Greenvironment to install cogeneration system at Medias hospital in Romania
A 200 kW Capstone microturbine for natural gas, including other additional components as part of a cogeneration system, will be installed at Medias Hospital in Medias city, Romania, according to the European company Greenvironment. The project was commissioned by the Romanian energy service company HospMed Project S.R.L., and it is scheduled for completion in November this year. The cogeneration system is planned to serve a dual purpose of supplying electricity and heat to the facility that has around 335 beds.
This was the first project in Romania for Greenvironment. In Romania, the company is focusing primarily on the natural gas market. The local presence is essential in order to get access to an annual market of more than EUR 50 million of new small-scale CHP plants, according to the company.
"The Greenvironment cogeneration system achieves a total efficiency slightly above 90 percent and saves the hospital around 10 percent of its annual energy costs. This is our first order from Romania for a cogeneration system using the Capstone microturbine. At the moment, we are in advanced negotiations regarding five CHP projects with 800-1,000 kW electrical installed capacity each in Romania alone”, said Peter Dorner, COO of Greenvironment Plc.
Greenvironment is a European company active in the decentralized energy generation market which plans, builds and operates cogeneration heat and power plants (CHP). The company is the official and exclusive distributor of Capstone microturbines for all applications on the Romanian market.
