In collaboration with the Chinese EPC partner Liyu, MAN Diesel & Turbo has won two further orders for CHP energy production in China. Based on MGT series gas turbines, the compact plants will be delivered to subsidiaries of the Chinese energy firm ENN Group.
One of the CHP plants, optimized for natural gas operation, will be used in an industrial zone in Dongguan City (Guangdong Province) and in addition to about 6 MW of electricity it will also provide 13 MW of heat. With the same performance data, the second CHP plant will supply a paper mill in Huaian (Jiangsu Province). Surplus heat from the gas turbine alternator packs will be utilized with high efficiency and will benefit the local production processes in the form of process steam.
MAN Diesel & Turbo now has a number of projects in the People’s Republic in which its CHP technology has replaced the former energy production based on coal. Through the changeover to natural gas fuel and efficient utilization of surplus heat, these projects are supporting the targets set by the Chinese government for increasing efficiency and reducing emissions. The success of MAN MGT gas turbines is reflected by numerous orders placed by end customers in China as well as Germany.
