SOKRATHERM presents at Hannover Messe 2015 the compact CHP unit GG 402 from the extended product range

On this year’s Hannover Messe (13.-17. April) on the B.KWK / ZVEI stand Decentralized Energy Supply in hall 27(J50) we will present from our extended product range of 50 – 500 kW the compact CHP unit GG 402.

It is roughly 30-40 % smaller than conventional CHP units with comparable capacity and therefore the world’s most compact CHP unit of the 400 kW class. On a floor space of 4.55 m² it generates 405 kW electric and 538 kW thermal power with a total efficiency of over 90 %.

This CHP type has proven itself in roughly one hundred CHP projects in Europe and South America, for example at the Max-Planck-Institute in Göttingen (Germany), at DePuy Orthopeadics in Ringaskiddy (Ireland), in the AquaPark Kiev (Ukraine) and in the Hospital Clínico de Magallanes in Punta Arenas (Chile). Besides the generation of heat and power, this CHP type has also been customized in several projects for steam generation, thermal oil heating and -as a „hot cooler“ – for building cooling with absorption chillers.

Additionally to the established delivery chart, now CHP units with new MAN engines are available. For natural gas powered CHP units, these inlcude two modern aspirating engines which reach over 92 % total efficiency (up to 38 % electric) as well as a new turbo engine with 40 % electric efficiency. The enlarged product line makes it easier to match the object’s energy needs exactly. Also the range of sewage gas / biogas powered CHP unit types has been extended by CHP units of the 500 kW class. The new delivery charts for natural gas and sewage gas / biogas powered CHP units with the most important data are ready for download.

With the integrated iPC control system, our CHP units can be monitored remotely to the full extent and integrated into virtual power plants. To balance the fluctuating power production from wind and sun, they can be turned on/off and regulated on partial load very quickly.

All visitors are welcome to gather more information at the SOKRATHERM stand about our new products and discuss their possible applications. By sending an E-Mail to info|at|, invitation codes for free admittance to the fair can also be requested.
