Improved genset efficiency reduces fuel consumption

Our ETC system recovers waste energy from genset exhaust gas, and converts it to useful electrical power, improving the overall efficiency of the genset. This will allow you to generate the same power output using less fuel and producing fewer carbon emissions. In addition, it can help you reach emissions standards and contractual fuel targets.

With over 800 systems sold worldwide we have saved millions of litres of fuel and reduced carbon emissions by over 300,000 tonnes. Typically, we achieve a fuel consumption reduction of 4-7%, although this does vary depending on engine type, size, fuel, age, condition and operating environment.

Engine output improvements on gas engines

Below, we have presented the engine output improvements in kWe for several commonly used gas engines, including CAT G3520C, CAT 3516, GE J320 – C21 and Cummins QSK60:

Specific fuel consumption improvements for diesel engines

The graph below shows how the application of ETC technology on a range of commonly used engines reduces specific fuel consumption (SFC), compared to the base model performance. This includes Cummins KTA50 G3 and QSK78, CAT 3516 and MTU 16V4000.
