ETC 1000

More cost-effective, reliable and efficient than ever. Optimised for gensets from 600kW-2,000kW, or on larger engines and wastegates from 8,000kW - 20,000kW.

Introducing ETC 1000

ETC 1000 represents the pinnacle of our Electric Turbo Compounding (ETC) technology, delivering a drastic step change in the efficiency of reciprocating engines.

Thanks to 15 years of research and development in engine efficiency; and 20 million field hours of operation across 800 systems, we have made a significant leap with ETC 1000. It offers the same performance benefits as our other systems but, with a simpler and more compact installation and, at a lower cost. This helps increase your return on investment and reduce cost per kWh.

ETC 1000 is the ideal solution to reduce fuel consumption, increase power output and reduce engine emissions.

Recommended by OEMs

ETC 1000 systemWe’ve worked closely with engine and genset original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to ensure maximum efficiency and compatibility. Whether you have an existing engine, or are looking to purchase a new engine, ETC 1000 can provide an efficiency uplift.

Our technology is already in use worldwide across utilities, power generation and renewables sectors. This includes usage on Cummins KTA50 (diesel) and QSK60 (gas); Jenbacher J320 (gas); and CAT 3516LE (gas) engines. Trials are underway in further industries across Jenbacher J320 (gas), CAT 3516 (gas), MTU4000 (diesel) and Cummins QSK78 (diesel) engines, with further trials being planned.

It is suited to gas and diesel-fuelled open and containerised gensets in the 600kW-1100kW range as a single system and 1100kW-2000kW gensets as a twin system.

For larger engines, and wastegate applications, we can also provide a solution to suit your requirements, up to 8,000kW+ using a single system and 20,000kW+ for a twin system.
