MWM Distributor MKS Group of Companies Completes Innovative Power Plant Solution with MWM TCG 2032 Gas Engine for Enterprise NLMK Ural

Mannheim, February 20, 2020

In November 2019, MWM distributor MKS Group of Companies together with the MWM specialists successfully completed commissioning of the generating equipment at the power plant for NLMK Ural (NLMK Group), one of Russia's largest enterprises, at its production site in Nizhniye Sergi, Sverdlovsk region. Design, equipment supply, construction, installation and commissioning of the power plant were completed by MKS Group of Companies within twelve months from laying the foundation to commissioning.

New Power Plant Enables Complete Covering of the Production Site's Heat Consumption and 50 Percent of Electricity Consumption

The power plant functions in cogeneration mode with simultaneous power and heat production. The energy complex houses an MWM TCG 2032B V16 unit and three gas fired hot-water boilers of 7 MW (megawatts) each. With 4.5 MW general electrical power and 25.5 MW thermal power the power plant became the most powerful gas engine power plant in the Nizhneserginsky district of the Sverdlovsk region. The total efficiency of the installation amounts to 86.5 percent. The power plant completely covers the demand of the production site's heat consumption as well as 50 percent of the electricity consumption. The environmentally friendly power plant will also decrease the greenhouse emissions of the NLMK Ural enterprise by 4,000 tons per year.

Reduced Production Costs and a Short Payback Period

The opening ceremony of the power plant took place on November 14th, 2019. During the ceremony the power plant was set into operation from the control center. "The cheap electrical output and thermal power produced by the MWM TCG 2032B V16 engine allows us to significantly reduce the production costs", says Roman Panteleev, Chief power engineer of NLMK Ural. "The work was well-organized and coordinated, the generating equipment was constructed in a short time". According to calculations, the payback period of the energy center will be three years.

Higher Flexibility, Reliability and Environmental Friendliness of Power Plant due to MWM TCG 2032B V16 Unit

The MWM gas engines of the TCG 2032 series are perfectly geared to the challenges of a dynamic market environment. The models in the output range of 3,000 – 4,500 kWel meet the high requirements of a broad range of applications and guarantee efficiency, reliability, flexibility and environmental sustainability, together with low lifecycle costs and high profitability. The TCG 2032B V16 gas engine with a fast ramp-up option allows to switch between normal and fast start requirements for each start request. This feature is becoming increasingly important due to growing renewable capacity.
