Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation has commissioned a CHP facility in Connecticut.
The company says the facility will produce enough power to supply 84% of the company’s 185,000 m2 facility in Stratford.
The new system will provide 85% of the facility’s steam heating needs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 8900 tonnes annually — the equivalent of greenhouse gas emissions produced by 1600 passenger vehicles a year.
The project began more than three years ago with a $26 million capital investment by Sikorsky and a $4.66 million State Cogeneration Incentive grant.
“Today Sikorsky takes another big step in our commitment to operate as an environmentally friendly and sustainable business,” Sikorsky President Jeffrey P. Pino said at a commissioning ceremony. “This is a journey we’ve been on for many years now.
