Turning heat and power into rich ice cream

20 February 2017

Germany’s largest ice cream producer operates out of Heppenheim in the beautiful southern state of Hesse. Langnese makes ice cream for the whole of Europe here. Since the end of 2009, a mtu heatcontrolled cogeneration plant (CHP) has been in service here to partly cover the high demand for heat and power. The mtu 16-cylinder Series 4000 natural gas engine from a mtu heatcontrolled achieves an efficiency factor of 87.1% by optimizing the utilization of heat. The combined heat and power plant allows Langnese to adapt heat generation flexibly to satisfy grid stability power production demands in its factory.
