A successful Paris Air Show
23 September 2019
Turbotech attended for the second time the Paris Air Show. On this occasion the company was able to showcase its expertise in high technology hybrid propulsion systems alongside its main partners Safran and Le Guellec at the show’s Paris Air Lab hall, dedicated to presenting innovations and key aerospace challenges. Turbotech was also present on the Paris Ille de France Pavillion in Hall 4, with it brand new regenerative turboprop.
HIGH TECHNOLOGY AERONAUTICAL PROPULSION SOLUTIONS
Turbotech is a French company offering “haute performance” propulsion systems for aviation industry actors looking for efficient and eco-friendly flight solutions.
Turbotech is the first company in the world to introduce regenerative turbines for aeronautical applications, supported by a strong partnership with the French manufacturer Le Guellec, to develop the key technology of micro-tubes heat exchangers.
ENGINEERED TO PERFORM
WHAT IS A “REGENERATIVE TURBINE” & WHY IS THIS TECHNOLOGY EFFICIENT?
A regenerative turbine is a turbine-engine equipped with a heat exchanger, capable of recovering the heat, and reinjecting it in to engine, leading to a dramatical fuel burn reduction. This heat is normally wasted on conventional turbine engines.
The idea of using a heat exchanger is not new, it is used on large industrial turbines, and battle tank turbines for example. However, the real challenge in the aviation industry is to have a very light, compact and reliable heat exchanger. Turbotech, with the help of Le Guellec, has managed to develop an exceptionally performant micro-tube heat exchanger, thanks to 10 years of R/D effort.
BASED ON THIS TECHNOLOGY, TURBOTECH HAS DEVELOPED TWO PRODUCT LINES
To be a global leader in high technology aeronautical propulsion solutions for hybrid-electric and conventional aircraft
By providing the general aviation sector with a new generation of high-performance turbine-engines. & By enabling long range hybrid-electric flights, with a specifically designed high-efficiency turbogenerator
