Company

After a long period of developing and testing MEC started serial production and sales of the 1 kW Free Piston Stirling Engine in 2010. Combined with the burner, controllers and heat exchanger also developed by Microgen, this MEC 1 kW engine shapes the heart of a huge number of Domestic Combined Heat Power Applications that have since been installed by heating companies around Europe. Thousands of these devices are now in use in household environments and have made hundreds of millions of run hours.
