The CX400 in action

Siemens-400-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’.
