WALTHAM, Mass. — Tecogen® Inc., a provider of combined heat and power (CHP) systems, announced two additional project wins from National Mechanical Services. The two new projects bring the total relationship value with the contractor to more than $1.5 million.
National Mechanical Services, now part of The Metro Group, is a mechanical contractor that specializes in heating and cooling equipment replacement, 24/7 service, and heating system redesign for customers in the New York tristate area. The new CHP projects include two CM-75 kW units for a 454-unit multifamily residential building in Yonkers, New York, and a state-of-the-art InVerde e+ 100 kW unit for a 14-story student housing building near Central Park in New York City. Both projects include Tecogen’s factory engineered modules as well as various engineered accessories, customized to meet the contractor’s exact specifications and ease installation.
“National Mechanical has been a solid partner for Tecogen. Their experienced project managers understand heating and cooling systems and the benefit that combined heat and power can bring to a building, both in terms of savings for the customer as well as additional services like electricity and emergency backup power not provided by a traditional boiler solution. We look forward to building on our strong working relationship now that National Mechanical is part of The Metro Group,” said Benjamin Locke, Tecogen’s co-chief executive officer.
Tecogen’s efficient CHP or cogeneration units run on natural gas. The equipment generates electricity from the gas-fueled engine and then recycles the free waste heat for use by the building’s heating and cooling system. Because waste heat is recovered from the electric power production process, the systems can achieve fuel energy utilization upwards of 90 percent with minimal losses — a level of efficiency that directly translates into savings for the customer.
