Buderus launches CHP range

Buderus, one of the worlds most established heating technology brands and part of Bosch Thermotechnology, has boosted its UK portfolio of low-carbon commercial heating solutions with the launch of a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system.

CHP systems provide the simultaneous generation of electricity and usable heat from the same plant or appliance, which maximises efficiency and provides a low-cost supply of hot water and electricity.

Resulting in improved energy management and a more sustainable source of heat and power, the installation of a gas-fired Buderus CHP system can help make a significant contribution towards meeting sustainability targets and compliance with legislation. Organisations required to comply with the Government’s mandatory Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) can also benefit from a reduced requirement to purchase carbon allowances.

Mike Southall, director of business development at Buderus commented: “Buderus places significant emphasis on ensuring specifiers have easy access to an extensive range of high output, high efficiency heating solutions for the commercial and industrial sectors. By adding CHP to our product range, we are now able to offer a system which provides a simultaneous supply of hot water and electricity.

“With the CRC encouraging an increasing number of public and private sector organisations to closely monitor their carbon emissions, an extensive range of fuel efficient technology is required in order to meet the growing demand for renewable and low carbon heating appliances.  Whilst efficiency levels of CHP are well documented, stakeholders can also benefit from significant savings and a subsequent quick payback on their investment.”

The Buderus CHP product range covers outputs ranging from 19 – 240kW of electricity and from 34 to 374kW of thermal output, making the technology suitable for buildings of different sizes.  An added benefit of the system is that up to five units can be cascaded to provide up to 1200kW of electrical output for applications where demand is particularly high.

Buderus offers a free feasibility study on any potential site of installation to ensure that the system can be sized correctly prior to installation in order to maximise efficiency.

Post installation, Buderus also offers maintenance advice and support to help ensure CHP units are correctly serviced and maintained for optimum performance and longevity of the complete system.
