For any power generation project, maximising output efficiency is key to guaranteeing the best possible return on investment. While there are numerous solutions available for site managers to improve their outputs, understanding the complex minefield of alternatives is key to selecting the best solution for your CHP engine.
Alongside offering unparalleled consultancy to ensure optimum performance from the outset, we pride ourselves on delivering future-proof solutions to reduce emissions and achieve efficiency uplifts. From open-protocol control panels, to next-generation Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) systems, our capabilities stretch far beyond installing and commissioning gas engines.
Through an exclusive agreement with Bowman Power Group, for example, we offer a comprehensive range of Electric Turbo Compounding (ETC) products, achieving an average c.3% increase in output efficiency. Our consultants can provide independent site audits to provide external insight into the performance of your set-up, and advise a variety of improvement options, if required.

Electric Turbo Compounding
ETC products make gas and diesel-powered gensets work more cleanly and effectively by recovering waste energy from the exhaust to improve power density and fuel efficiency.
The technology is equally suited to new-build and retrofit applications, for engines in the 150kW-2MW range. By integrating ETC technology with your engines, it’s possible to achieve enhanced power generation capacity efficiencies.
Organic Rankine Cycle
ORC technology harnesses excess heat from your CHP engine and turns it into power. The units capture excess heat and use it in a process of evaporation. As a thermal oil is pumped through at high pressure, it begins to boil and turns into gas.
The gas flows through an expander, which causes a generator to spin and produce power. The gas is then cooled back into its liquid form to begin the process again.
Open-protocol control panels
By replacing proprietary control systems with open protocol alternatives, your CHP engine can interoperate without the need for a proprietary interface or gateway. This allows engineers to easily control each setup without the need for specialist support and provides immediate digital access.
The added benefit of internet connectivity means engineers can even control engines from an off-site location, which further reduces costs and dramatically improves uptime.
