When a leading industrial gas manufacturer was considering a new production facility, they contacted Genplant to design an energy plant solution that would meet their phased growth needs and provide more cost-effective, reliable electricity to support new production of liquid oxygen, nitrogen and CO2.
Genplant designed a natural gas-fueled CHP plant that delivers up to 1.5 MW of electricity and produces both steam and hot water. The CO2 from the plant's exhaust is recovered and converted into beverage-quality CO2.
Because CHP plant operates independently from the utility electric grid, it has built-in redundancy for electricity production and can operate on diesel and/or propane as an alternative to natural gas.
As part of our scope of services, Genplant designed the LNG station and supplied all CHP-related equipment.
By implementing Genplant's on-site energy solution, our client achieved significant capital expenditure savings as well as operational expenditure savings of more than 50% compared to using grid-provided electricity and traditional steam, hot water and CO2 production.
