Precision Energy Ltd. Plant Banlgadesh
Mannheim, Germany-based MWM has shipped 15 gas gen-sets with an output of 4 MWe each to Bangladesh. The project was started in spring 2009 and was installed in spring 2010. According to MWM, this short timeline was achieved thanks to planning and production of the 15 gen-sets within three months.
The buyer is a power plant of Precision Energy Ltd., a specially formed subsidiary of a group of companies in Bangladesh. Bangladesh, with its population of about 150 million, is one of the most densely populated countries. Meanwhile, the country’s daily demand for electricity has grown to 5200 MW, compared to 4000 MW actually produced. With its 15 large gas gen-sets, the natural gas-powered plant in Ashugong, will generate a total of 60 MWe. All of the electrical power will be fed into the public grid to help supply the demand of electricity in Bangladesh.
Shortly before this project, in spring 2009, MWM launched an efficiency package including further developments in combustion technologies This Precision Energy Ltd. natural gas-powered plant in Ashugong, Bangladesh, will generate a total of 60 MWe. and charging to increase the electrical efficiency of the TCG 2032 gen-sets up to 43%. This was an improvement of 2.6%. At the same time, the electrical power was increased to 3000 kW for the V12 and 4000 kW for the V16. Due to continuous development and improvement, the orderable gensets today have reached an electrical efficiency of 43.5% with an electrical output of a maximum 4300 kWe.
Additionally, the MWM TCG 2032 combines durability and low lube-oil consumption. The zero-pressure gas train and the optimized high-pressure turbocharger ensures continuous supply of full power, even under tropical conditions, the company said. In Asia, the MWM products are marketed by the company’s own subsidiary, MWM Asia Pacific Ltd., in Singapore. This location enables the company to ensure quick service and supply of spare parts in the entire Asia/Pacific region and also for the 15 gen-sets installed in Ashugong. MWM shipped 15 gas gen-sets with an output of 4 MWe each to the Ashugong power plant.
