ETC 1000 is suited to gas and diesel-fuelled gensets in the 600kW-1100kW range as a single system and 1100kW-2000kW gensets as a twin system.
The ETC 1000
Electric Turbo Compounding (ETC) delivers a step change in the efficiency of reciprocating engines.
The ETC 1000 is Bowman’s latest generation ETC product, it builds on our proven technology platform and offers the same performance benefits but, with a simpler and more compact installation and, at a lower cost. Initial testing of the ETC 1000 is now complete and there are three launch customers undergoing trials of the technology. View the video below to find out more:

Key Benefits of the ETC 1000
• 110kW maximum output
• Axial flow, horizontal axis machine architecture
• Water cooled, oil lubricated – requirements set to enable use of host engine circuits to eliminate ancillary systems
• Integrated mechanical lock – engine can continue to run in the event of ETC fault without a bypass
• 30,000hr overhaul period (bearing change)
• Improved field maintainability
• Integrated ‘black stop’ tolerance
• Automatic speed tuning
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
