As pioneer and specialist in cogeneration we deliver ready-to-connect compact CHP units in the power range 50 to 550 kW which can be customized individually. SOKRATHERM offers tailored solutions for most diverse buildings like swimming pools, office buildings, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, prisons, industrial and commercial sites to district heating and residential areas. Our CHP units can also be equipped for emergency power operation, to produce steam, to heat up thermal oil or to power an absorption chiller for building climatisation. Their compact construction keeps the ways for engine power and combustion heat short to convert them most effectively into electricity and heat. The space required in the building is minimized as well as the expenditures to insert and connect the CHP unit.
After the ISO 9001 certified production of our CHP units individually tailored to the customer requirements follows a thorough check on the test bench and a first servicing. We deliver the CHP units ready to operate in a sound absorbing case with integrated switchgear cabinet so they can be commissioned very quickly. Their triple bearing makes sure that no vibrations are transmitted to the building. A separate baseplate therefore is not necessary in most cases.
Every compact CHP unit is delivered with the SOKRATHERM developed iPC control which is based on an industrial PC and not only surveils the fully automatic operation but also automatically adjusts to the current energy demand. Our self-developed systems can control several CHP units, boilers and heat storages for optimized operation. Our internet based remote monitoring RemoteManager makes the remote control of the whole CHP plant from a desktop workplace, via notebook or even by smartphone possible. A variety of interfaces secures the compatibility with other systems – from a building control system right up to the integration into virtual power plants.
