Project description

As a part of a modernization of IHKW Heidenheim (industrial combined heat and power plant) on the factory premises of the company Voith, a complete replacement of three combined heat and power unit modules was performed by the company GE Jenbacher. In addition to power generation, the BHKW modules supply the hot water system of the IHKW and thereby secure the heat supply of several companies located in Heidenheim.
The control of the combined heat and power units is two-fold: in the module control (scope of delivery of GE Jenbacher) as well as the auxiliary plants control in PCS7 (scope of delivery of INP). The auxiliary plants control is integrated directly into the superordinate total control system (2 gas boilers, 5 combined heat and power units as well as the associated auxiliary equipment) in Siemens PCS7 technology.
