Co-Generation in Milwaukee

The 11 story Zeidler Building in Milwaukee needed a cogeneration unit to generate electric power and produce hot water for building heating.

Enercon Engineering custom designed a co-generation package using two Caterpillar G3412 engine-generator sets. Good sound attenuation was also a requirement because of a roof-top location near other office buildings.

The unit is also paralleled with the local utility to pump excess power into the utility grid when demand is high.
