Field Trial Background

The szencorp building at 40 Albert Road is a research and development test bed for innovative solutions.  The project is aimed to demonstrate minimum energy and water performance standards to minimise outgoings and running costs and demonstrate that green is commercial. 

The CHP2 demonstration unit was installed at South Melbourne, Australia in December 2005 to provide operational experience in ‘real world' environments.  Especially one which is in a true commercial installation as opposed to controlled conditions in a laboratory or testing centre.

Field Trial Achievements

  • Validated the remote monitoring capabilities of the CHP2 unit, such as remote start-up and shut-down and fault diagnosis
  • Installation of a prototype SOFC system within a commercial building, closely integrated with the building's hot water system
