YANMAR CHP MODELS
HOW DOES CHP WORK?
YANMAR’s Combined Heat and Power system uses an internal combustion engine, powered by clean natural gas or propane, to produce both heat and electric power. The unit efficiently utilizes up to 88% of the fuel burn versus 33% burn rate of conventional, from-the-grid sources.
CHP applications involve the recovery of wasted engine heat to produce useful thermal energy and electricity. To do this, natural gas or propane fuel is combusted in a YANMAR engine to generate electricity, and the heat that is normally lost in the engine’s exhaust system is recovered to provide heat for hot water (example: laundry or dish washing) or for space heating, cooling and dehumidification.CHP can be used in almost every state, and is mainly found in areas with high concentrations of commercial activity, high electricity prices and energy policies that favor Combined Heat and Power.
CHP is ideally suited for facilities that have a high demand for heat (a high thermal load) in areas where electricity costs more than $0.10 per kilowatt-hour.
With YANMAR CHP’s blackout start option, you can ensure your heat and electricity remain uninterrupted even during a blackout. High efficiency inverters convert YANMAR CHP’s generated electrical output into DC voltage and frequency with built-in protection and a synchronization device required for grid interconnections.
As electric prices continue to increase, you can benefit from significant utility bill cost savings by switching to abundant natural gas or propane.
Gives you options
By using a YANMAR CHP system as your primary power source, you are no longer solely reliant on the grid for your company’s viability or personal comfort. You now have the option to have power when the grid fails or in remote areas not currently served.
By using energy efficiently, your carbon footprint can be reduced by as much as 50% over conventional means. According to U.S. EPA CHP Partnership calculations, a YANMAR 10kW CHP heat and power system can reduce enough greenhouse gases to offset the carbon footprint of seven cars on U.S. roads.
YANMAR CHP Units are reliably quiet.
- 54dB(A) CP5WN
- 56dB(A) CP10WN
- 64dB(A) CP35D1
Easy to Install
YANMAR’s comprehensive technical training curriculum develops certified technicians prepared in all phases of design, installation, commissioning and service.
By utilizing a highly efficient engine and capturing nearly all of the remaining energy as heat, the heat and power producing YANMAR CHP system can be up to 2.6 times as efficient as your current centralized power.
