MiMA - 526 kW CoGen (CHP)
PROJECT AT A GLANCE
Cogeneration plant installation at this luxurious condominium located in the heart of Manhattan.
Cogeneration system includes two (2) 263kW units with heat recovery and gas booster system.
Project construction cost approx. $1.8 million.
Construction completed in 2016.
Powergen was contracted to build the plant for the Project Prime who was responsible for providing the engineering for the cogeneration system at MiMA.
The Project Prime's engineering team designed a 526 kW rooftop combined heat and power (CHP) plant for installation on a setback rooftop. This installation significantly reduced the facility carbon footprint by thousands of tons per year
This complex installation includes a total of two (2) 263kW natural gas driven reciprocating generators with associated heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs). Jacket water from the generators is also being used for heat recovery to supplement domestic hot water production. Construction of dunnage and support steel for a rooftop structure for the new CHP plant is also included.
Low-pressure gas is available at street level, so a gas booster installation is also included in the basement gas room to supply the generators with required gas pressure.
The engineering team demonstrated attractive economic payback due to the substantial energy cost savings through on-site power generation and coincident heat generation.
