TECO-Westinghouse launches U.S.-Manufactured Heat Recovery System (HRS); Revolutionizes Utility and Oil and Gas Sectors with C02 Reduction Process

TECO-Westinghouse has teamed up with L.A. Turbine and A G Equipment to design and deploy a Heat Recovery System that will help revolutionize heavy industry. Designed for new and retrofit applications, this HRS includes “green energy” C02 capture. Product research and testing began in 2020 at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina.

Dean Sarandria, TECO-Westinghouse Director of Custom Products and Green Energy, points out, “This product is aligned with the TECO’s vision of energy conservation, emission reduction, intelligence and automation.” He adds, “We are excited to have designed a product that reduces greenhouse gases.”

Collaboration between the three companies combines specified areas of engineering to address new applications and retrofit markets. The Heat Recovery System’s product effectiveness is supported by the applied Organic Rankin Cycle technique. Heat capture is utilized during heat expansion and contraction within the system. The turboexpander, developed by L.A. Turbine, drives TECO-Westinghouse’s “high speed” motor, supported by AG Equipment’s compressor package.

TECO-Westinghouse continues to advance engineering and product development toward expansion of green product offerings. The Heat Recovery System (HRS) works alongside mid to large scale Battery Storage Systems (BESS), Electric Vehicle Charging, Wind and Solar Energy integration. Their in-house U.S. and global manufacturing capabilities produce effective turnkey micro-grids for grid-tied and remote applications in desert, mountain, and coastal regions. Aligning with sustainability and green energy initiatives, TECO-Westinghouse continues to bridge the industrial demand of legacy motor product lines with emerging, renewable energy technologies.
