Technical details for gas engines:
Engine technologies span lean burn from spark-ignition engines to high-pressure gas injection dual-fuel engines and from 4-stroke medium speed to 2-stroke low speed engines.
The most common technology for small to medium-sized power or Combined Heat and Power (CHP) applications are 4-stroke medium-speed, spark-ignition lean burn engines available in sizes from 4 MWe to approximately 9 MWe per generating unit.
For larger applications or where dual-fuel capability is called for, dual-fuel technology (i.e. involving a small pilot injection of fuel oil in gas operation mode) is available with unit sizes up to 50 MWe capacity with large 2-stroke high pressure injection engines.
Technical details for BWSC gas-fired power plants:
- Compact design possible with no need for fuel i.e. storage tanks
- Comply with required standards and regulations, such as ATEX, Machinery Directive, Low Voltage Directive
- Comply with most emission regulations without secondary abatement measures
- SCR equipment installation possible for additional NOx reduction
- Useable gas types:
- Natural gas of various quality
- Vaporised LNG
- Fuel-oils as pilot or back-up fuel.
- Possibility to boost overall fuel efficiency by cogeneration/CHP
- Low environmental impact and specific CO2 emission compared to other fossil fuel options.
