Mannheim, November 1, 2023
MWM Solutions Provider Green Power International has installed an MWM gas engine for a plastics manufacturer in Nigeria. The MWM TCG 3020 V16 gas engine went live on January 5, 2023 and produces 1,840 kWel of electricity for the company.
MWM Gas Engines Cover High Energy Demand of Production Processes
The Panar Group of Companies has been a leading plastics manufacturer in Nigeria since 1978. The company is one of the country’s largest suppliers of jars, plastic pipes, and preforms. Green Power International Pvt. Ltd. had already installed an MWM TCG 2020 V12 K1 gas engine for the company back in 2014. Since its go-live, the MWM engine with an output of 1,000 kWel has completed 50,000 operating hours producing energy for consumption by the Panar Group of Companies.
The two gas engines are based in two separate cogeneration power plants. Since its installation in January 2023, the MWM TCG 3020 V16 gas engine has been operating continually. Together with the MWM TCG 2020 V12 K1 gas engine, it produces enough energy to cover the company’s high production demands and ensure smooth operations.
Maintenance of the Cogeneration Power Plants by Green Power International
The service team of Green Power International takes care of the regular maintenance of the systems of the Panar Group of Companies in order to ensure uninterrupted energy supply. Thanks to the high reliability and availability of the two MWM gas engines, the production process has not suffered any interruptions since the engines went live.
The MWM TCG 3020 is considered the all-rounder among MWM engines. The gas engine is suitable for various application areas and gas types, e.g. natural gas, biogas, APG, and propane gas. Moreover, the MWM 25H2 kit is offered for the conversion of natural gas engines for operation with a hydrogen admixture of up to 25 vol%. Apart from delivering an output range from 1,380 to 2,300 kWel, the MWM TCG 3020 gas engine stands out with high reliability, efficiency, and availability.
