Durr is a global provider of custom-engineered ancillary equipment and solutions for the power generation, oil and gas, industrial processing, and backup power markets. Durr manufactures the Cyplan® organic rankine cycle (ORC) technology for decentralized waste heat to power (WHP) generation.

HiP Chairman John Prunkl said,

“We are excited to see a global ORC manufacturer like Durr making a strong entrance in the U.S. waste heat to power market. Durr is a well-known equipment manufacturer in the European energy sector. With the rapidly changing American energy landscape moving towards reduced carbon emissions and higher energy efficiency, Durr is smart to recognize the market potential for its ORC technology here in the USA.

Jim Mitchell, Durr’s U.S. Director of Sales, sees that potential,

“We believe the energy world is changing and that highly efficient, small and decentralized power generation is displacing fossil-fired centralized power plants. Our message to the U.S. market is that Durr’s Cyplan® ORC technology can improve the efficiency of gensets by as much as 30% and provide a ROI in a short timeframe. Our technology improves the carbon footprint of fossil-fired generation and also generates carbon-free power from small and medium heat sources such as biomass or geothermal.”

Why is joining HiP a good move for Durr? Jim has several answers,

“We recognize the value of working with an organization like Heat is Power in terms of networking with U.S. companies and also gaining insight into the evolving U.S. policy landscape for waste heat to power. We appreciate the fact that HiP is focused solely on waste heat to power and getting our unique message out to the market and policy makers. I personally look forward to being an active participant in HiP’s policy advocacy on behalf of Durr and our industry.”
