Himoinsa, a world leader in the manufacture of generator sets, is incorporating into its product line the HRTW 1300D dual frequency generator set, which provides 1300 kVA of power at 50Hz and 1385 kVA at 60Hz, and is directed at the rental sector in particular.
The HRTW 1300D dual frequency model is designed for applications that require high strength and durability wherever efficient, fast and reliable power is needed. Because of its versatility, this solution can be used in multiple applications, being in high demand in construction, mining, refining, seaports, at events, and also as an independent power plant.
The main advantage of this generator set resides in its capacity to provide electrical power at 50 Hz as well as 60 Hz, making it the best product to use in seaports as well as for multinational companies operating in different countries, according to Himoinsa.
Designed to stand up to extreme conditions, the HRTW 1300D generators are built to withstand harsh climatic conditions and to work in the most demanding situations. This model, which incorporates a Mitsubishi engine, includes quick fuel connections on the outside of the tank, an automatic oil fill system, variable high speed fans that reduce fuel consumption and noise emission, interior lighting, maintenance-free batteries, grounding points and easy access for maintenance.
Its modularity and easy installation also make it ideal as a temporary backup power plant when electrical power is inadequate or when energy demand peaks occur, to provide power during maintenance work on the mains power system, or to provide energy in inaccessible locations or construction sites.
The easily used, state-of-the-art control panel is able to synchronise up to 32 generators in parallel and provide load sharing. The control panel constantly monitors generator operation, enabling it to operate under load demand and perform load shedding. The control panel likewise can memorise up to 250 events and offers many functions for flexible monitoring, measurement and protection of the generator set. It also offers a complete range of communication and expansion options.
The HRTW 1300D is combined with a tough 20-foot ISO tank with CSC certification that permits maritime transport. Its design allows the genset to be easily transported and handled with cranes and hoists. Its wide doors facilitate access, ensuring easy and quick maintenance and service.
Through the HRTW 1300D dual frequency genset, Himoinsa aims to offer the rental sector multiple, easily operable solutions in a single product.
Aggreko power tests Abu Dhabi pipeline project
Aggreko, specialist in the provision of temporary power and temperature control services, has been awarded a contract by China Petroleum Engineering & Construction Corporation (CPECC) to supply load testing to the Abu Dhabi Crude Oil Pipeline (ADCOP) project.
The pipeline is over 400 km long and will transport up to 1.5 million barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil from the main producing areas in Abu Dhabi to the oil terminal at Fujairah, the base for the project.
The contract will see Aggreko provide a 10 MW loadbank test package to the main incoming switchgear – a solution devised specifically for this project. The load testing will ensure the equipment is working effectively, to avoid the risk of any damage or power failures once the whole system is permanently up and running.
Jack George, electrical engineer at CPECC, said: “Aggreko has provided us with a turnkey service, meaning that the package they delivered was designed, installed, commissioned and operated by Aggreko. The knowledge of their technical specialists meant that a solution was designed to exactly suit our requirements.”
Phil Burns, managing director, Aggreko Middle East, added: “The initial discussion we had with CPECC was for loadbank testing at 11 kV. However, Aggreko can provide testing at three times that voltage, so a bespoke package was designed at 33 kV in order to ensure optimum results were achieved.
“This is a perfect example of how our broad experience in the oil and gas sector enables us to devise customised solutions to our customers.”
MTU Onsite trigen plant powers Australian hospital
Tognum subsidiary MTU Detroit Diesel Australia Pty Ltd is to supply five diesel gensets and a natural gas compact trigeneration plant to the Australian Department of Health. The emergency gensets will be powered by MTU 20V 4000 G23 diesel engines producing 2.5 MW of electricity each.
The trigeneration plant will run in continuous operation with a MTU 20V 4000 L63 gas engine and is expected to clock up about 7000 operational hours annually. The MTU Onsite Energy-branded trigeneration configuration at the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital in Perth will incorporate an absorption chiller to provide cooling as well as heat and power. The equipment will be delivered from December in readiness for onsite start-up in July 2012. The order is worth about €7 million ($9.4 million).
The gas genset system of the type GB2148 will feature an electronic MTU Module Control (MMC) system and a customised heat exchange module. The MMC provides a line to the hospital’s power supply system and regulates the trigeneration module and emergency gensets. Among other functions, the MMC synchronises the gas genset to the mains outlet for operation in grid parallel mode. When mains failure mode is activated the MMC parallels with the diesel gensets and minimises any voltage differences. In conjunction with a rapid load acceptance, the absorption chiller can be automatically activated during grid outages.
In addition, the heat exchange module includes a pump cooling/heat exchanger, pumps, control valves, expansion vessels, and pressure relief valves. All assembled on a compact skid, the pump panel is also located on the module, ensuring complete design with minimum footprint.
