Turboden ORC turbogenerator to be installed in Malaysia
29 May 2017
Turboden, a group company of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and leader in Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbogenerators, provides an ORC unit to Invest Energy, a growing international energy company, located in Malaysia.
Invest Energy will build, own, and operate (BOO model) the ORC power plant at Safran factory: the ORC will be recovering waste heat from the existing CVI furnace (Chemical Vapour Infiltration) by mean of an intermediate thermal oil heat exchanger. ORC generator capacity is 2100 kWe.
The energy produced by the ORC will be injected into the factory grid thus reducing the dependency of Safran from the national electricity supply.
This is the first Turboden plant in Malaysia, confirming that the solution proposed perfectly fits the needs of the Asian market: other Turboden units are installed or under construction in Asia (one in Singapore, three in Japan, one The Philippines) and many other projects are going to be implemented (biomass, geothermal, heat recovery).
Turboden has installed 345 plants as of today and more than 500 MWe.
