New Commissionings and Sales in UK Biomass Market Break Sales Records

Reno, Nevada – ElectraTherm, a leader in distributed, waste heat to power generation, commissioned six Power+ Generators™ in the United Kingdom in 2016, and has 10 machines scheduled for commissioning in the next three months. The Power+ utilizes various forms of biomass, from woodchips to chicken manure, to generate emission-free electricity and increase onsite efficiency for increased revenue.

ElectraTherm utilizes Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) and proprietary technologies to generate power from low temperature heat ranging from 77-122°C. At each biomass site, woodchips or poultry manure are used as a fuel source to fire a biomass boiler producing useful thermal heat. The heat is already being used to dry biomass or heat buildings, and now the hot water is utilized as fuel for the Power+ Generator. The clean electricity produced is sold back to the utility at an incentivized rate. The addition of the Power+ can allow each site to act as a CHP system, producing both heat and power.

“ElectraTherm’s ORC technology is robust and proven, not just with our installations in the UK, but with their track record of more than 50 machines around the world,” said Mick Jones, Project Manager for Woodtek Energy, one of ElectraTherm’s UK distributors. “The clean energy, the increased efficiency, and the incentives make adding ElectraTherm’s ORC to our biomass sites an obvious choice.”

ElectraTherm’s Power+ Generators utilize waste heat on applications such as internal combustion engines, biomass, flare gas (at oil & gas wells, wastewater treatment plants and landfills) and geothermal/co-produced fluids. ElectraTherm’s Power+ fleet recently surpassed 650,000 hours of runtime. A list of reference sites is currently available on the website.

In January 2017, ElectraTherm announced its acquisition by BITZER, the world’s largest independent manufacturer of refrigeration compressors. With its distributors and manufacturing sites for reciprocating, screw and scroll compressors as well as pressure vessels, BITZER is represented all over the globe.
