electrical capacity

Centrica Business Solutions and Fuji Oil Europe have signed an agreement to build a combined heat and power (CHP) unit with an electrical capacity of 1.56 MW at the European headquarters of the manufacturer of vegetable oils and fats in Ghent. This installation will be included in a pool of industrial installations that support the Belgian electricity grid. Centrica Business Solutions will also manage the operation and maintenance of the installation for the next ten years.

With this new CHP, heat in the form of hot water and high-pressure steam are produced. While the output of a CHP in the industry is not always optimally usable, this customised solution for Fuji Oil leads to an efficiency of no less than 90%. This means that the unit seamlessly fits with the company's high sustainability ambitions.
