Technical Visits to ITS in July, 2014

ATEKNEA-H visited SME partner ITS in July 2014. The purpose of the meeting was to enhance the knowledge on the state-of-the art Stirling development technology of ITS on low temperature and low pressure. The specification of the RECOICE Stirling were discussed and defined preliminary. Material selection, size parameters, ruggedisation and manufacturing options were assessed. Discussion was also ongoing on possible Stirling prototype testing and monitoring for some time before the installation on the boat. In the afternoon session, the ITS Stirling-engine in operation was also presented in the city of Resiutta.

TWI also visited SME partner ITS Energy in July 2014. The purpose of the meeting was to review the Stirling engine parts, to understand opportunities for improvements in manufacture, ruggedisation, and reductions in cost. Several design ideas were explored, including a new heat exchanger configuration.
