Our proven and reliable Electric Turbo Compounding (ETC) technology delivers a step change in the efficiency of gas and diesel-fuelled reciprocating engines, by recovering waste heat energy from the engine exhaust, and converting it to free, useful power.
The ETC system enables genset end-users to maintain the same power output using less fuel and producing fewer CO2 emissions, or to produce additional power with improved fuel efficiency.
Our ETC technology has been developed for the power generation sector.
The system is used by engine and generator set (genset) OEMs, power rental providers and independent power producers (IPPs), to increase competitive advantage and add value to genset end-users.
Our range of ETC products is suitable for new build or retrofit applications on gas and diesel-fuelled gensets in the 200kW – 2MW range. We also have products for larger engines which feature a waste gate. Find out how the technology works, and take a look at our applications for open gensets (i.e. in a power plant) and containerised gensets (as commonly used by power rental providers).
What is ETC?
Electric Turbo Compounding (ETC) technology is our solution to the challenge of improving energy efficiency for the stationary power generation industry
ETC for open gensets
The ETC system is suitable for new build or retrofit application for gas and diesel-fuelled open generator sets, improving overall energy efficiency and power density
ETC for containerised gensets
The ETC system is equally suited for integration with containerised gensets, improving the efficiency of rental units
We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions about our ETC systems, from performance and reliability, to installation, operation and maintenance
