Manufacturer Installs 10 ORC "Machines" to Municipal District Heating System in Europe

Manufacturer Installs 10 ORC "Machines" to Municipal District Heating System in Europe | Things for you | Scoop.it

RENO, NV--(Marketwired - Aug 7, 2014) - ElectraTherm, a leader in distributed heat to power generation, commissioned 10 Green Machine 4400s in Levice, Slovakia in June 2014.

Duane Tilden's curator insight, August 26, 2014 9:22 AM

>"[...]The 10-machine installation utilizes the waste heat from two Rolls Royce gas turbines through a combined cycle. Exhaust from the turbines goes through a heat recovery steam generator, and lower temperature exhaust gas that cannot be utilized produces hot water to meet demand for heating on the municipality's district heating system. The remaining heat runs through ElectraTherm's Green Machines to generate clean energy and attain attractive feed-in-tariff incentives. Hot water enters the Green Machine at between 77-116°C (170-240°F), where it heats a working fluid into pressurized vapor, using Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) and proprietary technologies. As the vapor expands, it drives ElectraTherm's patented twin screw power block, which spins an electric generator and produces emission free power. Run in parallel, the Green Machines in Levice generate approximately 500 kWe. While combined cycle gas turbines are widely used throughout Europe for power generation and district heating, this is the first application of its kind to utilize ElectraTherm's ORC technology for the lower temperature waste heat. The Green Machines help the site reach maximum efficiency levels through heat that would otherwise go to waste. ElectraTherm's Green Machine generates power from waste heat on applications such as internal combustion engines, biomass, geothermal/co-produced fluids and solar thermal. ElectraTherm's product line includes units with 35, 65 and 110 kW outputs and offers stand alone or packaged solutions.

It is interesting to note that the only reference to work is helping others. I found the isolation in teaching worked against helping the other adults in the building and I found it was not always appreciated. Helping the students and their families worked for many years.

Renewable Geothermal Power Expands in Nevada

Geothermal energy is a growing industry, with more plants going into Nevada's mostly untapped resource.

Duane Tilden's curator insight, August 25, 2014 9:11 AM

Geothermal energy is a growing type of clean energy, and nowhere is that more true than in Nevada. Ormat Technologies has built a geothermal plant every year since 2005.  [...]

"This is what the future is going to bring," Gawell said. "You will see more and more of this in years ahead and it is already a boom for Reno."

The Steamboat Complex is a binary plant that takes hot water from deep underground, to produce power.

"We convert the heat that's in the fluid to electrical energy," Bob Sullivan, Senior Vice President of Ormat Technologies said. "Then we put all the fluids back into the ground where it gets reheated. So, it's a sustainable cycle."  [...]

Along with electricity, these facilities create economic development, putting hundreds of people to work, drilling wells and building the plants.   About 500 people have permanent jobs with Ormat, in the United States.  Another 500 people work for the company around the world.

"It's a job engine," Sullivan said. "It takes a lot of maintenance. It takes a lot of people. It takes a lot of workers, a lot of subcontractors to keep one of these facilities running."

While the cost of fossil fuels goes up and down, geothermal stays steady. The fuel cost is upfront, in the form of drilling wells. Gawell says what is lost in capital and labor costs is saved in fuel costs. [...]"<
