olls-Royce has delivered 10 MTU 20V 4000 L64 FNER gas-powered generator sets. Each has a rated power of 2500 KW and features up to 84,000 hours lifetime to major overhaul (TBO). The next generation Series 4000 natural gas genset offers the highest power density and the highest kilowatt-per-square-foot ratio in its class. Based on the successful Series 4000 engine, it delivers from 776–2,535 kW, and has been optimized for hot and humid environments. Designed with cutting-edge technology, the new Series 4000 natural gas genset has been optimised for maximum performance and low emissions to deliver an economical, reliable, and sustainable source of power. A significant reduction in nitrous oxide emissions makes the natural gas genset a perfect fit for independent power producers (IPP) and combined heat and power (CHP) applications. With part-load performance down to 35% and a fast start option, the gas genset's operational flexibility is also ideal for demand response applications. Low emissions - 250 mg/Nm³, 500mg/Nm³, (@5% O2)NOx – are achieved without external aftertreatment, even meeting the new expected German unburned THC emissions legislation (<1300mg@5%O2).
The natural gas genset has an effective engine power of 130 kWm/cylinder – the highest power density in its class thanks to its compact design and small footprint. It offers superb performance at high temperatures and high humidity for use anywhere in the world and delivers 30% more power than its predecessor. All natural gas genset components are fine-tuned to ensure long service lives and deliver maximum uptime. Long service intervals and easy-to-maintain components mean low maintenance costs. Fast availability of spare parts and low engine oil consumption also help keep the new gas genset lifecycle costs lower overall, with cylinder head lifetimes potentially equivalent to TBO. The natural gas genset achieves efficiencies of up to 44.4%, delivering a significant improvement in fuel/energy utilization at high temperatures. The gas-powered Series 4000 gives you more power in less space while reducing fuel and maintenance costs, especially designed for hot and humid conditions.
