CHPmobile for the operation at several sites

To make cogeneration profitable also for objects which do not need enough heat in summer (e.g. schools) or make a long pause in the winter (e.g. outdoor swimming pools), we have invented the CHPmobile with our customer in the 1990’s. In this configuration, our cogeneration units are mounted on a trailer.

How a CHPmobile can be employed is BHKWmobil Transport-BHKWshown e.g. by the Stadtwerke (public utilities) of Bad Homburg: In springtime, the CHPmobile is driven ca. 1 km to the Freibad (public outdoors swimming pool) Waldmohr (german article (336 kB)). The staff connects the CHPmobile inside a garage to the onsite pipe connections and the mains. Transportation and connection require ca. 1 hour, after that the CHPmobile is ready to operate. When the outdoors pool closes in autumn, the CHPmobile is driven to the school of Waldmohr (Rothenfeldschule) and continues operation there.

The high utilization achieved this way increases the profitability and the ecological gain of the CHP unit. The travelling does in no way impair the lifetime of a CHP unit: The very first mobile CHP unit had started operation in Hiddenhausen in 1995, has been awarded in 1996 by the former minister for environment Angela Merkel with the price of the German gas industry and operated for 20 years in its sites in Hiddenhausen and Herford.

Configuration options

Emergency power operation

More power supply safety: Our CHP units can be equipped to provide emergency power in case of a mains failure or blackout.

Configuration options

Steam generation from the exhaust heat

Together with an external steam generation heat exchanger the CHP unit can produce steam from its exhaust heat.

Configuration options

Hot cooling
with 95/80 °C

The heat of a 'hot cooler' compact CHP unit can e.g. be used to power an absorption chiller for trigeneration.

Configuration options

Zero feed-in control

The zero feed-in control can make effectively stop power from being fed into the public mains by regulating the CHP unit's power production.

Configuration options

Heat storage (buffer)

CHP surplus heat can be stored in a heat storage and ceded when it's needed to achieve a smoother and longer CHP utilization rate.
