ORCHYRE: ORC demonstrator for a hybrid biomass-solar CSP Project

Enertime signed a research and development convention with the region of the Reunion Island, to carry out an economical and technical feasibility study for an ORC demonstration module fed by concentrated solar collectors and biomass boiler.

The objective of the ORCHYRE Project is to help restore biodiversity in the Reunion Highlands by eliminating biomass pest and to secure basic power supply in case to help prevent disconnection of the local grid from the main grid.

Like any distributed power project, ORCHYRE will contribute to the development of the territory and the creation of local perennial jobs.
