BS-GEN 520 Engine

The BS-GEN 520 Engine was initiated based on a customer request to utilize the stored thermal energy from their own TES (Thermal Energy Storage) unit.

BSEL delivers a low-cost, general purpose solution for any heat source.

The BS-GEN 520 can be incorporated into a ground-based generator system, utilizing external air routing and TES units to heat pressurized air from the engine’s compressor and direct it back to the turbine. Introduction of  pre-heated air increases the thermodynamic efficiency of the cycle, resulting in lower (or zero) fuel consumption.
