Combined heat and power (CHP) ORC unit with thermal output of 120 kW in containerized configuration

Project ID: TK01020061
Funding provider: Technology Agency of the Czech Republic
Investigator at UCEEB: Ing. Zbyněk Zelený
Project duration: 1. 7. 2018 – 31. 12. 2020
Partners: Ing. Miroslav Šamata, BHC Jílové s.r.o.

Goal of this project is development, construction and testing of woodchip fired cogeneration ORC unit with nominal thermal output of 120 kW, in containerized configuration and electrical output around 5 kW. Advantages of this prototype will be (except for cogeneration itself) possibility for outdoor installation (as it is in a container) of the unit and ability to utilize lower quality fuel. Deliverables will be 2 industrial templates created in combination of professional fields of both co-applicants. Roughly in the mid of the project will be a prototype of the unit finished and there will follow testing and optimization. Following a successful solution of the project there will be developed a technology with large market potential as is confirmed by guarantying subjects.

The project is subsidised by TAČR, programme Théta.
