Field of activity: Research department - Engineering , Manufacturer - Maker , Service company


ENERTIME is a technology company providing industrial solutions for the energy transition. ENERTIME designs and manufactures thermodynamic machines and the turbomachines that are its technological core since 2008.

The main activity is now focused on Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) mini power plants for the energy efficiency of industrial processes and decentralised renewable electricity production.

ORCs operate on the principle of a steam power plant in which an organic fluid (low boiling point) replaces water. CROs are an advantageous replacement for conventional steam-cycle power plants for temperatures below 300°C up to 10MWe and more. CCOs are also relevant for small plants of less than 2MWe regardless of the temperature of the heat source, in power generation or cogeneration.

CROs have applications in waste heat recovery, medium enthalpy geothermal and power generation from biomass combustion heat and decentralised concentrated solar power. In waste heat recovery applications CRBs allow continuous, CO2-free and competitive electricity production compared to all other technical solutions.

More generally, ENERTIME develops and builds “tailor-made” turbomachines in the field of gas compression-expansion (turbines, compressors) and integrates them in specific energy systems such as CROs and high power, high temperature Heat Pumps.
