MWM Turning Up The Heat In Germany
MWM has delivered two natural gas-fired TCG 2020 V12 engines for a combined heat and power plant for the international airport of Düsseldorf, Germany.
The manufacturer teamed up with the plant’s operator – the municipal utility Stadtwerke Düsseldorf – to configure the two heat-controlled CHP units, individually housed in noise control enclosures.
The generated heat is fed into the airport’s heating system as a base load that is used to heat facilities like hangars and aircraft maintenance buildings. The electrical output is 999 kW per unit while the thermal output is 1197 kW per unit, MWM said.
MWM explained that a unique feature of this twin system is that the airport’s existing Heating Plant 3 was expanded to include a powerhouse equipped with heat-controlled medium-voltage modules combined with a stratified heat storage tank, all integrated directly into the active heating system. The electrical power that is generated as a byproduct is fed into the public power grid to help meet peak-load requirements.
