It is a modern imperative to reduce waste and to produce clean energy.

Orcan Energy AG responded to this need and, thanks to its experience and know-how, ThermoKey has been involved with Orcan Energy in different projects in the industrial and power generation sectors.

The Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) is a technology that allows to safely produce CO2-free electricity regardless of the type of waste heat source. It makes no difference what type of engine or turbine the waste heat comes from or whether the waste heat is available in the form of exhaust gas, engine cooling water, thermal oil or steam..

Orcan Energy AG Germany

Founded in 2008 in Munich, Orcan Energy offers simple and flexible second-generation ORC solutions turning unused energy from engines and industrial facilities into valuable electricity.

The Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) is a key technology to achieve the internationally shared goal of increasing energy efficiency: thanks to a system based on a closed-cycle thermodynamic cycle, it allows to recover a part of the waste heat produced by industrial processes by converting it into electricity, which is then immediately reused for the same production site.

The advantages of using ORC technology are many: companies can save money while improving their carbon footprint at the same time. They benefit from lower energy costs and they make a valuable contribution to protecting the environment, as they reduce their CO2 emissions and increase efficiency by recycling energy that would otherwise go wasted.

Established as a spin-off from the Technical University of Munich, Orcan Energy has become a leading European CleanTech company for energy solutions based on ORC technology and just last January it ranked as the second most used supplier of waste heat solutions worldwide.

ThermoKey shares with Orcan Energy the same commitment to sustainability and the strong desire to contribute to a better world.

We are proud to have been chosen as a partner for the production of the condensing part in the Efficiency Pack dedicated to the Industry & Power markets.

ThermoKey represents a unique position on the market: on the one hand it is a manufacturer of coils (tube&fin and microchannel) for the main European Chiller manufacturers, on the other, for more than 30 years it has been a manufacturer of aircooled units (DryCoolers, Remote condensers and Unit Coolers).

We are therefore able to make the most out of microchannel technology, which means very low use of refrigerant and (the production of) extremely efficient aircooled units.
