Low Cost Waste Heat to Power Equipment Package Available


The Green Machine 4011-F comes fully-packaged with a low cost waste heat to power ORC in the market.

Gulf Coast Green Energy (GCGE), a leader in distributed power generation from waste heat, announces a 35 kWe low cost Green Machine waste heat to power (WHP) Generator, the ElectraTherm 4011-F, as a turnkey Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC)packaged solution. The 4011-F is ElectraTherm’s lowest output machine at 35 kWe, ideal for smaller heat sources with low temperature waste heat (i.e. 500kW stationary engine). The machine marks ElectraTherm’s first plug-and-play ORC package and requires less installation time and commissioning, and has the lowest market costs for commercial WHP technology of its kind.

ElectraTherm’s 4011-F fully-integrated package includes the following:Green Machine 4011F

  • Green Machine 4011-F at 35kWe, available in both 50 & 60 Hz
  • Liquid loop radiator
  • Working fluid
  • Installation and commissioning
  • Hot water bypass (if required)

Product details are available here. The Green Machine 4011-F generates fuel-free, emission-free electricity utilizing waste heat between 77-116°C (170-240°F) and flow rates between 3.2-12.6 I/s (50- 200 GPM) to produce up to 35kWe.

“ElectraTherm developed the 4011-F package based on requests from our customers for a turnkey solution that requires nothing more than connecting hot water to the ORC, and connection to the grid,”said Loy Sneary, GCGE’s CEO. “Our simple installation and maintenance requirements are even easier to achieve with this model and our customers reap the benefits with lower installation costs and a very attractive return on investment.”

The Green Machine 4011-F joins ElectraTherm’s initial Series 4000 product, the Green Machine 4010,which offers outputs up to 65kWe, and the recently announced Green Machine 4020, the highest output ORC at up to 1l0kWe.

ElectraTherm’s heat to power generators lead the market for commercialized small-scale ORC technology. The Green Machine fleet has accumulated more than 160,000 hours run time at 97 availability, with 26 machines installed and 25 in process. Green Machines utilize waste heat on applications such as internal combustion engines, biomass/biogas, boilers/process heat, geothermal/co-
produced fluids and solar thermal.

About GCGE

GCGE is the first ElectraTherm distributor and serves the Gulf Coast states of the United States as well as other locations in the U.S. and Caribbean. GCGE placed the first Green Machine for  commercial application at the Facilities Department at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas in 2008. Since then, GCGE and ElectraTherm have pioneered the ICE application for the technology and GCGE installed the first ICE application on a natural gas compressor ICE in 2011. GCGE and ElectraTherm also were the first to generate power from hot “produced water” from an oil well, and we were the first to apply the technology to a solar thermal array.
