Cogeneration, Industrial Energy Systems, Central Plants
Axiom Engineers℠ has been involved in engineering successful Industrial Cogeneration plants since the passage of PURPA in 1979. We avoided small-scale cogeneration until the Capstone Turbine® became commercially available because of the poor reliability and the high maintenance needs of small size reciprocating engine-based cogeneration. Axiom Engineers℠ has invested thousands of staff hours in understanding the technical, economical, and regulatory issues involved in cogeneration.
Our engineers have designed cogeneration projects and central plants for a wide variety of industries and applications. Our experience includes food plants, landfill gas, swimming pools, hotels, resorts, sewage plants, wineries, absorption and adsorption chilling, hospitals, and off-grid power.
Axiom Engineers℠ has been involved with the beneficial use of landfill gas for over 10 years. One of our projects produces over 2 megawatts of electricity and heats several buildings and domestic hot water. We have engineered central plants for public and private clients, which incorporate thermal storage for off peak energy use.
