Finno Energy was established in 2012 by Timo Erämaa and Heikki Salminen. They spotted an opportunity for a technology to enable power generation with the electrical efficiency of Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs) along with the reliability, the availability, the ability to use several different feedstocks, and the reduced emissions of gas turbines.

OUR UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY

OUR UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY

“An existing turbine burns at constant pressure. With detonation, pressure is rising, and the total energy available for the turbine increases. We see the potential of 30 percent fuel-efficiency improvement…I think it (efficiency gains) will be anywhere from 5 percent to 10 percent.” Michael Idelchik, VP of Advanced Technology Programs at GE Research

Finno Energy’s innovation is based on using pulsed deflagration combustion compatible with existing technology, which has yielded significant results. The technology team have successfully harnessed concepts prevalent in ICE combustion and applied them to gas turbines. Effectively the technology is able to harness 80% of the benefits without any of the drawbacks associated with pulse detonation.

Finno Energy’s combustion process achieves an electrical efficiency of over 40% at sub-20MW scale, reducing fuel consumption up to 10% compared with existing gas turbine solutions at the same scale. The benefits include reduced lifetime maintenance and fuel costs compared with gas engines and diesel generators, and the ability to use multiple input fuels without impacting the overall electrical efficiency.

Pressure Gain Combustion Technology

We have developed a clean, pressure-gain combustion process for power generation in gas turbines. Using accurate flow and combustion control, our patented process is able to generate record level pressure gain of more than 20%, resulting in up to 10% fuel savings.

Engineering and joint development services

We are providing engineering services especially for engine simulations, analysis and optimization including CFD. Our team is working on joint-development projects with our clients to adapt our combustion system innovations for commercial utilization in their gas turbines.

Backup Power Solutions

Our backup power solutions used with installations which require guaranteed provisioning of power. They are fully modular, easy to install and can be managed fully remotely. Currently they are utilized with telecom base stations and other application areas are under way.
