Aurelia Turbines, the producer of the most efficient small gas turbines in the world, has commenced deliveries by shipping its first turbine for commercial use. The Aurelia® A400 turbine was sent to a client from Aurelia’s factory in Lappeenranta, Finland.
The Aurelia® A400 turbine is ideally suited for small-scale combined heat and power (CHP) generation in decentralised grids across the world. It has been designed to meet the needs of small- and medium-sized industrial processes. The turbine has been designed to use hydrogen, biogas and synthetic gas, as well as other renewable and non-standard fuels, providing clients with the flexibility needed to balance changes in renewable energy generation. These 400 kWe turbines may be up to 20% more energy efficient than other microturbines of the same size currently on the market. All Aurelia®A400 variants have been developed to deliver low emissions.
“The goal is to meet the demand for cleaner and more flexible power generation for the future. Producing electricity, heat and, in some cases, cooling locally to the user ensures reliability and minimises losses during transmission and conversion”, says Matti Malkamäki, the CEO of Aurelia Turbines.
Malkamäki adds, ‘The turbines to be delivered in the very near future will be capable of using hydrogen as a fuel; driven by the growing production of renewable energy, there is an increasing demand for novel hydrogen energy solutions around the world’.
Aurelia’s cutting-edge technology has been developed in collaboration with LUT University in Lappeenranta and granted funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 SME Instrument Phase 2.
