Tecogen sold a CM-60 combined heat and power (CHP) module to the Columbia Association in Columbia, Maryland. The 60 kW unit will be installed at the Supreme Sports Club, the largest of three fitness facilities operated by Columbia Association. In addition to providing electrical power to the facility, the CHP system will provide domestic hot water and pool heating at a far lower operating cost than the existing configuration, according to Tecogen.
Tecogen is providing the CHP system in an outdoor enclosure to be located adjacent to the fitness facility. Locating the unit outside is a way to reduce the cost of retrofitting mechanical areas for CHP. Tecogen will also provide skid-mounted plumbing assemblies that interface with domestic hot water and pool systems.
