Brandýsko-Boleslavská městská a.s. (BBM a.s.) is a municipal utility company in the city of Brandýs nad Labem that was faced with the task of modernizing the heat supply system and reconstructing the boiler house based on a highly efficient cogeneration plant. TEDOM carried out all work from the design of the power plant to the supply of the equipment and the commissioning. The core element selected for the project is a gas genset that delivers 600 kW of electrical energy and 735 kW of thermal energy. The produced electrical energy is supplied to the ČEZ grid, whereas all of the generated thermal energy is used in the heating system to support the thermal gas boilers. The main consumers of the thermal energy are the nearby residential buildings and the local private hospital. The operating mode varies depending on the season and demand: during the winter season, the gas engine runs 12 to 16 hours a day, while in summer, the operation is reduced to 6 hours a day. This flexible energy production scheme contributes to the total life of the generator set, thus reducing operating and maintenance costs.
