Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as "cogeneration" and "tri-generation", is an excellent solution for controlling energy costs while improving the reliability of power and thermal energy production for your facility. A CHP plant converts fuel (usually natural gas or propane) to electricity and thermal energy in the form of steam, hot water and/or chilled water.
IEM Power Systems deliver solutions that help utilize waste heat energy to generate 'green power' reducing utility costs and improving the facility's sustainability.
Our highly experienced engineering team will work with you to design the infrastructure that will safely and reliably, control and distribute the power generated by your co-generation or tri-generation system.
We offer both low voltage and medium voltage power hardware and control system software.
The tables below demonstrate the outputs associated with each IEM Power System GENn model.
Note how, natural gas and propane gas both provide high electrical and thermal efficiency for your facility.
Natural gas fueled systems deliver greater volumes of 210°C Hot water, chilled water and more electrical power, whilst comparable propane fuel systems require lower volumes of fuel (a possible issue in remote locations). Propane is also regarded as an even more environmentally sustainable fuel than natural gas. It is important to note that IEM Power Systems CHP systems have been designed to utilize the most favorable fuel available so that your facility can switch between them without further modification.
The following diagrams illustrate the integrated process employed to optimize energy use in a wide range of facilities.
Note that the outputs derived from a CHP System will depend upon the scope of the configuration employed.
The overall advantages of investing in a CHP solution will be lower energy costs and reduced environmental impact.
