Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) Technology
[ Renewable energy power plant ]

Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology can generate electric power efficiently by heat sources of the the middle low temperature.
Turboden S.p.A. who has superior Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology, became an MHI group company in 2013. ORC technology is similar to a traditional steam turbine, but with a single, important difference. Instead of using water vapor, the ORC system vaporizes a high-molecular-mass organic fluid, resulting in excellent electric performance and several key advantages: slower turbine rotation, lower pressure and no erosion of metallic parts and blades. The ORC unit is preassembled onto one or more skids and can be easily transported. Turboden produces ORC generators, for the combined generation of electric power and heat, employing renewable resources and heat recovery from industrial processes, engines and gas turbines, particularly well-suited for distributed generation.
