Organic Rankine Cycle to Boost the Gas Transportation Process
14 July 2021
A 28-MWe Organic Rankine Cycle system coupled to electric motor-driven compressor trains working in island mode will increase capacity at Egypt’s Dahshour compressor station without additional fuel consumption.
Industrial sectors are looking for sustainable solutions to reduce their carbon footprint while maintaining high competitiveness. Implementation of organic Rankine cycle (ORC) technology, which turns waste heat into useful power, represents a clever way to reach both targets, helping hard-to-abate industries undertake the path toward decarbonization.
Thanks to its efficiency and flexibility, ORC technology has been used widely to generate clean energy and enhance the sustainability in industries such as biomass, geothermal, waste heat recovery, solar power, and waste-to-energy. Now, ORC technology is ready to boost the energy transition within the oil and gas industry.
