Gas and Diesel Engines
EGB and partners specialize in the design and manufacturing of gas and diesel engines for various applications. Dependent on project requirements one can choose from a wide range of generator sets with and without heat recovery and co-generation.
The generator sets are designed for power production in island or parallel mode with other generators and or utilities.
Applications and installations vary from hospitals, resorts, biogas plants, municipal district heating etc. where power and or heat is required.
Power by Cogeneration
Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) systems are configured to produce both electricity and useful heat. Our systems utilize heat produced during the combustion of the gas in the engine and facilitate process efficiencies of more than 90%. This efficient form of energy conversion achieves primary energy savings of roughly 40% by using a gas engine cogeneration system as opposed to separate electricity and heat generation equipment. Cogeneration plants are typically embedded close to the end user and therefore help reduce transportation and distribution losses.
Power by Trigeneration
Trigeneration or combined heat power and cooling (CHPC) systems take the concept of cogeneration to the next level. Trigeneration systems produce electricity along with useful heat and cooling water. Here the heat recovered from the engine is used in absorption chillers. These heat driven chillers are able to provide cold water for utilization in air conditioning systems or for process water.
Combining a CHP or cogeneration plant with an absorption refrigeration system allows utilization of seasonal excess heat for cooling. The hot water from the cooling circuit of the plant serves as drive energy for the absorption chiller. The hot exhaust gas from the gas engine can also be used as an energy source for steam generation, which can then be utilized as an energy source for a highly efficient, double-effect steam chiller. Up to 80% of the thermal output of the cogeneration plant is thereby converted to chilled water.
Wind turbines use the wind to drive turbines directly. They have huge blades mounted on a tall tower. The blades are connected to a ‘nacelle’, or housing, which contains gears linked to a generator. As the wind blows, it transfers some of its kinetic energy to the blades, which turn and drive a generator. Deployed to supplement on and off-grid applications with battery storage.
Solar Panel Systems also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy using PV cells. These cells don’t need direct sunlight to work. They can still generate electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run appliances. Can be extensively deployed to supplement on-grid generation or for off-grid applications with battery storage.
