MWM TCG 3016 Gas Engines and Retrofit Kits for Hydrogen Operation with Admixture of up to 25 vol% Now Available
Mannheim, August 9, 2023
The newly launched MWM TCG 3016 gas engines support operation with a hydrogen admixture of up to 25 vol% without any technical modification. In addition to new engines, MWM offers operators of existing plants retrofit kits for the conversion of gas engines of the TCG 3016 series for operation with a hydrogen admixture of up to 25 vol%.
Sustainable Energy Generation with Hydrogen-Fueled Gas Engines
In order to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 as planned by the European Union, plant operators need to comply with stricter laws and regulations for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Distributed energy generation of tomorrow depends on eco-friendly fuels from renewable sources. For the generation of heat and power with gas engines, green hydrogen from sustainable production represents a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.
All MWM gas engines can already be operated with a hydrogen admixture of up to 10 vol% without any technical modifications. To help plant operators achieve their climate goals, MWM now offers the engines of the TCG 3016 series in the output range from 400 kWel to 1,000 kWel for operation with hydrogen. TCG 3016 gas engines are suitable for permanent operation, base load supply, and peak operation with natural gas with a hydrogen admixture of up to 25 vol%. The hydrogen admixture of 25 vol% enables plant operators to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 8 percent compared to natural gas-only operation. “We offer our customers high-performance hydrogen-based energy solutions that help them reduce greenhouse gas emissions and use more sustainable energy sources,” says MWM Director Tim Scott.
MWM Retrofit Kit for Existing Plants
For existing plants of the TCG 3016 series, MWM offers a retrofit kit in two editions for the conversion of gas engines for operation with a hydrogen admixture of up to 20 vol% or up to 25 vol%. By making use of hydrogen admixtures as fuel, the plant operation is possible in accordance with regulations for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, plants with hydrogen-based gas engines form the basis for sustainable distributed energy generation of tomorrow.
