Rolls-Royce will deliver two MTU Onsite Energy natural gas-fueled combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) trigeneration systems to Richmond University Medical Center, a Level I trauma center in Staten Island, New York (USA).

The trigeneration project is being managed by Innovative Energy Strategies (IES) and is part of a multi-million dollar facility expansion adding a substantial increase in the center  capacity. As one of two Level I trauma centers on Staten Island, Richmond University Medical Center recognized the importance of alternative power supply solutions, especially after experiencing the devastation of Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

Stewart & Stevenson Power Products – Atlantic Division, an authorized MTU Onsite Energy distributor (part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems) , won a competitive bid to customize, supply, and deliver the two-natural gasfueled CCHP trigeneration systems.

“After we evaluated the equipment, installation and maintenance requirements for the project, IES selected MTU because of the fuel conversion efficiency and the extended maintenance periods that significantly reduce the total cost of ownership,” said Marty

Borruso, principal at IES. “Another major factor was the ability of the MTU engines to operate on low pressure gas, this feature is desirable in densely populated urban areas like New York City.”

Rated at 1,500 kWe each and guaranteeing performance under high ambient conditions, the CCHP units will provide clean and efficient continuous power to the 114-year-old trauma center. The two 50,000-pound units will be housed in a former laundry facility adjacent to the hospital, which has been renovated to comply with sound attenuation rules and regulations. The units will quietly blend into the background sounds of what is a highly concentrated residential area and will be protected inside the structure from external conditions.

“MTU Onsite Energy is a long-time partner to critical care facilities like the Richmond University Medical Center,” said Christian Mueller, senior sales engineer at MTU Onsite Energy. “These kinds of facilities have a year-round, 24/7 uptime obligation to patients, and we keep that top-of-mind when developing cogeneration solutions. MTU Onsite Energy is proud to offer peace of mind with the promise of cooling, heating and power to trauma centers when they need it most.”

At its site in Puerto Rico, Lufthansa Technik uses clean energy obtained from biomass available in the region: Lufthansa Technik Puerto Rico and ENTRADE has signed a comprehensive energy supply contract. The first two trigeneration power plants (55 kW power; 100 kW refrigeration each) came into operation in May in 2×20-foot containers, which will be visually inconspicuous next to the two aircraft hangars at the state-of-the-art overhaul site. The key advantage for Lufthansa Technik is the reliable and on-demand energy supply that is replacing expensive power from diesel.

The facilities in the two aircraft hangars for five medium-range aircraft include a painting line. Excessive temperatures and the resulting failure of the power supply are extremely critical here. To date Lufthansa hasbeen using diesel generators to minimise the risk of power failures. The energy supply in Puerto Rico is comparatively expensive and is not 100% reliable. That’s why they were looking for a viable alternative.

 

The Type E3 power plants can be integrated into standard containers and operate with different kinds of biomass. In Puerto Rico, pellets based on waste wood produced in the region will initially be used as the fuel for environmentally friendly energy generation. The cooperation will involve investigating the scope for using aircraft waste (catering waste) directly from the airport. Catering waste currently has to be disposed of and this is very expensive.

At all Lufthansa Technik sites, both resource conservation and emission reduction play a major role in achieving corporate objectives. The emission-free ENTRADE power plants are the perfect fit – using fuels like waste wood direct from the surrounding area. From ENTRADE’s perspective, the close cooperation with Lufthansa Technik is a significant milestone. Cooperation talks are also in progress with representatives from the considerably larger site in Manila (Philippines).

E.ON is helping to make mineral water and soft drinks from Italy more climate friendly: Aqua Minerale San Benedetto, one of the world’s top producers of alcohol-free beverages, has put into service an innovative combined heat-and-power plant. With an output of 13.2 MW, the trigeneration plant located in Scorzè near Venice was planned, built, financed and operated by E.ON and will reduce energy costs by 15 percent and cut CO2 emissions by 17,300 tons.

 

 

E.ON’s partnership with Acqua Minerale San Benedetto, whose portfolio includes brands like Schweppes or Energade, began in 2014 with a comprehensive energy audit of existing production and planning for a new power plant.

The aim was to improve energy efficiency and reduce the environmental impact. As a result, the partners signed a long-term agreement to supply 100 GWh of electricity and 70 GWh of thermal energy, including steam and cooling water.
