Industrial processes going digital

Best practices from EU-funded projects. Learning from the experience of industries in adapting to the digital transition: RETROFEED, SHIP2FAIR, SOWHAT & ECOFACT projects.   A recent webinar shows once more how important industry is if we are to meet our long-term climate and energy objectives. In the recovery plans for the soon-to-be post-Covid-19 era, the transition towards digitisation in…

Rank Organic Rankine Cycle Technology with applications in Heat Recovery solution

In a project involving ACCIONA and KEROS CERAMICA, RANK has worked with SWEP to implement a heat recovery solution for electricity power generation. ORC RANK equipment capacities range from 2 to 100 kWe. The activation range for the low-temperature equipment starts at just 85 °C.SWEP's heat exchangers are installed as economizers, evaporators and…

Shining a light on Tomatoes

Royal Pride Holland is using the J624 GS engines to power the greenhouse's new cogeneration plant. Some of the power generated is used for lighting for the tomatoes, but most is supplied to the public power grid. Because the waste heat from the engines can be used at very low temperatures, and the CO2 in its exhaust gas can also be used, the…
