In collaboration with Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ) the Helmholtzinstitut Mainz (HIM) pursues the design of an 8MV electron cooler. In the present concept, about 1 MW of electrical power would be needed to drive the compressor-system for turbogenerators which use the insulating gas (sulphur hexafluoride, SF6) as medium. We propose to generate the necessary flow of pressurized SF6 by an ORC process in order to reduce the power consumption considerably.
