Ilios Sells Seven Water-Source Natural Gas Engine Driven Heat Pumps to Major Biomedical Research Facility in Florida

WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ilios Dynamics, a subsidiary of Tecogen® Inc. (NASDAQ: TGEN) today announced the sale of seven HEWH-500-WS natural gas engine driven heat pumps to a world-class biomedical research facility in Florida. The product will be implemented in such a manner as to provide hot water and chilled water simultaneously. The hot and chilled water is needed for precise climate control in laboratory environments where both temperature and humidity must be maintained to specific conditions.

The units will be providing hot water at over twice the efficiency of the existing boiler plant, thereby saving considerable natural gas as well as the corresponding CO2 savings associated with consuming less fuel. Cooling, a free by-product, will be used to chill water and will "peak shave" their existing chiller plant saving kilowatt hours (kWh) as well as reducing costly demand charges. The electric savings realized in the central chilling plant will also provide additional CO2 reduction for the facility.

The Ilios natural gas engine driven heat pump is part of a larger energy efficiency retrofit project being implemented by a forward thinking top-tier mechanical contractor. This project will be the first of its kind in Florida.

"Research laboratories and pharmaceutical facilities represent a major vertical market that we are focusing a lot of our attention on," says Steve Lafaille, Ilios Product Manager. "These types of facilities are inherently energy intensive; with a constant need for heating and cooling. World class facilities such as these strive to be innovative in every sense, in their research, their products, as well as in their energy conservation measures, and we plan to capitalize on that. The Ilios product delivers a lot of value in a small package-massive energy savings, carbon reduction, and clean emissions, making it a wise choice for environmentally conscious facilities."
