A technical – commercial training day was held last week in INMESOL about the innovations that MTU has developed in its engines, highlighting the technological advantages of the new models.
MTU is one of the engine suppliers with a business relationship dating back to almost the beginning of INMESOL’s activity as a manufacturer of electrical generators.
Pablo Fernández and Héctor López, MTU Application Engineers delivered an interesting course, where INMESOL’s commercial, technical, and post-sales service departments had the opportunity to learn interesting developments for applications that have a continuously growing current demand, among other things.
We talked about the new 3F and 3G application groups, appropriate for Data Centers and Mains backup applications respectively.
The new age of technology and telecommunications, as well as the volume of information available today globally and on which the current economy is based, requires an increasing demand of Data Centres, both externally as well as within companies.
We spoke about it in our blog’s article:
MTU has developed engines for use in emergencies in case of mains failure, that complies with all the specifications needed for these types of applications, including compliance with the requirements from the Uptime Institute, specialised Data Centres certification authority.
APPLICATIONS WITH FAILOVER TO THE MAINS (GRID STABILITY POWER)
This type of applications are characteristic of locations where a good electricity generation and distribution system is not available, either due to their age or because these locations energy generation is based on renewable sources (wind parks or photovoltaic power stations) where the production may be interrupted due to lack of wind or sun.
In England there are programs like STOR, where groups of gensets are used for a quick and synchronised power supply restoration when an outage or energy demand peak occurs. These generators work in parallel on island and in parallel to the mains:
NEW 2000 SERIES ENGINES
Inmesol has introduced gensets with the new 2000G06 series engines to its range. These engines are smaller and more compact, have a common rail injection system, and provide the following advantages:
- Reduced consumption in compliance with gas emissions regulations.
- Improved charge acceptance
- Longer maintenance periods.
- Correct operation, even with low charge levels
Traditionally, MTU engines characterise by using high technology on their design, as well as the reliability they offer.
Their multiple cylinders provide them with stability and make them balanced engines, which translates into a significant vibration reduction and, therefore, a reduction in noise emissions that, coupled with the soundproofed bodyworks manufactured by INMESOL, result in low noise emission gensets, highly suitable for the most demanding applications.
