Where power is consumed, heat is often required as well. The processing industries use thermal energy for heating and drying or to produce steam. And in many regions of the world, the warmth in our very own homes is generated in centralized facilities. Producing both power and useful heat in a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant is the most cost-efficient way to cover these requirements. Explore Combined Heat and Power by Siemens and learn how you can achieve your energy goals at much lower costs while keeping emissions to the environment to a minimum.
Gain insights from Udo Brockmaier, chairman of utility Stadtwerke Düsseldorf in Germany who run our record-breaking power plant “Lausward Fortuna.” In this interview, he explains how CHP assures its extraordinary profitability.
At Siemens, we have a proven track record of providing best-in-class products, solutions, and services for CHP. This is demonstrated by hundreds of cogeneration plants worldwide based on our expertise – first and foremost, our flagship plant Lausward Fortuna in Düsseldorf that set the world records for net efficiency, heating capacity, and electrical output. From single gas and steam turbines or heat recovery steam generators to full turnkey installations: The same commitment is iterated in all of our projects around the globe, bringing out the best in Combined Heat and Power.
Wherever heat is required for either industrial processing and/or public supply, Combined Heat and Power plants are a viable and beneficial alternative. Ideally, the thermal output of a cogeneration system is matched to the user’s heat demand, and with our long-lasting experience in devising custom solutions for power production, we have all the necessary capabilities to meet your exact requirements. Whether you grow vegetables or heat cities – with our proven product range for CHP, including a wide selection of steam and gas turbines as well as our exhaustive portfolio of services, we can give just the right answers to your energy challenges of tomorrow.
In Combined Heat and Power, the waste heat produced in a plant facility is utilized in other industrial processes, extracted to cover the heat demand of individual buildings, or exported to a district heating system. CHP plants are typically based on gas and/or steam turbines in simple or combined cycle configuration. In simple cycle, the waste heat generated by a gas turbine is captured in a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) or waste heat recovery boiler (WHRB) and used for heating or to produce process steam. In combined cycle CHP it is initially used to fuel a second turbine producing additional power.
