With traditional power generation, electricity and thermal energy are produced separately using two different processes and fuel sources– conventional fossil fuels are used to generate the electricity and, in most cases, the heat produced as a byproduct to this process is lost to the atmosphere. Then an on-site boiler or furnace is used to generate heat. Cogeneration, also known as combined heat and power (CHP), is a highly efficient process that generates electricity and heat simultaneously. By utilizing the heat from the engine cooling circuits and exhaust gas, useful heat can be generated in a heat exchanger which can then be used in any number of applications, all with no additional fuel consumption.
As a result, the overall efficiency of CHP systems can exceed 80 percent, making CHP one of the most energy-efficient methods of power generation. Typical industries with electricity and thermal energy demand are, for example, Food Industry, Chemical Industry, Paper Industry, Textile Industrie. Ceprot’s generator sets are built for efficiency, durability, and longevity, and provide reliable power for continuous and intermittent power applications. Our generators sets are designed for power production in island or parallel mode with other generators and/or the grid and covers a power range from 37 to 550 kW.
