Founded in 1964, the Viking Yacht Company has grown from a small wooden fishing boat builder into an industry-leading manufacturer of luxury fiberglass sport fishing and cruising yachts. After years of expanding the company product line and facility infrastructure, the Viking Yacht Company decided it was time to be more progressive by combating rising utility expenses with a clean and innovative power generation solution. After extensive research, the company concluded that their best option was to implement a combined cooling, heat, and power (CCHP) system powered by Capstone microturbines. Viking worked with E-Finity to help design and integrate the tri-generation system using six Capstone C65 microturbines with integrated heat recovery modules. Today, the Viking Yacht Company produces 40 percent of its electrical energy on-site, providing power and 100 percent of its space heating and chilled water direct to the facility. The efficiency of Viking’s tri-generation power plant slashed annual costs by 25 percent, providing a payback in less than five years. In addition to expanding the size and efficiency of its facility, Viking has expanded its production efforts as well, creating 200 new jobs, with more jobs expected in the near future.
