Who Benefits From Cogeneration

Cogeneration can be applied in any structures where heating or cooling is necessary:

  • hospitals and clinics
  • retirement homes
  • hospitality
  • spas
  • hortaculture
  • supermarkets
  • swimming pools and aqua parks
  • shopping malls
  • industrial establishments
  • municipal heating plants, etc.
Combined Production of Heat and Power

The combined production of heat and power, or cogeneration, is the method of electric power generation during which the heat created during the manufacturing process is utilized efficiently. This results in a very high efficiency when the energy in the fuel is being used. The small-sized and medium-sized CHP units are mostly designed on the basis of gas-combustion engines. The engine rotates and drives the generator. The heat from engine cooling and from exhaust gases is used for heating, hot water preparation, and other purposes. The power produced in CHP unit can either be exploited for internal needs or supplied to the power grid. In certain cases, CHP unit can also have a role as a backup source of power in case of power outage.

Compact Machines with High Efficiency

Installation or replacement of technology in technical rooms of existing buildings pose a frequent problem, mainly because of the reduced accessibility. TEDOM took these obstacles into account when developing the Micro CHP unit. Th e design is compact and literally fi ts anywhere. As a result, the installation is quick and does not incur any signifi cant extra costs. Even the follow-up service of CHP units does not require much space.

Image
Maximum Utilization of Energy in Fuel

A Lot of Energy Under the Small-Sized Sound Enclosure
The Micro series CHP units have a total efficiency of over 95 %. The water-cooled generator has a major role in this. If an additional condensing exchanger is used, the efficiency will exceed 100 %.

Long Service Life
Smart conception and first-rate processing together with regular maintenance guarantees the life of CHP units tens of thousands of working hours.

Low Demands for Space
The compact dimensions and low demands for the service area allows installation of the CHP unit into confined rooms and non-ventilated areas. Due to the rotatable control panel, the CHP units can fit through most doors which makes their installation in existing buildings much easier.

Easily Accessible Components
The easily accessible sound enclosure allows trouble-free access to all the CHP unit's components. This feature shortens the time necessary for a possible service intervention and this is favourably reflected in its price.

 
 
Easy Installation

Plug & Play
The "all-in-one" design allows very easy connection of the CHP unit into the building's heating system. Due to the water-cooled generator, the CHP unit does not need ventilation. This makes complex construction modifications unnecessary.

Automatic Operation
Due to the sophisticated control system, a CHP unit operates on a completely automatic basis. If the actual CHP unit status needs to be checked from time to time, it’s as simple as taking a look at the control display to see the actual condition of the CHP unit. Additionally, TEDOM CHP units can be connected to the Internet to control their operation remotely through a computer or smartphone.

Low operation noise levels
Because of the tightly sealed sound enclosure, the CHP unit operation is very quiet even in close proximity.

Adjustable Power Control Panel
The separate control panel allows for an individual positioning layout, depending on how the CHP unit is positioned. This layout also protects sensitive electronic components against the heat generated by the engine.

It Will Adapt to Your Needs

Predominantly, you will fi nd Cento CHP units in buildings with a high energy demand, for example, hospitals, schools, hotels, aqua parks or conference centres. Intelligent structure, variable design and a wide output range - it is these features that allow for installation of our CHP units wherever needed. It could very well be the local aqua park or school where our CHP units supply power and heat.

Image

Version Options

Open Module

The CHP unit is one with a simple design and its own control panel that needs no special ventilation. You can access all of its components very easily - this makes a service intervention much simpler. It is ideal for installation into a sound-proof machine room. Above all, it is cheaper than our other versions.

Image
Container

A CHP unit, as well as with any other equipment, can be placed cooperatively into a metal or concrete container. This version is intended for outdoor installations and therefore has several advantages:

  • the container protects the CHP unit from ad verse weather conditions
  • a maximum of 3 cogeneration modules can be placed in one container
  • the container colours can be modified to adapt the container to adjacent installations
 
 
Sound Enclosure

The sound enclosure that encases the CHP unit is internally modified so that it absorbs the motor generator noises to the maximum extent possible and at the same time protects the CHP unit components from impurities and damage. This version is intended for installations in buildings.

Focused on Output

For the Municipal and Industrial Power Engineering
The Quanto series CHP units are frequently employed in district heating (CHS) systems where the heat from CHP unit is supplied to the heat distribution system and the power from cogeneration is sold to the electrical system. In addition, the Quanto CHP units are frequently employed in supplying industrial facilities with power and heat. Given their output, they may have a significant role in the support of power engineering services, for example, as a flexible supplement for renewable sources of energy. They are also important in the area of spare energy sources or in facilities that operate in an island mode.

"Turn Key" Projects

The installation of a separate CHP unit into a machine room is often a mere sub-stage of the entire power engineering project. As a cogeneration technology manufacturer, we also provide our customers with "turn-key projects". This means that, besides the supply of CHP units, we also ensure reconstruction or development of the district heating facilities, corporate energy centres, etc.

Optional Versions

We provide our customers with the Quanto CHP units in the three basic versions. As a solution for buildings, we offer a version in a sound enclosure where individual technological elements are assembled in our production facility to be dispatched as a whole. When placing a CHP unit into a sound-proof machine room, the version without an acoustic shell is often sufficient. The container versions where the complete cogeneration technology is installed in a container are specifically designed for the outside environment.
