Power Range : Gaseous Fuel: 230 to 3480 kW
The company has introduced more powerful versions of its 275GL Series engine for gas compression applications. The 12V275GL+ and the 16V275GL+ are rated 2703 kW and
3605 kW at 1000 r/min, respectively. The “+” in the updated engines references a 2% fuel efficiency gain, reduced NOx and an enhanced ESM engine control system.
Dresser Waukesha introduced a new combined heat and power (CHP) package for its APG1000 generator set designed to maximize total efficiency in CHP applications. The new CHP package for the 1 MW APG1000 is expected to achieve up to 89.4% total efficiency (thermal plus electrical) in combined heat and power applications.
The company reached an engine efficiency of 47% BTE, established by the U.S. Department of Energy for Phase II of the Advanced Reciprocating Engine Systems program. The efficiency level was achieved with a simple-cycle 1200 r/min APG1000
lean-burn demonstration engine without exhaust energy recovery.
The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded Dresser Waukesha a US$6.6 million award for the development of an ultra-clean, high-efficiency combined heat and power (CHP) enginegenerator system. With the funding, Dresser Waukesha will aim to develop a CHP system with an output of 1 to 1.5 MW and up to 1.5 MW of hot water and/or steam.
