New V12, V16 cylinder variants of TCG 3020 gas engine series
MWM has expanded its TCG 3020 gas genset series with the introduction of V12 and a V16-cylinder variants.
The company said the new cylinder variants feature up to 18% more performance and lower oil consumption.
The MWM TCG 3020 gas engines are designed for flexible use for various applications and gas types, such as natural gas, biogas, APG, and propane gas. The two gas engines deliver an output of 1380 kWel (V12) and 1840 kWel (V16), respectively. The electrical efficiency of these engines amounts to 45% for natural gas and 43.6% for biogas applications. Fueled with natural gas, the total efficiency of the gas engines is more than 87%.
“By introducing the new cylinder variants, we offer our customers two reliable high-performance gensets that stand out with their high electrical efficiency and compact design”, said Tim Scott, director of MWM. “In addition to their high performance, flexibility, reliability, and smart plant control, the advantages of the TCG 3020 gas engines for customers especially include the improved profitability. Besides the low installation and operating costs, longer service intervals of up to 80 000 operating hours are possible until the next general overhaul, provided that high-quality gas is used.
MWM launched a 20-cylinder variant of the TCG 3020 in January 2019.
“With the two new variants, we offer additional powerful alternatives in the popular output range of 1 to 2 MW,” Scott said. The digital MWM power plant control TPEM (Total Plant & Energy Management) consolidates all engine and plant control data in a single system. The combination of the new cylinder variants and the digital power plant control are designed to enable plant operators to ensure maximum plant capacity and availability. For example, the TCG 3020 gas engines can be used for combined heat and power generation in the industry, in hospitals, or at airports as well as for the generation of power by power suppliers or in sewage treatment plants and landfills, the company said.
