Delivery of Gas Engine CHP for the BMW Plant Landshut
On 23 April 2014, the gas-engine cogeneration plant was delivered to the BMW plant in Landshut.
The generator will generate a residual current with a continuous output of 2.68 MW. In a highly efficient cogeneration system, 2.37 MW of heat is fed into the company’s grid. The decision for the CHP module by the company GE Jenbacher was made on the basis of an open public tender, followed by an efficiency comparison over the projected duration.
The CHP is part of an overall concept for the Landshut production site with the aim of increasing energy efficiency and reducing the emission of pollutants. In conjunction with the utilization of the waste heat from the foundry and the generation of cooling via absorption chillers, BMW is thus implementing a lighthouse project in the region, which will also be a benchmark for other production sites in the automotive industry. The project is realized as an ‘Energy Saving Contract’ by a consortium consisting of the companies Siemens and Ulrich Müller with Gammel Engineering GmbH as a planning partner.Back to our videos
