2 x EM33NG CHP units
2019 saw Helec supply and commission 2 x EM33NG Combined Heat & Power Units into Polden Corner, a newly built accommodation block housing 200 students within the campus of the University of Bath.
The 2 off 33kWe CHP units are configured to operate as Primary & Secondary units in order to deliver consistent thermal energy via the charged thermal stores on to the buildings LTHW & CH plate heat exchangers.
The Primary Energimizer (Smartblock is its German factory name) BR18 Control Panel monitors both CHPs flow & return temperatures in order to rotate the units operating hours, when and if required, and also to be able to modulate down the CHP ouput in order to run a single CHP unit during low load demands. This in turn maintains close operating hours between the units so as to not stress one units operation over another.
