Emergency power for sewage treatment plants thanks to combined heat and power unit BHKW

Combined heat and power plants (CHP) with gas engines are state of the art at wastewater treatment plants.
From the sewage gas (renewable energy), these proven systems generate electricity and heat for the wastewater treatment plants' own needs.

The fuel input is used up to 100%.
In the future, the use of the grid replacement function will take on an important role in the event of a grid failure

In many cases, small wastewater treatment plants of municipalities or municipal associations do not have concepts for emergency operation in the event of a prolonged network interruption, e.g. due to a storm.
in the event of a prolonged network interruption, e.g. due to a thunderstorm.
As a result, the incoming water volume can no longer be processed and may have to be discharged directly into public waters.

The response period is often far too short to organise and install an external mobile feed-in group, for example.

Combined heat and power plants (CHP) with emergency power function on smaller sewage treatment plants represent a solution for tackling the problem in a sustainable way.
