Waukesha Engine Introduces APG2000 and APG3000 Gen-Sets
Waukesha Engine’s new APG Series of high-efficiency, low-emission engines for the world power generation market were recently introduced at the Power-Gen International. (Please see October, Diesel & Gas Turbine Worldwide for complete APG100 article.) With the introduction of the APG Series, Waukesha’s product lineup moves to a higher level of advanced lean burn combustion with a new high-energy ignition system, fast burn rate and a new high-efficiency turbocharger.
“The APG Series is aimed at the large segment of the power generation market that demands high efficiency, low emissions and lower operating costs simultaneously,” said Paul Cannestra, vice president, marketing for Waukesha Engine, a business unit of Dresser Inc. “The APG Series is a bridge between the robust Waukesha Engine design that has been so highly valued by our traditional customer base and the state-of-the-art technology required by the power generation market.”
An engine-only version of the APG1000, the APG 16V150LTD is rated at 1390- 1530 bhp. Waukesha is accepting orders for the APG1000 Enginator gen-set and the APG 16V150LTD engine for shipment in 2006.
Additional models will be added to the APG Series in 2006 – the APG2000 Enginator gen-set rated at 1860 and 2100 kW, and the APG3000 Enginator gen-set rated at 2800 and 3200 kW, at 1200 and 1500 rpm, respectively.
