Improved genset efficiency reduces fuel consumption

The ETC system recovers waste energy from the genset exhaust gas, and converts it to useful electrical power, improving the overall efficiency of the genset. Over 800 systems sold worldwide are saving millions of litres of fuel and reducing carbon emissions, as you can see above.

The system typically delivers a fuel consumption reduction, and CO2 savings 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:
