The Ethicon facility in Cornelia, Georgia – a Johnson & Johnson Company- manufactures surgical and medical instruments. In the process, Ethicon uses both heat and electrical energy on a consistent 24X7X365 basis. The FlexEnergy Inc MT250 gas turbine became an obvious choice as a consistent provider of on site heat and electrical energy. They installed two MT250 gas turbines that deliver 2.200.000 Btu/hr as part of a modified exhaust system that feeds a steam boiler. The heat energy generated by the gas turbines aids in the sterilization process by reducing the amount of natural gas that the existing steam boilers consume for regular operation.

Results: Boiler Savings: $ 150.000/year

Annual Energy Savings: $ 350.000/year
