During the one-year demonstration project, ElectraTherm’s ORC will be completely integrated with a Cummins KTA50 1.3MW internal combustion engine (ICE) and packaged in a 40-ft shipping container for on-site power generation.

This integrated solution is expected to boost engine efficiency up to 8% and offset radiator parasitic loads for a total efficiency gain of 10% and will generate fuel-free, emission-free power from waste heat at remote military installations.

Using low-temperature waste heat (170-240°F), ElectraTherm’s Green Machine will generate additional power and increase overall system efficiency.

MUSE will showcase this technology for potential use at remote military sites where 500kW-2MW engines are an essential source of power for military operations.
