MAN Diesel & Turbo Engines Pass Milestone
Two 48/60 engines by MAN Diesel & Turbo have passed 100 000 operating hours at a Spanish cogeneration plant operated by Cogeneración de Navia S.A. MAN PrimeServ supports the power plant and its two MAN 12-cylinder engines under a comprehensive service contract.
On average, the four-stroke engines at the cogeneration plant operate more than 8000 hours per year at 95% load, the company said. They generate power and heat for Industrias Lácteas Asturiana S.A.’s local dairy-product factory, Reny Picot. The engines operate on heavy fuel oil with a sulfur content of less than 1%, and have a total output of 25.2 MW.
The comprehensive maintenance contract has been active since 1998, which has allowed MAN PrimeServ to gather long-term operational experience and measurement data.
For power generation applications, the 48/60B heavy fuel engine is available in a nine-cylinder, inline version, and 12-, 14- and 18-cylinder vee-configuration versions. The engine has an output of up to 1150 kW per cylinder.
