The CX400 in action

CX400 Versailles
District Heating, Versailles, France

Utilities company ENGIE commissioned Centrax to replace the gas turbine in its existing district heating facility serving the French city of Versailles.

The project demanded a high-efficiency power output and a rapid installation. We succeeded on both counts, achieving 99% overall CHP efficiency and completing in time for the winter heating season. The CX400 package supplies Versailles with 40% of its hot water demand and sends electricity to the grid. What’s more, our successful delivery of this energy project led to ENGIE rating our service as ‘exceptional’.
