Eastern Wholesale Fence
560 kW CCHP
PROJECT AT A GLANCE
Powergen is providing the construction of a new Trigeneration installation for this 24/7 manufacturing facility as part of an ongoing strategic partnership.
Trigeneration system includes a 560 kW generator unit with heat recovery to be integrated into the facility thermal and electrical loads to lower the cost of energy and thermal/carbon footprint. The CHP will run off natural gas provided by the local Utility.
The partners of Powergen are responsible for the engineering of the cogeneration system for the facility. This installation includes one (1) 560 kW natural gas driven reciprocating cogeneration unit with associated heat recovery. Jacket water from the cogens will be used for heat recovery to supplement domestic hot water production and heat during the winter season.
Costs will be partially offset with supplemental funding from a state agency called NYSERDA. In addition, the engineering team demonstrated attractive economic payback due to the substantial energy cost savings through on-site power generation and coincident heat generation as well as favorable tax treatment incentives.
