  • Belgium : Cogeneration a Vital Part of $1bn Exxon Mobil Project
    July 08, 2014
    A 130 MW cogeneration unit is set to play a part in a substantial investment being made by Exxon Mobil in, Antwerp, Belgium. Exxon Mobil Corp. has announced that it will investmore than $1bn at a Belgian refinery where it will install a new delayed coker unit to produce marine gasoil and diesel fuel. "Our investments at this refinery, totalling more than $2bn in less than a decade, will contribute to meeting the demand for fuels and finished products from our customers in Europe," Jerry Wascom, the incoming president of ExxonMobil Refining & Supply Co., said in the statement. "This new unit, along with the recently completed 130 MW cogeneration unit and diesel hydrotreater at the Antwerp complex, reaffirms ExxonMobil as a leader in the European and global energy markets."

  • USA : Minnesota Regulators Side with Utility in Value-Of-Solar Case
    July 08, 2014
    Minnesota regulators on Thursday unanimously decided to take a pass on using the "value of solar" (VOS) to calculate how to pay community solar garden developers. Although the state's Public Utilities Commission did not move VOS pricing forward it did ask for interested parties to continue to add commentary prior to its Oct. 1 meeting concerning potential changes to the VOS rate.

  • USA : The Navigant Research Report - Industrial Combined Heat and Power Fuel Cell, Engine, and Turbine Technologies for Cogeneration in Industrial Applications: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts'
    July 07, 2014
    Analyzes the global market potential for industrial CHP systems for a range of industrial applications - refineries, pulp and paper mills, food processing facilities, etc. - using technologies such as turbines, internal combustion engines, fuel cells, and Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) engines. The study includes in-depth assessments of 10 leading countries for the installation of industrial CHP systems and provides an outlook for increased fuel switching to natural gas. Global market forecasts for installed capacity and revenue, segmented by region, country, and scenario, extend through 2023. The report also examines the key market drivers and barriers related to industrial CHP and the main industry players engaged in this market. The cost of the report is discounted for WADE members.

  • USA : Omnitek Natural Gas Conversion Will Use 100 Percent Biogas
    July 03, 2014
    Omnitek Engineering Corp. will be fulfilling an order for a biogas-powered power generator unit that National Raisin Co. Inc. will be deploying in the San Joaquin Valley region of California.

    Omnitek, which focuses on diesel-to-natural gas engine conversion systems and related products, will provide its natural gas conversion technology for the 250 kW stationary combined heat and power (CHP) unit. The biogas to power the generator will be derived from an anaerobic digester process capable of producing an estimated 100,000 cubic feet of renewable natural gas per day from the farm's liquid waste.

  • USA : Criticism of Utilities for Fixing Stand-By Rate Prohibitive to CHP
    July 01, 2014
    The barriers often imposed on combined heat and power by utilities in the US was highlighted again this week when a college in the state of Iowa ruled out using the technology as a result of prohibitive rate policies.Midwest Energy News reports that Luther College in Iowa has been forced to shelve its plans to adopt CHP as a means of cutting energy consumption. The college were interested in the installation of a 1.4 MW gas turbine, which would generate half the electricity used on the campus each year. The same system was to be used for combined heat and power purposes.

  • USA : Power Plant Operations Threatened by Russia-Based Malware
    July 01, 2014
    A US online security group has detected a cybercrime operation that poses a serious potential threat to power plant operations in Europe and America.

    The group have uncovered the "Energetic Bear" malware operated by a state-backed group with early indications suggesting origination in Russia. The organisation behind the cyber attack is believed to have compromised the computer systems of more than 1,000 organisations in 84 countries in a campaign spanning 18 months. The malware is similar to the Stuxnet computer programme created by the US and Israel that succeeded in infecting and sabotaging Iran's uranium enrichment facilities two years ago.

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : City Signs Pact for New Heat and Power at Rec Center
    July 01, 2014
    A new power source will soon keep the Dublin Community Recreation Center running. Dublin City Council members last week approved a contract with IGS Energy and Hull Associates for combined heat and power service at the recreation center. Natural gas will provide 60 percent of the power to the recreation center with a combined heat and power system for the next 15 years, per the lease approved by council last week.

    "A major benefit of this technology will be the ability to utilize 'waste' heat from the engine to assist in providing the hot water needed to heat much of the DCRC in the winter and the pools year round," the staff report to council stated.

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : ENER-G Launches New CHP Service
    June 24, 2014
    UK-based ENER-G has launched a new service managing compliance and certification for the Combined Heat and Power Quality Assurance programme (CHPQA). This certification is required as qualification for a raft of government incentives, particularly exemption from Climate Change Levy (CCL).

    ENER-G says it has launched the programme as data shows that almost one in six UK CHP customers are failing to register for CHPQA and hence are losing substantial financial benefits.

  • Malaysia : Siemens-led Consortium Wins Petronas Cogeneration Project
    June 24, 2014
    Siemens and MMC Engineering Services has secured a contract from Petronas to construct the 1200 MW Pengerang co-generation plant (PCP) in Malaysia. Siemens will build the plant featuring four cogeneration units with each comprising an H class gas turbine and a waste-heat recovery steam generator. Each unit will also have a steam turbine, associated mechanical and electrical systems and an instrumentation and control system.

    After completion, the plant will have the capacity to produce about 1,480 tonnes per hour of steam for the Petronas Pengerang integrated complex (PIC) development in Pengerang, Southern Johor, Malaysia.
