About PG Solutions

Cogeneration modules offer approximately 40% higher thermal resource utilization efficiency compared to separate electricity and heat production, making them particularly suitable for industrial applications. Additionally, when using natural gas as fuel, and potentially incorporating hydrogen into the fuel gas mixture in the future, gas cogeneration modules (consisting of a gas turbine and generator) are significantly more environmentally friendly than traditional thermal power plants that burn solid fuels.
