olls-Royce mtu has supplied 10 x MTU "20V 4000 L64 FNER units to Egypt. The next generation Series 4000 natural gas genset is said to offer 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.
A spokesman comments: "mtu natural gas generator sets utilise cutting-edge technology that offers combined heat and power (CHP), as well as combined heat, power, and cooling (CHPC) for ultimate efficiency. All of our generator sets combine the highest performance with the lowest emissions in the 250 kWe – 2,535 kWe power range. And now, with the ability to use a blend of natural gas and hydrogen, our highly-efficient gas gensets powered by the mtu Series 4000 are even more eco-friendly and future ready. They also have the possibility to be converted to 100% hydrogen, for when hydrogen is more widely accessible and economical as a primary fuel."
The mtu Series 4000 natural gas genset offers the highest power density in its class. Designed with cutting-edge technology, the mtu Series 4000 natural gas genset is optimized for maximum performance and low emissions to deliver an economical, reliable, and sustainable source of power. They are ideally suited for a variety of applications including utility, industrial manufacturing, hospital and data centres, among others.
The mtu Series 4000 system comes with a heat recovery unit that provides the basis for optimized auxiliary efficiencies. The system includes generator, ignition system, motor interface panel (MIP), Automation system (MMC) and knock detection.
