Our Expertise


Heliex then..

Our story begins in 1992, in City University, London, when Ian Smith, Professor of Applied Thermodynamics and Professor Nikola Stosic began working together on twin screw machines. 

Two years later the Professors established the now world leading Centre for Positive Displacement Compressor Technology.

They made progress in the field of screw expanders and it became clear that their work had serious commercial applications.

Heliex’s Chief Technical Officer, Dan Wright, has received an MBE for his services to engineering and along with the Professors, formed Heliex Power.

Heliex has the exclusive license to use the University’s patented technology world-wide in the field of steam. Shareholders include Scottish Enterprise, BP Ventures and ESB,  a €200m fund managed by Greencoat Capital.

Heliex now...
