Combined Heat And Power
Conventional electricity generation is about 40% fuel-efficient; by making use of the heat produced as a by-product this efficiency increases to over 75%.
Finning has a global reputation for developing Combined Heat and Power (CHP) solutions that are durable, economic and reliable. Using highly efficient heat exchangers to harvest heat from the engine block water jacket, oil coolers and exhaust gases to produce hot water or steam. This can then be used for heating, absorption chilling or other processes.
Finning is a leading supplier of biogas and low-energy fuel generators, providing cutting edge solutions for the generation of power from landfill, anaerobic digester, sewage, animal waste and mine gases.
Their track record for producing power generation from sewerage biogas is second to none, with projects completed for a number of UK and overseas water utilities. Finning also have extensive experience of producing energy from waste for landfill operators.
Typically, when producing energy from landfill waste, operators need more than 90% gas engine uptime, so remote monitoring is an increasingly important part of a full repair and maintenance agreement. For this Finning use a PC based operating and data gathering system - LIMA - which provides both remote and on-site control and monitoring over all engine systems, so that you get rapid action when you need it.
