The E.ON Connecting Energies will facilitate CO2 reduction to the tune of 2,600 tonnes per year. In addition, P&G will be able to reduce public water consumption for cooling processes by 86 percent.

The new plant is planned to be operational by end of 2016. E.ON will own and operate the CHCP for P&G. In order to guarantee a high level of operational and maintenance efficiency and to adapt the operational mode on demand, the plant will be connected to E.ON’s 24/7 remote control centre in Hamburg.

Bernd Schumacher,à‚ CEOà‚ of E.ON Connecting Energies, said: “This efficient trigeneration plant shows the numerous benefits that the decentralised solutions of tomorrow’s energy world can offer to energy-intensive industrial customers ” from CO2 and energy reductions to cost savings. To realize these benefits, it is highly important to provide a solution fully tailored to a company’s specific requirements.”
