About project "TurboSphere"

The possibility of generating electrical energy

WITHOUT ADDITIONAL FUEL COMBUSTION but at the expense of PRESSURE DIFFERENCE of NATURAL GAS

      The turbogenerator units TurboSphere (TGU "TurboSphere") is the innovative development created by TurboSphere group of companies: LLC “Scientific and Engineering Center “EnergoTech” the resident of Science and Technology Park of BNTU “Polytechnic” and Skolkovo project participant LLC “TurboEnergy”.

     This product is intended for a generation of additional electric energy at the expense of pressure difference of natural gas that allows to increase fuel efficiency, to receive an environmentally friendly electric power source and also additional income for the enterprise, equivalent to annual cut on electric energy purchase from external network, or by its sale to a third-party consumer!

     TGU "TurboSphere" represents the innovative solution applied at Gas Pressure Regulating Station, Gas Pressure Reducing Station and Gas Pressure Reducing Units in gas transmission systems, the industry, the municipal sector and energetics to productively use energy of  natural gas overpressure energy.

It is possible to decide whether TGU "TurboSphere" will be favorable specifically to you in only 3 steps:

  1. To define an expense and pressure difference of natural gas on your object (to provide the completed questionnaire for the analysis – in the application).
  2. To pick up a unit from the model range given below (or to contact our experts for selection).
  3. To estimate revenue of implementing unit and its payback period.

Preliminary economic indicators can be estimated on the following example:

On an object with an average consumption of natural gas in 2000 m3/h and standard pressure difference for similar objects 3 (absolute input in respect to the output) the average generated power will be 20 kW that corresponds to annual power production at the level of 160 thousand kW·h.

At an average tariff for electric energy of 0,2 Euro for kW·h and the conditions described above annual cut will make up to 32K Euro or about 45 t of conditional fuel.

      The offered model range of installations works in the range of expense from 500 and up to 40000 m3/h and also with natural gas pressure to 6,3 MPa that allows to achieve universality and the opportunity almost everywhere to use gas differential pressure energy.

     The main difference of the TurboSphere units from turbodetanders and detander-generating units is that it is capable to work in the wide range of expenses and gas pressure, keeping at the same time both required parameters and quality of the generated electric power; it is reliable, rather inexpensive unit, the minimum requirements to technical services. TurboSphere is applicable for both autonomous power supply where the main goal is to ensure needs for the electric power of object's own needs and for parallel work with an external network when the purpose is to generate maximum power using all potential from gas stream while delivering electric power to an internal network of an enterprise and with sale (if needed) of  overpressure energy to an external network.

The specified advantages are reached mainly by:

  1. The original patented construction at which there is a high level of use of standard elements, details and nodes of local production that also excludes dependence on import.
  2. Use of common industrial asynchronous generators and bearing blocks with consistent lubrication and also absence of dynamic multiplexing.
  3. The relative simplicity of construction due to minimization of quantity of details and elements and also a turbogenerator low speed (the synchronous rotating speed - 3000 RPM).
  4. Besides we managed to realize the diagram of multistage extension of gas on one driving wheel with a possibility of the intermediate heating of gas in the course of extension by means of the built-in heat exchanger heater, using low-potential heat and thermal waste of the enterprises.
  5. Unit is intended for operation not only on natural gas, but also with others non-agressive gases.

      TGU "TurboSphere" are developed and made according to all to requirements of standards European and Coustom unions (TR CU 04, TR CU 012, TR CU 020, TR CU 032, Gazpromsert, etc. Process of certification in the European Union is conducted.) Our company works and has undergone assessment procedure of compliance to the international quality management system of ISO 9001.
