US-based Power Partners has announced the availability of new ‘trigeneration’ packages that combine cogeneration, with its ECO-MAX adsorption chillers, which convert waste heat into chilled water for air conditioning or process use.
The new packages enable simultaneous production of power, heat and cooling from a single heat source and result in improved overall system efficiency.
Initially, the trigeneration packages will be available in generating capacities from 200 kW to 2 MW. Power can be generated by microturbines, reciprocating engines or fuel cells. 
Each package includes CHP equipment; an ECO-MAX adsorption chiller; and cooling tower, pumps, piping, sensors for generator and chiller, all mounted on skids
Containerization is available, and Power Partners says it can custom-design the trigeneration packages to meet specific customer requirements.
ECO-MAX adsorption chillers can be driven by the waste heat from factory processes, CHP or solar thermal collectors. 
‘With increasing electricity rates – as well as pressure to cut expenses, increase air quality and reduce emissions – commercial, industrial and utility companies and other types of organizations are seeking ways to use energy more efficiently,’ said Mike Stonecipher, ECO-MAX Chillers Business segment leader for Power Partners.
‘Trigeneration is becoming a preferred method to produce a company’s or facility’s power and energy requirements,’ he added.
