ith a total generating capacity of 311 MW, MAN Energy Solutions will supply 16 dual-fuel engines to three new power plants in the Republic of Ireland. These plants will act as back-up facilities to stabilize the power grid and support the integration of renewable energy.
"Our dual-fuel engines are an optimal partner for renewable energies because they can reach full power in a short time and thus respond quickly to any fluctuations in the power grid. Their dual-fuel capability also offers maximum fuel flexibility and reliability," says Martin Höhler, Head of Sales Power Plants, Europe, MAN Energy Solutions
The plant operated by Sustainable Development Capital LLP in Dublin's Grange Castle Business Park will be powered by 6 MAN 18V51/60DF engines to generate 111 MW of energy to support the Irish grid and reduce peak loads. A joint venture between Mountside Partners Limited and Bord Gáis Energy is building two new power plants, each using five of our MAN 18V51/60DF to generate 100 MW of energy and act as back-up for the grid. One will be located in Profile Park in Dublin, and the other near Athlone, Co. Roscommon.
MAN PrimeServ, the global after-sales brand of MAN Energy Solutions, will assist in the maintenance and repair of these two power plants. Under a ten-year service contract, MAN PrimeServ will assist the customer with scheduled maintenance work by providing both relevant spare parts and technical support.
