Combined Power Solutions
» The Future is Combined Power
Combined power is an efficient and clean approach to generating electric power, useful thermal energy usually in the form of either hot water or steam, and/or chilled water from a single fuel source. Simultaneous production of electricity and heat is named CHP. Production of electricity, heat and chilled water is named CCHP.
CHP is used either to replace or supplement conventional separate heat and power. Instead of purchasing electricity from the local utility and burning fuel in an on-site furnace or boiler to produce thermal energy, an industrial or commercial facility can use CHP to provide both energy services in one energy-efficient step.
Methania offers completely integrated combined power solution based on Otto gas engine. We are specialized in high efficiency systems for natural gas and biogas in the power range between 20 and 2.000 kW electrical power. We serves a wide range of customers from farmers to industrial clients, municipalities, real estate industry up to big utility companies.
Cogeneration (CHP) is a well-proven technology, recognised worldwide as a more efficient alternative to traditional centralised generation. It is the use of a heat engine or power station to simultaneously generate electricity and useful heat.
- Reduced primary energy costs
- Stabilised electricity costs over a fixed period
- Reduced investment surrounding plant e.g. boilers
- Potential benefits from energy efficient Incentives
- Reduced base load electricity supply
- Additional security of supply
- Increased diversity on heating and hot water
- Cooling provision using absporption chillers
Trigeneration, as the name implies, refers to the production of three energies: electricity, heat and chilled water. Chilled water is achieved by incorporating an absorption chiller into a Cogeneration system. Absorption chillers take the waste heat from a Cogeneration plant to create chilled water for cooling a building or for industrial process.
Introducing an absorption chiller into a Cogeneration system means that the site is able to increase the operational hours of the plant with an increased utilisation of heat, particularly in summer periods.
