On-Site Energy


Reducing energy costs and powering new factory


Sector: Fish processing

Technology: Combined Heat and Power (3.0MW)

The Challenge: Shortage of power for new factory extension, as well ageing steam infrastructure.

The Solution: 2 x 1.5MW CHP (ready for 100% hydrogen), combining their high-grade waste heat to supply 300C thermal oil to heat a primary thermal oil circuit, used for frying, and mitigating gas usage. Low-grade heat is used for tray washing, delivering further cost savings. The project has allowed the site to meet its increased power demand, and pay less-than grid prices for their thermal and electrical energy.
