Australian Unity, which has been helping Australians to create secure financial futures since 1840, used Capstone microturbines to provide secure combined Cooling, Heat and Power (CCHP) for its former headquarters at Albert Road, South Melbourne.

Similar to the services provided by Australian Unity that are based on mutual trust and dependability, this trigeneration setup engineered by Optimal Group is a reliable, dependable and efficient way to power one of Australia’s oldest mutual companies.

We provided two C65 Capstone Microturbines to Australian Unity, producing a total of 130kW of electricity and 240kW of heat. This setup ensured power security as well as reducing the South Melbourne data centre’s CARB and operating costs.
