MWM - Gas Engine TCG 2016

Gas engine TCG 2016 - Facts and Figures

  • Output range from 400 to 800 kWe
  • Runs on all gas types: natural gas, biogas, landfill gas, sewage gas, mine gas, etc.
  • Mainly used for biogas plants and small CHP plants in Europe
  • Highest electrical efficiency in the output range up to 1,000 kWe
  • More than 1900 power generators with approximately 1,000,000 kWe already installed around the globe

Low Operating Costs - Gas Engine TCG 2016

Consumes up to 15 Percent Less Gas than Comparable Gensets Thanks to Its Best-of-Class Efficiency

  • Special piston variants with different compression for biogas and natural gas operation
  • Optimized gas exchange and camshaft, spark plugs with integrated pre-combustion chamber
  • Even load balancing over the individual cylinders enables higher load level and maximum utilization of the engine reserves in terms of output and efficiency
  • New closed crankcase ventilation optimizes combustion and increases efficiency by utilizing the blow-by gas
  • Consistent downsizing of dead spaces improves complete combustion of the gas mixture, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and HC and CO emissions and higher efficiency

Long Service Intervals

  • Longest time interval until major overhaul compared to competitors
  • Use of Xchange components enables time savings of up to 75 percent during the major overhaul, resulting in reduced costs
  • Turbocharger for TCG 2016C series, depending on application with water-cooled bearing housing, thus reducing maintenance costs for turbocharger
  • No contamination of the turbocharger compressor thanks to improved separation of gas and liquid phase, resulting in long maintenance intervals

Very Low Lubricant Consumption

  • With its lubricant consumption of only 0.2 g/kWh, TCG 2016C sets competitive standards
  • Lubricant savings of up to 50 percent compared to competitors

Lower Investment Costs - Gas Engine TCG 2016

Low Installation Costs Thanks to Smaller Dimensions

  • Compact genset design saves investment costs through smaller engine space and fewer plant peripherals
  • Setup space up to 50 percent smaller than for comparable gensets

High Flexibility - Gas Engine TCG 2016

TEM Control Enables Use of Diverse Gas Types
