Ilios, A Subsidiary Of Tecogen: Expanding To Ireland While Entering The US Agricultural Market

WALTHAM, Mass., March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ilios Dynamics Inc., a majority owned subsidiary of Tecogen Inc., today announced the sale of five Ilios High Efficiency Water Heaters for propane applications.  Two of these units will be used for hydronic heating in a school and a hotel in the Republic of Ireland while the remaining three will be used for hydronic heating in US agricultural processes.   The Ilios unit offers up to twice the efficiency and half the fuel consumption of a conventional gas boiler.  Designed to run on either natural gas or propane, these units will be cutting propane heating expenses in half at these sites; significantly lowering operation costs.

"Propane heating can be quite an expense but in many locations, it's still the most economical option," said Martin J. McDonough, president and COO of Ilios Dynamics.  "Being able to heat your facility with half the propane equates to half the bill and half the carbon footprint.  It's simple math and a simple solution to rising energy costs and the need for increased environmental responsibility."

According to the USDA, more than half of US farms currently use propane for a variety of purposes with space heating being the most common use. 1  

With coefficient of performance (COP) of 1.2 to 2.2, the Ilios High efficiency Water Heater produces 400,000 to 600,000 BTU/hr of hot water.  The Ilios High Efficiency Water Heater is an alternative to conventional systems at facilities with a gas demand of 2,000 therms per month or more.
