Can you better specify what you are looking for 1/100 hp stirlings are
relatively easy to find - 100 hp stirlings are rather more difficult.

It would also help to specify the desired heat source (solar, gas, coal,
etc) and desired operating temperature range...

It looks like the Original Poster's first language is not English, so
he/she may well be located somewhere far from us, and also may not
understsnd what "hp" means.

Agreed. However he did post in English to an English-language newsgroup
- and if he's general manager of an organization considering a Stirling
project, 'hp' should be in his (or an engineering associate's) vocabulary.

Out of curiosity (because I've received a fair number of inquiries like
the OP's over the past few years) why do you suppose production of small
(1/2/5/10hp) Stirlings hasn't blossomed?

Most of the interesting work I've seen has been done by Brits, but
nearly all of that was home-built stuff for boating use. In a time of
sagging GNP's and a demand for alternative energy technologies I would
have expected that someone would have been motivated to go into
production. Instead, the entire collection of G8 countries seem to be
shunning real commercial opportunity.

I even got an e-mail from a guy in China who badly wanted a proven
design to put into mass production. AFAIK, he's still looking...

D'you suppose junk bonds and wobbly mortgages are really that much more
attractive as investments in today's world?

His name looks Turkish to me. If he's in Turkey, h's not likely to see
many references to horsepower. Kilowatts would be the normally-used
units of power.

I really don't know why Stirlings haven't caught the world's
attention. Maybe people realize that the concept is old, so they go
off to find something new. Perhaps you should call the ones you build
Dovey engines. More people might be interested in them.

I sometimes cross the border into the States, and soon realize what a
terrible economic mess you've got down there.
