G-GEN™ CHPs fire into life at Fareham

Twin G-GEN™ 50kW plus CHP engines have fired into life in Fareham following a successful installation by the GET-IM team .

The busy Holiday Inn just of the A27 in Fareham has joined the Energy Revolution with the installation of twin 50kW plus CHP engines which will utilise mains gas to generate electricity which will replace the hotels’ baseload that would otherwise have come from the mains grid. Additionally, the heat produced by the CHP engine (a by-product of the generation process) will feed directly into the Hotel’s LTHW system.

Up to 65% of all mains power is lost during transportation. When power is generated on-site through a G-GEN™ CHP engine this waste is immediately eradicated, making the engine more efficient than mains power before the benefit of the heat. Furthermore, when combined with a biomethane gas supply, then the humble G-GEN™ CHP becomes one of the most efficient, and environmentally friendly sources of heat and power available, next to solar. However, taking into account output vs size and cost, then G-GEN™ CHP probably takes the top spot.
