The Opportunity

Waste heat is all around us. Harness it.

Terrapin specializes exclusively in finding and utilizing heat to drive profitability.

We do this by mapping available waste heat, matching that with optimal cutting edge technology and building strong financial models to make for slam-dunk investment decisions.

  • The opportunity at Industrial Facilities

  • The Opportunity with Compressors

    High horsepower compressors are a simple, efficient and reliable source of waste heat.

TYPICAL Solutions

Direct Heat Use

The highest value of heat is often as heat. Re-integrating waste heat in other parts of the facility, or finding a neighbouring facility that will buy your waste heat is one of the most obvious ways Terrapin can bring immediate value to your facility.

Low temperature power

Terrapin has developed it’s own proprietary power generation engine focused on converting low-grade waste heat in the 80°C-140°C temperature range into clean, renewable power.

High temperature power

High temperature waste heat streams present the quickest payback option in doing heat to power. Terrapin specializes in matching the ideal technology to the available heat stream to provide the highest possible ROI.

Hedges & Offsets

The regulations and incentives around carbon offsets & environmental credits is always changing. Terrapin has deep expertise of the policies, pricing, incentives and offset protocols that can significantly improve project ROI and reduce the requirement for some commodity hedges.
