Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

Caterpillar Combined Heat and Power Systems

Caterpillar® combined heat and power (CHP) technology provides a clean and reliable solution for generating power and thermal energy. Saving on electrical and heating costs directly affects your bottom line. Get more out of every dollar you spend on energy costs and simplify your power generation and heating and cooling installations for even more benefit.

Caterpillar Power Generation Systems offers fully engineered combined heat and power generators, engines and other solutions. By combining these two functions, you get a clean, efficient and reliable approach to generating power and thermal energy from a single fuel source. Cat® combined heat and power systems offer considerable environmental benefits when compared with purchased electricity and onsite-generated heat. Thanks to the intelligent engineering that goes into every Cat CHP, you get more hours of service between service and maintenance intervals and experience less downtime.

By utilizing the heat byproduct of electricity generation, Cat CHP generators can be designed to meet the thermal and electrical base loads of a facility. Cat CHP systems are integrated so that waste heat is recovered and used for heating, cooling, dehumidification and other processing applications. This advanced technology decreases energy costs and increases efficiency by up to 90%. Less fuel needs to be consumed to generate the same amount of energy, resulting in fewer emissions.

Please contact 732-885-3040 if you need additional information. We will answer all your questions and explain more about the advantages of choosing a top quality, high-performance Caterpillar CHP to combine your heat and power generation into one reliable system.
