Toho Gas and MHIET Develop 450kW Gas Cogeneration System

Toho Gas Co., Ltd. and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine & Turbocharger, Ltd. (MHIET) have jointly developed a new 450kW gas engine cogeneration system that features a higher initial load than existing systems. Sales of the new product will commence on December 15.

The new gas cogeneration system features more advanced control of engine frequency and generator voltage than previous models. Together these improvements enable an initial load after system startup of 180kW, the highest levels in a 400kW-class high-efficiency gas engine, while maintaining generating efficiency as high as 42%. This represents a near 33% improvement from the 135kW of the existing system, corresponding to 40% of rated load.

The new specifications result in improved initial power supply capability during power outages, as well as further strengthening of readiness for BCP(1) operations compared to other systems.

Toho Gas and MHIET will introduce the new system, which offers outstanding energy efficiency, in hospitals, commercial facilities, office buildings, factories, etc. The two partners will strive to promote more widespread adoption of gas cogeneration systems to make positive contributions to BCP, energy savings and environmental protection.
