TCG 2032B V16 gas engine with fast ramp-up option

TCG 2032B V16 gas engine with fast ramp-up option - 4.5MWel gas engine for a quick start

  • The feature of a fast ramp-up start is becoming increasingly important due to growing intermittent renewable capacity such as wind and solar
  • The MWM TCG 2032B(2) gas engine has a software option for a fast ramp-up start. This option allows to switch between normal and fast start requirement for each start request
  • A fast start is a start in less than five minutes from start request to 100% load on the grid

(2) Available for all TCG 2032B V16 standard voltages 6000 V to 11 kV @50Hz, only for natural gas

High reliability. Low operating costs – Gas Engine TCG 2032

High Efficiency and Low Lubricant Consumption

  • High fuel utilization and low operation costs thanks to optimized chamber spark plug
  • Increased efficiency through new closed crankcase ventilation that enables utilization of the blow-by gas
  • High availability through long maintenance intervals: first maintenance after 4,000 h, major overhaul after 80,000 h
  • TCG 2032: With its lubricant consumption of only 0.2 g/kWh up to 30 percent lower lubricant consumption compared to competitor products thanks to optimized tappet sealing, coke stripping rings and ring packages

Soot-Free Combustion Increases Plant Profitability

  • Open combustion chamber with chamber spark plug for soot-free combustion
  • Extended maintenance intervals for the exhaust gas heat exchanger
  • No pre-combustion chamber with time-consuming maintenance and risk of failure
  • No additional gas supply with increased gas pressure required for pre-combustion chamber

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 Availability - Gas Engine TCG 2032

New Turbocharger Technology Increases Genset Availability

  • Improved output under non-ISO conditions
  • High output of 4,500 kWel possible through use of A140 high-pressure turbocharger
  • Turbocharger achieves higher compression ratio and enables operation under full load with intake air of up to 45°C
  • Exhaust gas waste gate enables constant performance with different intake air temperatures and setup altitudes
  • Evening out of reserve boost pressure in relation to load results in higher efficiency and improved load response

Low Installation Costs - Gas Engine TCG 2032

Compact Engine Design for Easy Transport and Installation

  • Extremely lean genset with compact dimensions, low noise emissions, and smooth running guarantees minimum installation costs
  • Compared to competitors, the specific output/weight ratio is up to 40 percent better
  • Lighter engine components eliminate need for strong crane
  • Compared to competitors, TCG 2032 V16 is up to 30 percent shorter in length
  • Low weight and compact dimensions enable easy transport even to remote destinations

Short Project Period - Gas Engine TCG 2032

Short Project Period Thanks to Compact Setup

  • Pre-manufactured components directly from the manufacturer ensure quick and easy assembly on site
  • Identical setup of the individual modules facilitates flexible adjustment of the plant output
  • Modest need for space through compact design
  • Plant planning and building from one source guarantees smooth, cost-efficient project rollout

Lower Service Costs - Gas Engine TCG 2032

Low Service Costs and a Lean Maintenance Concept

  • Enhanced maintenance concept through easy access to the cylinder units
  • Long service intervals and improved serviceability
  • Low maintenance costs due to fewer engine parts, resulting in low maintenance overhead and spare parts requirement
  • Lower maintenance overhead through open combustion chamber with pre-combustion chamber spark plug
