WASTE TO ENERGY Turboden ORC technology can be profitably and efficiently used to produce electric energy from waste to energy recovery processes. The power of Turboden turbo generators in this application ranges from 200 kW to 20 MW electric per single turbine.
CONCENTRATED SOLAR POWER Turboden units allow to convert the heat collected by solar collectors into electricity through an efficient thermodynamic cycle. Concentrated Solar Power systems with the ORC technology of Turboden can be cost-effective in the range between 200 kW and 20 MW electric.
STEAM & POWER Steam & Power (ST&P) ORC is a new technological solution for Combined Heat & Power (CHP) generation. It allows the production of electricity and a valuable high temperature heat carrier, such as steam, directly exploitable in manufacturing processes.
Waste Heat Recovery System in a gas compressor station
Turboden provides a 5.5 MWe ORC power plant in Uzbekistan to recover waste heat from 1 GE LM 2500 gas turbine in Shurtan gas compressor station operated by SC “Uzneftegazdobycha”. The ORC unit will cover the compressor station captive consumption and will operate in island mode. Read the case history.
