ULN-Series ORC Modules
Designed for a long life at sea


The ULN-Series low-temperature Organic Rankine Cycle modules by Zuccato Energia have been expressly designed for power generation from heat recovery in naval environments, where they can be factory-installed or retrofitted in place of one or more gensets. They are designed to run efficiently using low-temperature heat - the lowest of the whole Zuccato Energia range of ORC power generation modules - and make it possible to exploit heat recovered from sources that were until now considered unusable, such as the engine oil cooling circuit. Moreover, the low condensation temperatures made possible by the naval environment give them a very respectable efficiency rating for their power range.
