How to transform waste heat in a more efficient way? The ORCAN ePack Hybrid is based on the ORC process (Organic Rankine Cycle), a thermodynamic cycle that recovers CO₂-free electricity directly at the customer’s site like industry, traffic or biogas plants. The design challenge was to combine the large surfaces for the integrated condensers with the compact size of the unit. Installation and maintenance are simplified by a reduced structure which allows access to all inner components within minutes. The clear shape and the color scheme underline the brand identity and create a positive vision of an environmentally friendly power source.
