MEC starts making Stirling engines

Microgen Engine Corporation (MEC) has started building Stirling engines for use in micro combined heat and power (microCHP) appliances at its facility in Peterborough. The appliances are intended as drop-in replacements for domestic boilers. Julian Hughes, CEO of MEC said: “We are ideally positioned to capitalise on the growing momentum currently developed in the microCHP sector of home heating appliances, and we are looking forward to the launch of our microCHP product into the marketplace in 2008.” MicroCHP appliances produce both heat and electricity at the same time.
