Tognum Supplying Gas Turbine Plant To Daimler
Tognum received an order to supply an MTU Onsite Energy-branded gas turbine plant for the Daimler AG automobile facility in Sindelfingen, Germany, where it will generate additional electricity and processing heat for the production halls.
Delivery of the gas turbine plant is scheduled for October of this year. In addition, Tognum and Daimler have signed a long-term, full maintenance contract. The combined value of the orders for the gas turbine plant and the maintenance contract is more than €30 million.
The gas turbine plant, produced at the Friedrichshafen, Germany, location, comes with auxiliary systems such as starting plant and control systems from MTU Onsite Energy. Together with a gas turbine from General Electric, the scope of supply includes a gas compressor, a generator and a generator transformer supplied by ABB. The order includes the maintenance contract, which covers 100 000 hours of operation.
In conjunction with the existing CHP plant, the gas turbine will supply electricity for the Daimler automobile facility, generating 30 MW of electrical power and 42 MW of thermal energy. That is enough to supply around 45 000 households with electricity and 16 000 households with heat, the company said. In the processes of generating electricity and utilizing waste heat from the gas turbine, the CHP system uses over 80% of the input energy.
