Calnetix Technologies to Present Marine Organic Rankine Cycle Power Module for Shipboard Steam Heat Recovery at ASME Conference

June 21, 2017

CERRITOS, Calif. – June 20, 2017 – Calnetix Technologies will present an overview of its marine Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) power module technology at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Turbo Conference and Expo this month.

Chris Sellers, Controls and Systems Engineer for Calentix, will give a paper entitled, “Development of 350 kW Marine Organic Rankine Power Module for Ship Waste Steam.” Sellers co-authored the paper with Larry Hawkins, Director of Technology, Magnetic Bearings.

The paper focuses on a marine-based ORC waste heat recovery system designed to produce 350 kW of electric power from ship steam. The additional power will be used to offset the fuel demand from onboard diesel generators, resulting in a significant fuel savings as well as lowered emissions.

The ASME Turbo Expo will be held June 26-29 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Now in its 62nd year, the technical conference brings together experts from around the world to share the latest in turbine technology, research, development and application in the areas of gas turbines, steam turbines, wind turbines, fans and blowers, ORC and supercritical CO2.

Visitors are invited to learn more about Calnetix ORC heat recovery technology at Booth 901.
