CHP to power and cool US government HQ

The US is to install a combined heat and power (CHP) plant at a government headquarters building in Washington, DC.

The plant will run on two microturbines from Capstone Turbine, a C800 and a C200, which are planned to provide a combined 1 MW of power to help offset the building’s electrical load. In addition, heat recovered from the exhaust system will generate 315 tonnes of chilled water for use in the building’s cooling system.

Commissioning is expected later this year, according to Capstone’s mid-Atlantic and southeastern US distributor E-Finity Distributed Generation.

E-Finity said its team was able to configure the installation in order to meet limited space requirements, with the two microturbines side by side.
