MWM Container ‒ The One-Stop Solution

Mannheim, April 29, 2010

In addition to the recent expansion of the product range with the new genset TCG 2020 K, MWM from Mannheim, Germany, now wants to increase its presence in the field of complete turnkey systems. In this context, the company has introduced the new MWM container, a highly efficient and economic system designed especially for natural gas and biogas applications.

Especially in the field of biogas, the container represents an economic overall package consisting of a biogas genset, a standard container, and biogas processing. All components are tuned to each other in the best way possible and are perfectly aligned with the special requirements of biogas operation. For example, exhaust turbochargers and controlled gas systems designed especially for this application case are made use of. The efficiency is substantially improved by optimized chamber spark plugs and special pistons. Moreover, the cooling water and exhaust gas heat exchanger are integrated in the heating circuit. The TA-Luft exhaust gas regulations are complied with, and the requirements for the emission reduction bonus (e.g. for Germany) for limiting formaldehyde by means of active carbon desulfurization, catalysis, gas cool drying and, if necessary, compression, are met.

Depending on the application case, the engines can be adjusted for various natural gas and special gas qualities in addition to biogas. The container can be implemented with the MWM gensets TCG 2016 C (V08, V12, or V 16) and TCG 2020 (12, 16, or 20 cylinders). The main focus is on reliability and advanced efficiency, which are achieved through measures such as the optimized intake duct and combustion chamber, contributing to a 15% reduction in annual fuel costs. Furthermore, improved engine parts enable lubricant savings of up to 50% compared to similar gensets.

The TEM system effectively controls not only the engine, but also the entire plant including the heat from cogeneration. Temperature monitoring for each cylinder and anti-knock control ensure optimum fuel utilization and maximum power output even if the gas composition should fluctuate.

With its standardized container dimensions 3 x 3 m (W x H) including the genset, peripherals, and switchgear, the entire unit is not only extremely compact, but also ensures easy transportation and quick setup on site. If necessary, the container floor can serve as an oil catch pan. The cables are routed under the switch cabinets, and the supply connections for gas and heating water and optionally for lubricants and for the flare are integrated in the side panels of the container.

Furthermore, the container is heat and noise insulated, and the slim, smooth wall design enables maximum utilization of the interior space. The comprehensive offer of the MWM containers comprises a time-saving maintenance concept, low-maintenance design, long maintenance intervals, and a global service and logistics network. The TEM system even allows direct online access to current engine values during operation. Furthermore, all relevant international certifications have been obtained, such as CE, GOST (Russia), and CSA (Canada).

MWM Presents New Genset TCG 2020 K
April 2010
No. 10-04-20

Mannheim, April 20, 2010

Following the successful introduction of several efficiency enhancement packages for all three gas genset series, the Mannheim-based company MWM has now introduced the new TCG 2020 K. The natural gas-powered engine is highly robust, suitable for isolated operation, and features the same output values along with increased inlet air temperatures and setup heights as for ISO conditions, which is especially valuable for deployment in Asia and tropical countries.
 
The engine, which is designed for operation with natural gas, supersedes its predecessor of the same designation and the previous model TCG 2020 OLS and will also be built in a V12 and a V16 version. The development has resulted in a 10% performance increase and improved efficiency. The company states the electrical output at 1,125 kW for the V12 variant and 1,500 kW for the V16. With a 400 V generator, the electrical efficiency for both cylinder types is 41.0%.

"Among other things, a newly developed turbo charger and an optimized combustion chamber contributed to the increase in performance and efficiency, while retaining the load response and isolated operation capabilities of the predecessor model", explains Armin Roeseler, Head of Product Management at MWM. Furthermore, the inlet and the spark plugs have been optimized.

The new TCG 2020 K represents another product innovation of MWM GmbH that complements the model range of gas gensets. See www.mwm.net for further information.
