The MWM TCG 3020 gas engine effectively balances efficiency and reliability. The genset delivers up to 18 percent more output than its predecessor, though its dimensions are almost the same. Additionally, the new model features long service intervals with up to 80,000 operating hours until the next general overhaul (if the gas quality is high) and a total efficiency of more than 87 percent (with natural gas).

Owing to their high reliability and profitability, the gas engines with an output of 1,380 to 2,300 kWel are ready for the challenges of Industry 4.0. Thanks to the use of the digital power plant control TPEM (Total Plant & Energy Management), the gas engines are able to reach their full performance for maximum plant availability, capacity, and usability.

MWM retrofit kits for hydrogen operation

The gas engines of the TCG 3020 series can be used for operation with a hydrogen admixture of up to 25 vol%. With the MWM 25H2-Kit, operators of existing plants can retrofit their gas engines for operation with a hydrogen admixture of up to 25 vol%.

Description – MWM Gas Engine TCG 3020

TCG 3020 V20 in Z Configuration: High-Performance Propane Operation

The tried and tested TCG 3020 series has been supplemented with a new variant. In the Z configuration, the MWM TCG 3020 V20 gas engine runs on propane; in this way, the engine delivers a high performance density even at high altitudes. To ensure high quality and availability of the plant, the TCG 3020 V20 Z has undergone an extensive text cycle. The genset is available for parallel operation with the most important grid codes and for island-mode operation with improved load response. Moreover, the engine allows for alternate operation with natural gas.
