OPRA Turbines Launch New Website

OPRA Turbines announced today, 29 November 2018, the launch of its newly designed website. Visitors are encouraged to explore the new OPRA website www.opraturbines.com

Featuring a streamlined, simplified design, with improved functionality the new website focuses on OPRA’s mission to drive the world’s energy transition. Among some of the content that will be available on the new website, is a dedicated page per each of OPRA’s key sales segments, (Oil & Gas, Industrial & Commercial, Waste to Power, and Marine) highlighting the benefits of the OP16 Gas Turbine within each application. The website will also feature an innovation page where details on OPRA’s key focus areas of combustion technology, hybrid energy systems, digitalization and additive manufacturing can be found.

In the coming months, a fuel composition checker will be added to the website. The OP16 Gas Turbine has the ability to utilize a large range of fuels without the need for cleaning. However, every fuel is unique. This fuel composition checker allows visitors to obtain a quick initial assessment on whether their fuel is compatible with the OP16 Gas Turbine.

“We are very excited to launch our new website. Our aim when designed a new website was to ensure our visitors had access to the right information within a modern and user-friendly environment” said Shauna Dunne, Marketing Coordinator at OPRA Turbines. “Our new website design needed to match the sophisticated simplicity of our product, the OP16 Gas Turbine. Our advanced turbine technology has turned the OP16 Gas Turbine into a masterpiece of technology allowing us to serve global markets with clean, distributed energy solutions. At OPRA, we are proud that our turbines have the unique ability to operate on a large variety of fuel. Adding the new fuel composition checker allows visitors to instantly check if the OP16 Gas Turbine can handle their fuel without the need for cleaning”

OPRA Turbines new website will be regularly updated with information on the OP16 Gas Turbine and news uploads on company activities. The website is currently available in English. Spanish, Russian and Chinese language will be added in the near future.

Press Release

OPRA Turbines Introduce New CEO

OPRA Turbines is pleased to announce, from October 01 2018, Mr Juha van Riet has assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer at OPRA International B.V. reporting to the Supervisory Board.

Mr. Juha van Riet holds a Master of Science degree in Electromechanical Engineering from the University of Ghent and a postgraduate degree in Business Administration from the University of Leuven. Previously having worked with Siemens, Woodward and Stork, Juha has more than 20 years of experience in commercial and business leadership roles as a service/solution provider and key system supplier to the energy, oil & gas and process industry sector.

“My deep respect goes out to the Mowill family, who single-handed have built this company in the nineties. They have succeeded to attract the in house competence and build the supply chain required to optimize a strong gas turbine design and turn it into an installed base of more than a hundred machines. After the acquisition by Energas in 2017, OPRA has now entered a new era with increased focus on operational excellence and a sustainable, global commercial and service structure. I am very excited to contribute to this transition and look forward to working together with a highly competent, diverse and dynamic team.

OPRA’s OP16 Gas Turbine has an unmatched value proposition in distributed energy applications such as flare gas-to-power, waste-to-power and combined heat and power (CHP). As a young company and an outsider in the market, OPRA is well positioned to extend its market share and has the potential to become the leader in the 1-2 MW gas turbine segment. OPRA is focusing on applications that will continue to be part of the future energy landscape and structurally contribute to a better environment.” Juha van Riet, Chief Executive Officer, OPRA Turbines.
