The MWM gas engines of the TCG 2020 series are perfectly geared to the challenges of a dynamic market environment. Our models in the output range of 1,000 – 2,000 kWel meet the high requirements of a broad range of applications and guarantee efficiency, reliability, flexibility and environmental sustainability, together with low lifecycle costs and high profitability.
Description – Gas Engine TCG 2020
TCG 2020 – High Profitability Thanks to High Efficiency
- Improvements of the intake duct and spark plug provide higher efficiency compared to predecessor model
- Miller valve control times increase genset efficiency
TCG 2020 V12 (1.0) – Increased Efficiency and Extended Useful Life in the 1 MWel Capacity Range
- For all natural gas and biogas applications in countries with 50 Hz networks
- Longer maintenance intervals for all natural gas applications extend useful life by two years
- Optimized electrical efficiency of 43 percent (under ISO conditions) for natural gas applications
- Optimized lubricant management
- Lower internal consumption through higher mixture cooler temperatures for natural gas applications
TCG 2020K – Optimized for Isolated Operation and Non-ISO Conditions
- Load response in only seven steps
- Fast and reliable supply in the event of grid failures or in isolated operation
- Special 1,000 kWel variant available for high altitude setup and different intake air temperatures
Higher Efficiency and Lower Pollutant Emissions
- Smaller dead spaces in combustion chamber ensure more complete combustion
- Reduced fuel consumption and CO and HC emissions
- This enables gas savings of up to 15 percent a year and increases the profitability of the plant
Higher Efficiency and Long Maintenance Intervals
- Effective crankcase ventilation increases efficiency by utilizing the returned combustible blow-by gas
- Optimized blow-by return and improved separation of the gas phase and liquid phase enable longer maintenance intervals for the turbocharger thanks to the clean intake air
K Editions: Maximum Output at Low Costs
- Improved output capacity of TCG 2020K under non-ISO conditions and excellent load response through optimum turbocharger design with broad performance map
- New turbocharger TCR 16 for TCG 2020 with water-cooled bearing housing eliminates need for separate maintenance stages for the turbocharger
- TCG 2020 K1 is a for 1000 kWel optimized version of the TCG 2020 K gas engine with a focus on high efficiency at low cost of investment
High Reliability - Gas Engine TCG 2020 / TCG 2020 K
Few Interruptions Due to Long Maintenance Intervals
- No more than two interruptions a year due to scheduled maintenance
- Longest 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
High Reliability through Mature Drive Technology in 60 Hz Range
- Engine can be operated with an optimum speed of 1500 RPM.
- Lower speed ensures stable and complete combustion, resulting in lower CO emissions and less component wear and tear
