Thank you very much for helping us out of a hole a couple of weekends ago with supply of the emergency generator and please pass on my thanks to Doug as well. We had 300+ guests in the suites on the Sunday and all their food was in 2 chiller trailers that would have all gone in the bin!!

Very happy with your company, we have a lot of power outages where we are and your generators have never failed to start, been excellent and the service is good. Don’t worry I would never think of going anywhere else when other project arise.

Challenges of CHP Sizing

There is always a tendency for CHP to be oversized, especially when the selection is based on thermal output. This leads to reductions in annual running time, and considerable loss of financial saving for the client. In extreme cases it can lead to physical damage due to excessive shutdowns and failures.

CHP versus other renewable energy sources

When there is such a range of energy-saving and carbon reduction technologies available, it may often be difficult to decide amongst them. It is true to say that each individual technology should be considered on its own merits, and the services of a specialist consultant may be required in order to manage the performance and financial assessments that are part of this process.

Answering your CHP questions at UK AD & Biogas 2014 – Stand A061

What is a CHP system? What are the real benefits of using CHP systems? Are they suitable for all buildings? Where do they prove most efficient?

We will be answering these and other questions on power solutions and CHP at this years UK AD & Biogas event , showcasing our Gas Combined Heat and Power System – Power Therm.
CHP systems can drastically lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint; they also have the capability to run fully independent from the electricity grid. Read more »

What is CHP?

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is the simultaneous production of heat and electricity from a single fuel source, usually at the point of use.

With a CHP system a fuel (usually natural gas) is used to drive a reciprocating engine, delivering electricity from the alternator. At the same time the heat produced by the engine working, is captured from various sources (for example from the exhaust system and engine cooling circuits) to produce hot water. On some models heat is also recovered from the alternator and engine oil, further increasing efficiency.
Typically a CHP will produce up to twice the amount of heat energy as the electricity it generates. Read more »

Tues, April 22, 2014 – Strategic Project Manager

I would like to thank Roland and Roy for their continued help with this project and the engineers who have visited for the duct fitting and commissioning…
…I realise it has been a very intensive project in terms of overall value versus the amount of communications required – (my email records stretch to over 600 on this one!) – so I really appreciate all the help.

Structure your team by ensuring your selected member’s skills match the areas of responsibility. Below is a list of the key team members required and what they should be responsible for. In every case, there should be a primary and secondary member, both of whom will need to be equally briefed. Read more »
