1. Turnkey Solutions
Purchasing a combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, system is a major business decision. You can’t afford to go with a cogeneration company with a spotty reputation, one who uses substandard equipment, or one who farms out certain elements of the process to a secondary company. It leaves too much to chance, and the headaches aren’t worth it.
When you choose Elite, you’ll get a cogeneration supplier who’s with you every step of the way. From customized design, to financing, to delivery and install and ongoing support, Elite will oversee every last detail of the process.
The end result is a quick, streamlined transaction that’ll have you saving big on energy costs in no time.
2. Unique Skid Delivery and Install
Elite has a completely customizable design approach. Elite has the ability to place multiple cogeneration units on a single module base, or skid. All skids are custom-built to fit within a predetermined area on your property.
Elite's skids are made out of a combination of sound absorbing material including mineral wool, steel, and foam. They are watertight, seismically reinforced, and feature convenient side and front fork pockets to increase portability should the system need to be moved.
3. Integrated Design, Fluid Containment
All of Elite’s cogeneration system enclosures are designed with ease of use, accessibility, and safety in mind.
Thanks to easily removable lift off doors and access panels, service and maintenance is a snap. In addition, Elite has incorporated sound eliminating air ducts to reduce system noise. Within the enclosure’s self-contained controls cabinet is a battery charger and stored energy breaker to ensure system reliability.
The enclosure also features a stainless steel exhaust gas heat exchanger, mechanical enclosure fan, and reversible piping options for gas and hot water.
The roof of the enclosure features pitched sections to ensure water runoff. A section of the roof is easily removable for engine change out while ensuring electrical is never exposed to the elements.
4. Downtime Elimination through High Quality Parts and Localized Service
All of Elite's cogeneration applications are powered exclusively by Caterpillar engines-the best on the market. Thanks to Caterpillar's worldwide dealer network, your local Caterpillar dealer can provide parts and service quickly.
5. Around the Clock Monitoring
Elite's EnviroGen® Energy Modules are completely self-contained, meaning no extra staffing is required to manage them. Instead, Elite’s revolutionary GenView™ Control System carefully monitors your cogeneration system's performance around the clock.
This Web-based control system is designed to provide remote access to all operations that the user would be able to perform if they were on-site, standing in front of the machine. With this information and access, a trained operator can diagnose and potentially avoid catastrophic failures with the equipment.
