In California, Ener-Core announced that it has successfully achieved all of the Sub Scale Acceptance Test (SSAT) criteria required by Dresser-Rand with regard to scaling up Ener-Core’s Power Oxidizer technology to the 1.75-2 MW size/power capacity.
Since January 2015, Ener-Core and Dresser-Rand engineers have been working together to scale up Ener-Core’s Power Oxidizer and integrate it with Dresser-Rand’s KG2-3G gas turbine. The first two integrated systems are intended for delivery to Pacific Ethanol in 2016, as part of an innovative co-generation plant that will utilize the plant’s waste gases as fuel. This Sub-Scale Acceptance Test is the first critical milestone of this project.
The test was conducted at Ener-Core’s Multi-Fuel Test Facility (MFTF). Ener-Core and Dresser-Rand management teams will organize and host a “Technology Day” for prospective customers at Ener-Core’s headquarters to demonstrate this new technology for generating power from waste gases.
