Cogeneration or CHP (Combined Heat and Power) solutions from INNIO are designed to generate both heat and power increasing overall power plant efficiency up to 90% and even more.

CHP Jumbo 1

INNIO's Jenbacher CHP systems use the waste heat created during an engine’s operation to generate overall CHP plant efficiencies of more than 90%.

This efficient and economical method of energy conversion achieves primary energy savings of roughly 40% by using a gas engine cogeneration system instead of separate power and heat generation equipment. Transportation and distribution losses also are reduced or eliminated as the decentralized energy supply is aligned where it is needed.

INNIO Cogeneration solutions are used by our customers across the globe, powering applications in variety of economy segments, for example - industrial manufacturing, commercial, municipal applications, greenhouses and many more.

Jenbacher onsite cogeneration solutions can help our customers to achieve economic targets thanks to one or several of factors, such as:

  • Decrease of Energy-related OPEX compared to centralized energy sources, or
  • Launch/extend company's operations due to new power access in energy-deficit areas, or
  • Minimize downtime thanks to improved quality of the electricity supply in regions with unstable grid infrastructure, any much more

Type 4 B-Version Upgrade (INNIO)


The basic structure of INNIO's Jenbacher CHP systems includes a gas engine/gas generator unit and heat exchangers that use waste heat. A wide range of heat sources—from gas engine cooling water and oil to an air/fuel gas mixture and exhaust gas—is configured to give each individual customer the greatest possible benefit. Our cogeneration plant solutions deliver flexible power generation and a high degree of reliability and availability.

Jenbacher Container


Jenbacher CHP modules can be installed inside buildings or packaged into ready-to-use containerized CHPsolutions. Containerized cogeneration power plants allow our customers to start using the benefits of onsite power generation quickly.

Cogeneration systems can be supplemented with a boiler system for bridging peak heat demand periods. The connection of a heat storage medium makes it possible to increase system operating time and efficiency.

Cogeneration power plant electrical switch and control systems distribute electricity and manage the engine, while hydraulic equipment ensures heat distribution. Generated power is used by a facility or fed into the public power grid.

The thermal energy can be used to generate heating water and steam production as well as for various types of process heat.

Gas engine cogeneration systems also are used for CO2 fertilization in greenhouses and trigeneration systems (combined generation of heat, cooling and power).
