Configuration of 2 MWe IC Engine Based CHP System


Nexterra's next-generation power generation systems can provide clean, reliable syngas suitable for firing in high-efficiency internal combustion engines designed for stationary power/CHP applications. This high-efficiency power/CHP solution is ideal for District Energy Plants and Independent Power Producers where power prices are particularly high and where efficiency is a critical consideration. The first 2 MWe demonstration of this system was installed at the University of British Columbia in 2012. Nexterra also completed over 3,000 hours of operation of this system at a 239 kWe scale at its Product Development Centre.
