Release date- 02032015 - FRIEDRICHSHAFEN/GERMANY, DUBAI/UAE - The Middle East Electricity event in Dubai will provide the backdrop for the first ever joint presentation by Rolls-Royce of the product portfolio available from MTU Onsite Energy and Bergen Engines.
From 2 to 4 March 2015 (Stand S1 F30) the company will be showcasing high and medium speed diesel and gas gensets in the 24 kWe to 9,400 kWe range. MTU Onsite Energy and Bergen Engines are part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems within the Land & Sea division of Rolls-Royce.
'We see great market potential in the Near and Middle East for our extensive range of power generation products. That is why we have now strengthened our on-site presence with a new regional subsidiary based in Dubai,' explained Matthias Vogel, Head of Power Generation Business at Rolls-Royce Power Systems. MTU Middle East provides support for distributors and business partners associated with products from MTU and MTU Onsite Energy and with land-based Bergen Engines products in 21 countries in the Near and Middle East as well as in North Africa.
At Middle East Electricity, MTU Onsite Energy will be presenting its range of high-speed diesel gensets up to 3,250 kWe and gas engine systems up to 2,530 kWe. The stand will display a diesel genset based on the new generation of MTU Series 2000 engines. Offering common rail technology and delivering up to 1,120 kWe, the new genset is quieter, more efficient and more compact than units previously available. Its power range is also around 12% greater than that of its predecessor.
Also on view, for the first time (Open Air Stand OS3), will be a 20-foot container genset from MTU Onsite Energy that is likewise based on the advanced version of the Series 2000. The unit will feature in the standard delivery program from March 2015. Other exhibits include a model containerized Power Module with a 16V 4000 diesel genset and the model of a gas system based on MTU Series 4000 engines.
The systems for decentralized power generation of MTU Onsite Energy are able to cover both continuous and emergency or peak power requirements and therefore have a critical role to play in special applications such as airports, hospitals and data centers. They can likewise operate as power generation plants delivering for base and peak load supply applications.
The Rolls-Royce medium-speed power generation solutions are supplied by Bergen Engines. Its product range will be showcased for the first time at Middle East Electricity 2015. Its stand will include a model of a generator set based on a 20-cylinder B35:40 gas engine. Power generation systems based on these gensets are currently in operation, for example, in power plants in Indonesia, Tanzania and Czech Republic.
Diesel and gas gensets from Bergen Engines cover a power range from 3,700 kWe to 9,400 kWe with complete electricity generation systems offering total supply capabilities in excess of 200 MWe. Due to their proven technology, high availability rates and low operating costs the engines are chosen by operators worldwide. The generator sets are featured by robust design coupled with leading nominal electrical efficiency ratings of up to 48.5%.
Applications include base-load generation for energy providers, grid supply balancing and peak-load supply, cogeneration (CHP) and trigeneration (CHCP) plants, emergency power and mechanical drives for the Oil & Gas sector.
