System Structure

How can Less be More?
Less is more can be achieved by using top quality materials at high investment costs next to absolute modular designs that take care of low production and maintenance cost, efficiency based upon direct flow and most important modularity in design, implementation, exploitation and maintenance. This modularity (standardized 1MW units) creates repetition possibilities at a price level incomparable to bespoke solutions.

  • modular components & parts take care of efficient low cost production, installation and maintenance.

  • system design criteria define new content for efficiency (direct flow) and avoid "waste" coming from intermediate storage and synchronisation.

  • low weight and volume makes transportability, flexibility an maintenace/operations possible at extreme low cost levels.

  • a system approach allows for unattended and remote operations.

  • repetition delivers capacity configurations between 1MW-1000MW in stacked positions of 10 times 1.

  • flexibility directs the use as independent, distributed or central generation. Housed in units that are earthquake and flood resistant.

  • modularity and repetition combined with start/stop capability gives pseudo-dynamic capacity control in 1MW steps.

  • simple egineering (less parts and industry standard only) directs low cost on maintenace and endurance on systems. Efficiency as in bespoke solutions becomes secondary.

  • Coefficient of Performance on components delivers full green and sustainable systems.

  • Cost prices/Kwh at levels that are incomparable to current used technologies. Equal investment level.
