YANMAR mCHP Unit Powers New Hotel in Maine

One 10 kW Unit Installed at Hyatt Place Portland-Old Port Hotel in Maine

Adairsville, GA (May 5, 2014) – YANMAR America Corporation is pleased to announce that Mack Energy Systems, a division of Mack Boring & Parts Company, recently installed one of its CP10WN units at the new 130-room Hyatt Place Portland-Old Port Hotel in Portland, Maine.


The customer chose micro Combined Heat and Power (mCHP) as the building's source for electricity and hot water for guest showers and laundry facilities due to the high efficiency rate of the equipment; they chose YANMAR's product specifically due to the brand's excellent reputation and reliable service network. In addition to mCHP, the new hotel features compact fluorescent lighting, and the owner plans to take advantage of the Efficiency Maine program, which offers cash incentives to reduce the upfront cost of projects that help homeowners and businesses use electricity more efficiently.

YANMAR's CP10WN units are one of two current U.S. approved energy systems solutions from the 100-year-old diesel engine company. The CP10WN, which runs off of propane or natural gas, provides 10 kilowatts of electrical output along with recovered heat for generating hot water with an efficiency rate of 88 percent. YANMAR's other U.S. EPA approved mCHP product is the CP5WN, a 5 kilowatt unit with an 84 percent efficiency rate.

Mack Energy Systems has been a partner of YANMAR's Energy Systems division for several years. The dealer provides YANMAR'S energy solutions to residents and small business, and handles the entire project from start to finish including project planning and design, installation and routine maintenance.
