These products consist of a turbocharger, turbogenerator and a power electronics unit that work together to either increase the efficiency of the genset or increase the power output. Through recovering the exhaust gases from the turbocharger, a turbo generator produces power which is cleaned by the power electronics in order to be clean and grid-quality. These systems can cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 4-7%, or generate up to 10% extra power.
Gas engine specifier and maintainer CooperÖstlund will act as Bowman’s sole preferred UK installer of this energy-efficiency technology for all natural gas, landfill gas and biogas applications. In addition, CooperÖstlund will have the ability to sell and supply Bowman’s ETC products to its existing and prospective customer base.
Bowman will continue to work directly with engine and genset original equipment manufacturers; and with customers that have existing installer partnerships, if required. Installations outside of the UK will continue to be performed by Bowman or others.
Paul Dowman-Tucker, CEO of Bowman, said: “Thanks to CooperÖstlund’s highly capable and broad field engineering resources, it will play a key role in helping us fulfil the high levels of interest in our ETC technology in the UK.”
Duncan McPherson, CEO of CooperÖstlund Ltd, commented: “We are very excited to have been appointed as Bowman’s preferred UK installer. The reliability and maintainability of their products is very high, and one of the reasons we feel comfortable taking on this role. Ultimately, we see huge potential for their innovative ETC technology to bring energy efficiency uplifts and reduce emissions for our customers.”
