CP Micro-cogeneration Systems
- models for biogas

The Yanmar WE series of CP micro-cogeneration units includes 25kW electrical output models for biogas of different methane concentrations. Using these units in multi-unit installations the number of units in operation can be controlled according to the availability of biogas to maintain high total efficiency.

The WE series is shown here as a 'representative' series, for other models for specific regions please consult with Yanmar.

WE series unit availability depends on product stock levels.

Depending on the region Yanmar WE series CP micro-cogeneration units for biogas can provide:

  • Power and hot water from biogas
  • Carbon neutral energy
  • Power export and sales
  • High efficiency even with varying amounts of biogas
