The plants will be built in collaboration with MAN’s Chinese EPC partner Liyu and delivered to subsidiaries of Chinese energy firm the ENN Group.
One plant, which will be optimized for natural gas-fired operation, will provide 6 MWe and 13 MWth for an industrial zone in Guangdong Province.
The second plant will provide the same amount of power and heat for a paper mill in Jiangsu province. Surplus heat from the gas turbine alternator packs will be used for local production processes in the form of process steam, MAN said.
Both plants will be based on MGT-series gas turbines.
The company added that it has delivered “a number of projects” to China to replace coal-fired power plants in support of government emissions and efficiency targets.
Holger Kube, vice-president, sales power generation with the turbomachinery business init, said MAN is “observing the trend towards efficient and flexible energy production with cogeneration worldwide”.
