York Dual Steam Turbine
The YDST recovers surplus heat from industrial processes or power plants for use in large central heating facilities — and it can reduce coal consumption by up to 30 percent. This technology is an important innovation for China. The government has a five-year plan to reduce pollution, in part by using surplus industrial heat for heating city buildings.
“Urbanization and the government’s efforts to promote sustainable development are driving demand in China for more energy-efficient technologies,” said Soren Bjerg, vice president and managing director, Johnson Controls Building Efficiency, Asia. “This is an opportunity for us to expand our presence in an important market and address a growing need to reduce emissions.”
The YDST recovers surplus heat from industrial processes or power plants for use in large central heating facilities — and it can reduce coal consumption by up to 30 percent.The capacity and versatility of the YDST make it ideal for large-scale central heating plants. It’s the first steam-driven centrifugal heat pump that can supply more than 100 megawatts of output per heat pump system — double the capacity of conventional heat-recovery systems.
We recently implemented a heat-recovery solution at a large northeast Chinese municipal heating facility. It has saved more than $1.2 million and 9,200 tons of coal during the 2014 heating season — equivalent to removing 4,000 passenger vehicles from the road for a year.
That’s just one way we’re helping with China’s sustainability efforts. Recently, we opened a $35 million expansion of our research and development center in Wuxi, China. It’s now one of our largest research and development centers for building heating, ventilation, air conditioning and industrial refrigeration. The campus will spearhead continuing innovation on heat recovery for the global market.
