The YANMAR CHP unit’s reliable power ensured that there was no need to install a diesel generator, as the CHP power units provided all the heat and power necessary. CHP technology is a more cost-effective option, as well as being a more environmentally conscious option.
K3 Cat Ski recently built an exclusive on-mountain lodge. The lodge does not have commercial power access. The area is a well-known ski resort area with a high tourist volume, offering ski and snowboarding options across the entire mountain with varied terrains. This makes it a key location for K3 Cat Ski company.
K3 Cat Ski needed an on-site, reliable, energy source to provide reliable power and heat for their ski resort. This power needed to be quiet, in order to not disrupt their guest’s vacation experiences.
YANMAR’s CP10WN-SPB x 1 – 10kW CHP and CP5WN-SPB x 1 – 5 kW CHP propane gas models, installed by Calgary-based company Co-genergy, provided the quiet, consistent, heat and power that K3 Cat Ski required.
These model’s reliable power ensured that there was no need to install a diesel generator, as the CHP power units provided all the heat and power necessary. CHP technology is a more cost-effective option, as well as being a more environmentally conscious option. The heat and power provided by CHP units allows for reliable energy despite the harsh weather conditions at their ski resort.
