Finning supplies CHP solution to pharmaceuticals maker

Janssen Pharmaceuticals, part of Johnson & Johnson, has installed a new combined heat and power (CHP) system at its facility in Ireland to support its various on-site production processes.

In an effort to reduce its energy bills, Janssen specified an on-site CHP solution, which serves as the prime source of power for the facility. In addition, the heat, which is produced as a byproduct, is used to produce steam and low-temperature hot water (LTHW) for use in its drug manufacture.
The CHP system, supplied by Finning Power Systems, features a containerised Caterpillar G3512E gas engine with an electrical output of 1 MWe. It also includes an exhaust gas boiler that produces up to 625 kg/h of steam and an LTHW recovery system generating up to 569 kWt.

The project’s scope also included the supply and installation of a purpose-built boiler house, as well as a transformer to step up power from 400 V to 11 kV. The installation has been designed to allow interfacing with the site’s existing high-voltage ring infrastructure.

In addition to the CHP system design, supply and installation, Finning carried out full commissioning and testing before completion of the project, and will continue to provide ongoing support including servicing, genuine spare parts and remote monitoring.
