Resourceful Energy and Heat Production with Cooper's Cogeneration Units

Cogeneration is the production of energy and heat that is resourcefully used at a plant where it would otherwise be wasted. The high-temperature heat drives power generation while the low-temperature heat is distributed for other means such as heating. Cooper’s slow-speed compression units offer efficiency and durability for cogeneration facilities. Cooper parts and preventative maintenance services ensure the longevity of your legacy equipment.

Cooper's Fuel Gas Boosting for Improved Efficiency in Power Plants

Cooper’s fuel gas boosting compressors are preferred additions to most new gas turbine power plant projects due to their ability to provide higher natural gas pressure for improved efficiency. These compressors have a large turndown range and the ability to handle gas pressure fluctuation from the pipeline.

Cooper's Legacy Engines for Marine and Power Generation

Legacy engines have long been used primarily for marine, stationary power, and nuclear standby service. Cooper engines can run on low BTU gas or gas with heavy hydrocarbon components. Cooper has put thousands of engines in the marine and railroad markets throughout history. We continue to provide support for these powerful units by furnishing parts, service, repairs, and turbochargers.
