The MWM TCG 3016 gas engines are more than merely the next iteration of MWM’s proven gas gensets: The new gas engines represent an entirely new development – perfectly tailored to the challenges of Industry 4.0 and the changed framework conditions of a dynamic market environment in the age of global value chains. Outstanding efficiency, reliability, flexibility, and environmental compatibility represent the basic pillars of the gas engines in the output range from 400 kWel to 1,000 kWel. Their innovative drive is especially evident from the greatly reduced fuel costs, the extremely low lubricant consumption, and the digitized power plant control TPEM.

Description – MWM Gas Engine TCG 3016

High Efficiency, Low Operating Costs

  • Highest efficiency in its output class through unique combination of long maintenance intervals (80,000 operating hours for natural gas) and high efficiency (electrical efficiency up to 43.5 percent)
  • The only gas engine on the market that combines efficiency with robustness to such a high degree
  • Thanks to the optimized combustion, the electrical efficiency has been improved, and the vibration and stress that many components are exposed to has been reduced significantly.

Reduced Installation and Building Costs

  • Smaller setup area than for comparable gensets thanks to compact design and integrated tanks for daily refilling
  • Due to the flanged genset concept, the vibration decoupling takes place directly between the gas engine and the base frame, so that the setup costs are lower than for other gas engines.
  • Reduced investment costs thanks to expanded product scope and new digital power plant control TPEM (Total Plant & Energy Management)
  • Thanks to the optimized new combustion chamber geometry, higher mixture circuit temperatures reduce the dry cooler investment costs and ensure steadier combustion.
  • Further benefits and technological improvements: Water-cooled turbo charger, flanged genset concept, optimized flow control of the fuel gas mix and optimized oil management of the gas engine

Optimized Lubricant Managament

  • Greatly reduced oil consumption of 0.1 g/kWhel. Thus, the TCG 3016 gas engine boasts the lowest lubricant consumption in its class.
  • Longer oil change intervals through innovative, leading-edge lubricant management
  • Lubricant change intervals of up to 4,000 operating hours for natural gas and biogas (high and medium gas quality)*
  • Up to 66 percent lower lubricant consumption compared to competitors

* Oil change must be performed after oil analysis

Economical, Efficient and Complete

  • With its comprehensive digital power plant control system TPEM (Total Plant & Energy Management), Caterpillar redefines the control standard for energy solutions. TPEM eliminates the need for additional control systems for most applications, as all power plant data for the genset and plant control are combined in one system. The optimum power plant control enables high economic efficiency, provided from a single source.
  • ONE USER INTERFACE – Complete power plant control and setup
  • REMOTE ACCESS – Remote power plant control on site and via VPN connection with visualization “TPEM Remote Client” included
  • SECURITY-ORIENTED TECHNOLOGY – Meets latest ISO 27001 standards; Safety chain for cogeneration plant monitoring (TÜV-certified)
  • SET UP – Custom-tailored technical solutions; One integrated, flexible control system for all electric power applications; Modular structure for individual solutions
  • OPERATE – High efficiency through optimal power plant control; Enables remote power plant management and monitoring; Use the full genset potential with maximum reliability
  • OPTIMIZE – Data management and analysis delivers information for optimizing the power plant; Life cycle history enables the logging of and access to data throughout the life cycle of the genset and the peripherals
