Combined Heat & Power Combined Heat & Power

SCS’s Standardized Modular Power Plants for Distributed Energy, Combined Heat & Power (CHP), District Heating or Cogeneration applications sized from 5 MW to 50 MW and up to 500,000 pph of steam.



SCS can provide the full scope of engagement to deliver a turn-key project including engineering, design, fabrication, procurement, construction, balance of power plant work and aftermarket services.

The ultimate goal of any distributed energy, combined heat & power (chp) or cogeneration power plant project should be a project that meets all the projected performance criteria; capital cost, safety, revenue, operational ease and operational costs. SCS provides our clients with a standard modular plant that meets all of the performance criteria that are critical to safety, revenue, operational ease and operational costs.

We specialize in turnkey power plants designed around Solar or Kawasaki Combustion Turbines paired with SCS designed HRSGs. The specific Solar Combustion Turbines are the Taurus 60, Taurus 65, Taurus 70, Mars 100, Titan 130 and the Titan 250. The specific Kawasaki Gas Turbines are the GPB60, GPB70, GPB80 and GPB180.
