Finno Exergy Oy has received the “Seal of Excellence” from EU
Finno Exergy Oy has received the “Seal of Excellence” from EU for the application of the project titled: “Pressure Gain System for gas turbines: Most efficient and cost-effective solution to decarbonize power generation and mobility industries” under the call “Horizon 2020-EIC Accelerator pilot –SME Instrument”.
The Seal of Excellence is a quality label awarded to project proposals submitted to Horizon 2020, the EU’s research and innovation funding program. Projects which were judged to deserve funding but did not get it due to budget limits receive the Seal of Excellence.
Details related to the Finno`s presentation and Q&A session
Details related to the Finno`s presentation and Q&A session at AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum that will be live today.
Session: PGC-04, PGC Laser Based Diagnostics, Live Technical Q&A Session: August 24, 2020 from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM, EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME (GMT-4) – Presentation: Experimental demonstration of a novel deflagration-based pressure gain combustion technology. https://www.aiaa.org/propulsionenergy
The publication with report on measured pressure gain from Finno Exergy’s test unit
The publication with report on measured pressure gain from Finno Exergy’s test unit, Experimental demonstration of a novel deflagration-based pressure gain combustion technology, is now available from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. See more about the 2020 AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum and Exposition on https://www.aiaa.org/propulsionenergy.
A Finno Exergy paper was accepted to be presented at the AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum 2020
The event shall take place at New Orleans (USA) 22-24 of August (if corona will not cancel the event). The topic of the paper is “Experimental demonstration of a novel deflagration-based pressure gain combustion technology”. The Team is excited about this since it will be the first ever presentation at a major venue released by Finno Exergy. Link to the event → https://www.aiaa.org/propulsionenergy
There is a small but important change in the name of the company
Finno Energy now is Finno Exergy. Exergy is the maximum useful work available from a thermodynamic system. Finno Exergy pressure gain combustion system has been designed to to extract maximum amount of useful energy out of fuel. Exergy is right at the heart of our action. Finno Energy became Finno Exergy in September 2019.
Finno Energy is presenting a poster at The International Constant Volume and Detonation Combustion Workshop
On 17-18 August 2019, Finno Energy is presenting a poster at The International Constant Volume and Detonation Combustion Workshop organized by Pressure Gain Combustion Committee. The venue is Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. And on 19-21 August 2019, Finno Energy is attending The AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum in Indianapolis, Indiana.
U.S. Department of Energy has published a very interesting technical report
U.S. Department of Energy has published a very interesting technical report about applying pressure gain combustion to combined cycle power generation. The paper states that “PGC technology represents a potential disruptive change in power plant efficiency that is not achievable through standard gas turbine technology”.

Finno Energy has made various new simulations
Finno Energy has made various new simulations of its process in different sizes and gas turbine applications. The results are excellent, and they are proving the flexibility of Finno Energy PGC technology.
Finno Energy started a project with a major gas turbine manufacturer
The goal of the project is to show the potential of Finno Energy’s pressure gain combustion applied to their technology.
First coupled simulation with GT-POWER and CONVERGE CFD was run on Finno Energy’s digital development platform
The simulated pressure trace matched the pressure trace that was measured from the test unit. Simulations with the new design are giving promising results about the technology’s potential.
The testing of the updated test unit has shown some really promising results
New record in pressure gain was measured with the new setup.
Finno Energy updated their digital development
Finno Energy updated their digital development platform with an in-house High-Performance Computing (HPC) facilities. The facilities are used to run CONVERGE CFD simulations of our process. The new HPC cluster consists of 144 cores.
Finno Energy did a major update to the test unit
The updated test unit is now ready to be tested. The team is waiting for excellent results from the tests.
