USA: CHP plant in Wisconsin

Northern Power Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of Distributed Energy Systems Corp., has been selected by SC Johnson to engineer, build, and commission a USD 6 million turnkey combined heat and power (CHP) system that will provide critical load support for manufacturing operations at the company’s Waxdale Plant in Racine, Wisconsin. Major components of the new Northern system include a gas turbine/generator, a heat recovery steam generator, gas compressor system, proprietary microprocessor-based controls, power distribution equipment required for the cogeneration system loads and a 4750 square-foot building to house all major equipment. The system’s combustion turbine generators interface with the building’s electrical services/utility and deliver steam to the plant. Recovery of heat from the generator exhausts will produce about 19 000 pounds per hour of plant steam. The system will deliver substantial annual energy cost savings and support the manufacturer’s greenhouse gas-emission reduction goals.
