Hyliion Holdings Corp, a developer of sustainable electricity-producing technology based in Austin, Texas, USA, has announced that it has begun the Additive Manufacturing of parts for its production-intent design of the KARNO generator.

The KARNO generator uses AM to produce most of its components, including all critical heat exchangers and thermodynamics systems. The AM process not only improves the precision and quality of these components, but also helps increase the overall efficiency of the generator.

“We are thrilled to begin printing the production-intent design of the KARNO generator which showcases another major step on our path to deploying this technology with customers,” shared Thomas Healy, Founder and CEO of Hyliion. “The initial 200 kW BETA units will operate at our Cincinnati, Ohio, development facility in order to confirm the superior efficiency levels, ultra-low emissions, and long runtime between maintenance.”

Hyliion acquired the KARNO generator technology from GE Additive in 2022. The power generator is capable of operating on over twenty different fuels, including hydrogen, natural gas, propane, ammonia and conventional fuels.

Hyliion has completed designs of the major components of the BETA version of the KARNO generator, and is now ready for final validation. Throughout 2024, Hyliion will be completing testing and verification of the BETA generator to prepare for initial deployments to early adopters of the technology later this year.
