Simons Green Energy has been awarded the contract to supply and install natural gas fired cogeneration at the under-construction Little Creatures Brewery in Geelong, Australia.
The installation of the cogeneration system will significantly reduce the Brewery’s energy usage and carbon footprint and provide a large portion of the Brewery’s electricity demands.
It will use the waste heat generated by the engines to provide hot water for the numerous process heating applications.
The systems have a total efficiency of 85 per cent, as compared to the 25-30 per cent efficiency of Grid supplied electricity.
The Brewery is due to commence production in mid 2013.
