The system will operate on biogas generated by the anaerobic digestion of cow manure from the facility’s more than 2,500 Holsteins.

The installation is MTU Onsite Energy’s first fully engineered anaerobic digestion biogas CHP system in North America.

The MTU Onsite Energy 8V 4000 GS CHP system produces 763 kilowatts of electricity (kWe) and 2.4 million BTUs of heat per hour, which will meet a significant proportion of the continuous electricity and climate control demands of the facility’s new state-of-the-art milking parlor. The CHP will help Statz Farms offset operating costs and help reduce overall energy usage by up to 42 per cent.
