Energent licenses the Variable Phase Turbine technology to Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. for waste heat recovery power systems and geothermal power systems.
Under the license, MES has exclusive, worldwide rights for shipboard waste heat recovery. Energent also granted MES exclusive rights for land based geothermal and waste heat recovery in Japan....read more »
Energent designed a waste heat recovery power system and the control logic for a ship engine in Japan. The heat source for the power system is hot air from an engine compressor on the engine. The engine itself is a main drive engine for cargo container ships. The first photo illustrates the engine itself which is located in the Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (“MES”) factory in Tamano Japan. The engine generates 7500kW of shaft power. The power generated from heat recovery is 200 kW. The turbine generator is shown in photo 6. During operation the turbine was smooth and controllable and provided the basis for MES to enter a licensing agreement for this technology. Read the full article »
Energent provided a design of waste heat power recovery system and a variable phase turbine to generate power from an incinerator that burns waste chemicals in Japan. The unit is a unique design - a hermetic turbine and generator assembly. The working fluid cools the generator and lubricates the bearings so no rotating shaft seals are required. The unit has been operated successfully generating 100 kW from the very low temperature waste heat, 160 degrees Fahrenheit. When the incinerator is operating at full capacity, the unit will generate 175 kw. This unit is in northern Japan in an area decimated by the tsunami and earth quake where additional sources of energy are needed. It is contributing to that requirement. Read the full article »
Energent operates an experimental amine power recovery unit that separates CO2 from amine and breaks down foam.
This photograph shows an experimental power recovery unit that recovers power form the let down of amine pressure in gas cleaning applications. The unit generates power and separates the CO2 from the amine solution for recycling. The unit has been operated now and power generation demonstrated as well as separation.

Energent recently sold four nanosteam turbines (shown in the photo), for biomass power production in Italy. These units will produce up to 100 kW from steam generated by burning biomass products. After producing power form the steam, the low pressure steam is used to power an organic Rankine cycle system to complete the power production. The addition of the nanosteam topping turbine nearly doubles the power output from the organic Rankine cycle power plant if it were installed by itself.
