Cogeneration & Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

Generator Associates are delighted to offer a range of CHP generators. These are basically efficient on–site power systems that produce electric power and thermal energy for heat, steam or air conditioning whilst reducing greenhouse gases.

Sometimes referred to as Cogeneration, combined heat and power (CHP), is the production of two types of energy – usually electricity and heat – from a single fuel such as diesel or natural gas. It normally comprises of a reciprocating–engine generator that will produce electricity and a heat–recovery system which captures the waste heat from the engine’s exhaust and cooling system.

By capturing and using the waste heat, these systems consume only 50 percent of the fuel burned by a central power station to provide an equivalent amount of energy. Since greenhouse gas emissions are directly related to the amount of fuel burned, CO2 production is also cut in half. This is a great environmental as well as financial benefit to the end user.

We can offer CHP systems from as small as 30 kW to more than 100 MW. By making continuous use of both electricity and thermal energy, customers can save up to 35 percent on overall energy costs. We can offer Finance Lease on these types of systems making them increasingly popular.

Other benefits include:

•Improved reliability of your electric supply since you are in control of your own power
•Eligibility for CHP tax credits
•Eligibility for “carbon credits” for reduced CO2 emissions

Uninterruptible Power Supply

Generator Associates are able to advise, supply and install higth efficiency UPS systems from 1kVA up to 1MVA. We can offer full turnkey solutions, electrical installation, delivery, positioning and service.  We can offer these UPS systems are part of your generator and stand-by power solution, or as stand alone products. 

A  UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) solution is different from a generator solution in terms of emegency power, in that it can provide instantaneous or near-instantaneous power by means of one or more attached batteries and associated electronic circuitry.  Whereas sometimes a generator can take up to 30 seconds to provide the required level of power. By combining a UPS and Generator solution, you have the best possible backup emergency power solution.

The UPS systems we supply are high end yet competitive. With service agents across Europe, these UPS systems offer an unparalleled level of quality and service.  You always hope you will never have to use your backup power supply, but when you do, you want it to work!

There are a number of types of UPS to choose from, Line-Interactive, Off-Line, On-Line, Digital On-Line, but they all serve the purpose of protecting your system from crashing in the event of a power failure. Deciding which technology is right can be a difficult task. That is why we are here. Our experts will provide an assessment and then advise on the best solutions for your individual needs.

Part of the range is the ECO UPS which reduces cost of ownership.  A double conversion ECO UPS, when compared to traditional six and twelve pulse machines, offers a typical efficiency advantage of more than 10%. Further, the ECO UPS remains efficient at low loads, a great advantage over competitors products.

What Are GenAss Bunded Fuel Tanks:
  • GenAss bunded tanks are crafted using high grade mild steel & then hot dipped galvanised to prevent rust. The inner tank stores the fuel, whilst the outer tank provides a safety storage area in the unlikely event that the internal tank leaks.
  • All seams are robot welded to exacting standards. The tank can be lifted via 4 lifting eyes, or forklifted from any side, making them ideal for fuel storage.
