Gas turbine manufacturer Aurelia Turbines has shipped its first turbine for commercial use to a client from Aurelia’s factory in Lappeenranta, Finland.
The Aurelia® A400 turbine is suited for small-scale combined heat and power generation in decentralised grids and has been designed to meet the needs of small and medium-sized industrial processes.
Aurelia’s turbine is able to use hydrogen, biogas and synthetic gas, as well as other renewable and non-standard fuels, providing clients with the flexibility needed to balance the changes in renewable energy generation.
Matti Malkamäki, CEO of Aurelia Turbines, said, “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.”
“The turbines to be delivered in the very near future will be capable of using hydrogen as a fuel; driven the growing production of renewable energy, there is an increasing demand for novel hydrogen energy solutions around the world.”
Aurelia’s 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.
