Mini-CHP covers the needs of the industry and brings additional profit

Mini-CHP based on INNIO Jenbacher gas engines can be installed for two tasks: providing the company with the necessary energy, as well as selling energy for additional profit. Reciprocating Gas Units in industry often serve to generate electricity. Although the capabilities of such complexes are much broader and more diverse: CHP plants can produce heat, cold and are used for air conditioning. In addition, INNIO Jenbacher allows you to install multiple units, that is, several blocks. Then, the accuracy of power control is increased and it becomes possible to regulate the level of power generation in a mobile manner. At the same time, the same efficiency is ensured as for a large plant.  


Trigeneration - generation of useful energy all year round

Trigeneration - the generation of electricity, heat and cold - allows you to maintain the high efficiency of mini-CHP all year round. In summer, when the facilities do not need heating, the CHP generates cold water and cold needed in the industry. Add the function of cold production by connecting a trigeneration plant.

The combination of a machinery for generating heat and electricity with a trigeneration plant for cold makes it possible to use the power of a CHP plant more efficiently. After all, the excess heat is used for cooling down process. Hot water obtained by cooling of the plant, serves as driving energy for an absorption chiller. And engine exhaust is used to produce steam, which becomes the source of energy for the desuperheater dual action. As a result, up to 80% of thermal power of the CHP can be used for cooling water.

Using a trigeneration plant increases the average annual efficiency of the station to 75%.


The benefits of using mini-CHP in industry

  • Efficiency up to 85%.
  • Independence from state systems and tariffs.
  • Absence of costs for the construction of supply and distribution networks.CHP is being built near the facilities
  • Low investment costs, the ability to regulate capacity.
  • Work at peak loads, reliability of the system.
  • The simplicity and ease of operation, compactness and smart design.
