YANMAR America Introduces New 35 kW mCHP for U.S. Market

YANMAR America announces the introduction of a new EPA certified 35 kW micro Combined Heat and Power (mCHP) system, the CP35D1 and CP35D1Z (blackout start) models. Powered by natural gas, the unit is 88 percent efficient overall as compared to the 33 percent overall efficiency offered by a traditional power plant.

YANMAR America announces the introduction of a new EPA certified 35 kW micro Combined Heat and Power (mCHP) system, the CP35D1 and CP35D1Z (blackout start) models. Powered by natural gas, the unit is 88 percent efficient overall as compared to the 33 percent overall efficiency offered by a traditional power plant.


The CP35D1 operates similar to the 5 and 10 kW mCHP systems from YANMAR America, but it has a built-in inverter instead of external inverters; this makes it a true plug-and-play unit, as well as decreases the system's footprint. The 35 kW model also features a new rich burn engine for lowered emission levels. Overall, the unit provides customers with a faster return on investment (ROI) due to the built-in inverter and lowered production costs per kilowatt.

Similar to the 5 and 10 kW models, the 35 kW offers a blackout start (BOS) model (CP35D1Z), which reduces reliance on the grid for the option to have heat and power even when the grid fails or in remote areas.

The CP35D1 comes with a standard two year, unlimited operation hours factory backed warranty from the date of commissioning with a 7,500 hour maintenance interval. Optional Product Protection plans include 10 years/30,000 hours or 10 years/60,000 hours (whichever comes first).

Ideal applications for this model are offices or multi-unit housing, hotels, restaurants, healthcare facilities and other light commercial properties,                                                         

The CP35D1 will be available for U.S. purchase beginning March 2016. To learn more, please visit www.yanmar-es.com/products/mchp.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
