Harbec Plastics produces highly engineered, precision plastic parts for the medical, automotive, consumer goods and other industries. The CHP plant we designed for Harbec is the first of its kind in NY State, and among the first in the world. The system consists of an array of 25 ultra-low-emission 30 kW Capstone Micro Turbines producing high-quality uninterrupted power. Heat recovered from 20 of the units powers radiant floor heating in the warehouse, drives an absorption chiller and provides additional space heating. The CHP plant reduces Harbec’s net energy cost by over 30%, ensures production continuity and lowers its environmental impact.
