AMT (Advanced Microturbines Srl), a company specialized in microturbines, and FAST SpA, a leader in monitoring and telecontrol systems, co-operate within the SME Instrument Phase 2 European Project entitled “Innovative Microturbine Technology For Delocalised, Off-Grid Electricity Generation” to develop an integrated solution for energy autonomous telecontrol, that is self-powered by the microturbine.

The Microturbine is an energy harvesting device that uses the wasted gas energy when this is throttled, e.g. in pressure reducing valves. The energy is captured by the Microturbine and converted into electric energy, directly available in situ.

It’s a major step forward in the energy recovery culture in the world of gas distribution. The initiative has been appreciated by the major gas utilities that would benefit from having a continuous off-grid energy source in remote areas that allows to have an increase in the efficiency of the gas distribution network and increase its environmental friendliness.

This project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 732493



Advanced Microturbines Srl is a company born in 2013 as a spin-off of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, and specialized in the design, development and production of very high performance millimiter size microturbines, based on a proprietary patented technology.



FAST SpA works as System Integrator of process control and as producer of hardware and software solutions in response to every requirement concerning control, remote control
and supervision in different areas
as civil and industrial.
