  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : CHP Powers Major UK Hospital
    December 16, 2014
    A UK regional hospital now covers most of its heating and low-temperature hot water needs with combined heat and power.

    the hospital’s electricity needs, and supplies hot water and heating to the neighbouring spinal treatment centre and day surgery through a 520-metre district heating network.

    Tony McDermott, business development manager (healthcare) at ENER-G Combined Power, said: ‘The district heating system provides the perfect constant warm temperature required by people recovering from spinal injuries at the specialist treatment centre. The CHP system satisfies normal heat requirements, with the backup boilers used if there is peak demand.’ The hospital Trust reports annual savings of over £240,000 (US$391,750)

  • USA : Capstone Receives Orders for Twenty-Five C65s From E-Finity Distributed Generation
    August 11, 2014
    Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced the receipt of orders for 25 Capstone C65 microturbines, totaling 1.6MW, for use in various commercial industrial combined heat and power (CHP) and oil and gas applications in the Mid-Atlantic United States.

    E-Finity Distributed Generation, Capstone's distributor for the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern U.S., secured the significant follow-on business.

    A number of the C65s will be deployed in CHP and CCHP applications in the Mid-Atlantic territory for use at a university and in multi-family housing complexes. The units will burn natural gas and produce base load electricity as well as hot water and/or chilled water at many of the sites. The modular, small and versatile C65 units allow for easy installation and will be located on rooftops or with existing mechanical building equipment.

  • USA : NY Co-Op to Install CHP System
    August 08, 2014
    EnglandNorth Shore Towers, a luxury co-op community based just east of New York City, has partnered with GI Energy to complete a $13 million upgrade of its 43-year-old combined heat and power system.

    Originally installed in 1971,GI Energy was contracted to replace three of six generators and associated electrical and heat recovery equipment at the CHP plant, while maintaining continuous operation of the entire complex. GI Energy teamed with Caterpillar distributor, H.O. Penn Machinery, to install three natural-gas fired reciprocating engines totalling 4.8 MW. Additionally, the team replaced the cooling tower and installed a new gas compressor and heat exchangers. These upgrades increase overall efficiency while extending the life of the plant by an estimated 30 years.
