Description – Gas Engine TCG 2020

TCG 2020 – High Profitability Thanks to High Efficiency

  • Improvements of the intake duct and spark plug provide higher efficiency compared to predecessor model
  • Miller valve control times increase genset efficiency

TCG 2020 V12 in the configuration RW (natural gas) and XW (biogas) – Increased Efficiency and Extended Useful Life in the 1 MWel Capacity Range

  • For all natural gas and biogas applications in countries with 50 Hz networks
  • Longer maintenance intervals for all natural gas applications extend useful life by two years
  • Optimized electrical efficiency of 43 percent (under ISO conditions) for natural gas applications
  • Optimized lubricant management
  • Lower internal consumption through higher mixture cooler temperatures for natural gas applications

TCG 2020K – Optimized for Isolated Operation and Non-ISO Conditions

  • Load response in only seven steps
  • Fast and reliable supply in the event of grid failures or in isolated operation
  • Special 1,000 kWel variant available for high altitude setup and different intake air temperatures

Higher Efficiency and Lower Pollutant Emissions

  • Smaller dead spaces in combustion chamber ensure more complete combustion
  • Reduced fuel consumption and CO and HC emissions
  • This enables gas savings of up to 15 percent a year and increases the profitability of the plant

Higher Efficiency and Long Maintenance Intervals

  • Effective crankcase ventilation increases efficiency by utilizing the returned combustible blow-by gas
  • Optimized blow-by return and improved separation of the gas phase and liquid phase enable longer maintenance intervals for the turbocharger thanks to the clean intake air

K Editions: Maximum Output at Low Costs

  • Improved output capacity of TCG 2020 K under non-ISO conditions and excellent load response through optimum turbocharger design with broad performance map
  • New turbocharger TCR 16 for TCG 2020 with water-cooled bearing housing eliminates need for separate maintenance stages for the turbocharger

High Reliability - Gas Engine TCG 2020 / TCG 2020 K

Few Interruptions Due to Long Maintenance Intervals

  • No more than two interruptions a year due to scheduled maintenance
  • Longest interval until major overhaul compared to competitors
  • Use of Xchange components enables time savings of up to 75 percent during the major overhaul, resulting in reduced costs

High Reliability through Mature Drive Technology in 60 Hz Range

  • Engine can be operated with an optimum speed of 1500 RPM.
  • Lower speed ensures stable and complete combustion, resulting in lower CO emissions and less component wear and tear
