COGENERATION ELECTRICAL ENERGY AND HEAT AT HIGH EFFICIENCIES VIA THERMAL OIL TRANSFER SYSTEM
SUGIMAT specialise in a number of heat transfer methods, the one unique method when dealing with applications that require electrical generation, is that the heat can be transferred from the biomass plant in the form of thermal oil. Oil retains greater temperatures and thus when we apply an ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) system as the electricity generator, we are able to attain much greater electricity generation as the there is less heat loss and greater tempertures applied to the ORC. Our joint scope of supply covers from the design and manufacturing of the biomass plant, right through to a turnkey project including the supply & delivery of ORC.
The hugely attractive thermal oil powered ORC systems can when used in outright electrical delivery achieve as much as 25% electrical output efficiency, but even more attractive for those who need useable heat, we are able to deliver 18-20% efficiency on electrical and 60-80Deg C heat from the ORC which is eligible for RHI Subsidies for eligible uses.
Customisation of the equipment
Thanks to the multiple choices offered by SUGIMAT, each project is specially designed for each client, so that the equipment is completely tailored to their needs. The ORC equipment can use biomass and non-conventional fuels.
- Heat Recover System (HRS): power generation
- Combined heat and power (CHP): hot water and power generation
- Trigeneration by CHP and absortion machine
