What we do

Kalina Power is focused on the industrialisation of the Kalina Cycle® Technology through project ownership, and Turnkey power solutions with a focus on two separate regions, being Asia and the rest of the world.

Kalina Power will focus on the rest of World marketplace and manage the Company’s IP and knowhow and will be specifically focused on building commercial relationships with global companies for the design of installations, procurement of the necessary materials and to build the plants, with the objective of achieving rapid growth of the technology. The partnerships will enable the Company to offer turnkey Kalina plants as an integral component of projects. It is anticipated that Kalina Power will work collaboratively with major industry partners to provide specialised engineering and IP development opportunities.

New Energy Asia (NEA) is focussed on the commercialisation of the Kalina Cycle® in Asian Territories. Kalina Power owns 75% of NEA alongside local partners. Key to the growth of NEA is the first Kalina Cycle plant in China, the Sinopec Hainan 4MWe Kalina Cycle® plant.

Industrial Waste Heat

Waste Heat to Power (WHP) – Recycling energy.

WHP is the process of recycling discarded heat from industrial processes and power generation facilities to generate electrical power. Energy intensive industries such as petrochemical, cement, steel and glass making and power generation facilities, such as coal fired power stations, make up a majority of waste heat opportunities. Kalina Power’s Kalina Cycle®  is the most efficient way to capture low to mid temperature waste heat & transform it into power.

Renewable Heat

Geothermal and solar thermal - harnessing the earths energy.

Harnessing low to mid temperature renewable heat is a major under-utilised global source of energy. Kalina Cycle Technology has been proven the most efficient to turn low to mid temperature heat into power in a variety of renewable heat applications. Geothermal resources are reservoirs of hot water that exist below the earths surface.
