Who we are Click here for our corporate video
We are a 100% italian firm, located in Verona, Italy, working in the field of renewable energies, with particular regard to Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) electric power generation systems , which have several applications in the efficient conversion of waste heat and low-temperature heat into electricity. We are not just system integrator, as we design and build ourselves the special turbines which are the core of our systems.

ZE-50-ULH

50ULH-lato-monitor 720x405The ZE-50-ULH energy production module is an ORC system working on hot water (T≥93°C) and capable of outputting up to 50 kWE of electricity into the grid with a thermal power input of 500-600 kWT. Compact and efficient, it finds its ideal place in applications such as waste heat recovery from engines and industrial processes, small-scale geothermal and solar thermal power generation.

ULH+ Series Modules

ULH PlusThe ULH Plus series systems by Zuccato Energia are ORC modules using hot water (≥95°C) as a vector fluid to produce 200 to 300 kWE by exploiting thermal sources having 2500 to 3600 kWT of thermal power. This makes them ideal for those applications where thermal energy is abundant but temperature is low, such as large-scale waste heat recovery or geothermal applications.

ZE-150-LT

Click here to see the product presentation video The ZE-150-LT energy production module from Zuccato Energia is an ORC system working on overheated water (T≥155°C) and capable of up to 150 kWE output with a 1100 kWT thermal input. Compact and powerful, it represent the ideal solution for small scale or residential power plants (e.g. biogas-fueled or biomass-fueled plants).

CHP Series Modules

175CHP_720x405The CHP Series ORC modules use over- heated water (T≥160°C) as vector fluid and can be switched in a few minutes from CHP mode, producing both 80°C hot water and electric power, to a full- energy mode devoted to hi-performance power generation, thus being ideal systems for applications where hot sanitary water is required.k

Application: Waste heat recovery from flue gases and cooling jackets of a biogas-fueled MAN engine


GBG Mappa IT 253x300This plant, managed by GEO BioGas GmbH is located in Benneckenstein, a small German town in the Harz district of the Saxony-Anhalt länder. It has been installed to optimize the efficiency of a micro-thermoelectric powerplant based on a biogas-fueled MAN genset. The plant is thus eligible for the incentives set forth by the Federal german government for those who set up a microgeneration plant based on renewable energy sources.

The system Zuccato Energia supplied is a ZE-50-ULH ORC power module, with a nominal output of 50 kWE, which operates recovering waste heat from the cooling jackets and flue gases of the genset, thus giving a significant contribution to the overall system efficiency.

The skid-mounted ORC system is hosted, together with the genset it recovers heat from, in a very small prefabricated concrete building placed in a field beside the main road of a small industrial area. The plant is fully operator-independent as it is managed entirely by remote control via the Web. The compactness of the ZE system has made it possible to host both the skid - including turbine, heat exchangers, and control panels - and the genset in a shed about the size of two shipping containers placed end-to-end. Cooling for the ORC condensation stage is granted by a dry cooler system placed on the building's roof.

The fuel used by the genset (i.e. biogas) is an environmentally friendly, renewable energy source made even more competitive by local an state incentives. It has near zero environmental impact regarding CO2 emissions, as the CO2 released in the atmosphere is the same which was captured before by the plants the animals grazed upon.
