SCHNELL Motoren AG designed and built an advanced dual fuel CHP unit with an electrical efficiency of 48.3% by combining the Scania DC12 diesel engine with S30 TurboGen™. Schnell, based in Germany, is a pioneer in biogas plant construction and is a market and technology leader for packaged dual fuel CHP units. In 2009, SCHNELL integrated a Bowman S30 TurboGen™ in to the CHP unit based on the Scania DC12 engine and created a duel fuel CHP unit with an electrical efficiency of 48.3%.

Hans-Jurgen Schnell, Founder & CEO of Schnell Motoren AG, said: “Adding the Bowman Turbogenerator to our 6-cylinder dual fuel CHP unit was an important factor that enabled us to achieve market-leading efficiency of 48.3%, and has contributed significantly to our rapid growth in this market over the last few years.”
