Trigeneration, or combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP), is the production of electricity, heat and cooling all from a single source. The heat and electricity are produced by the normal operation of the combined heat and power (CHP) unit, and an absorption chiller is used as a means of producing chilled water from the heat output of the CHP.
Trigeneration is mainly used in infrastructure where there is a continuous or seasonal cooling demand to produce air conditioning and refrigeration. Its application is a cost effective and low carbon method of producing heat and cooling from the CHP.
The high electrical efficiency available from the MWM gas engine range makes it ideally suited for the application of CHP. This combined with our fully inclusive maintenance package and proven track record will provide the maximum energy savings and long term operational benefits to our clients.
