From 9. to 11. June 2015, Rolls-Royce will be showcasing its portfolio for power supply solutions at the Powergen Exhibition in Amsterdam (Stand 1C20). Products from MTU Onsite Energy and Bergen Engines include high-speed and medium-speed diesel and gas gensets ranging from 24 to 9,400 kWe. MTU Onsite Energy and Bergen Engines are part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems within the Land & Sea Division of Rolls-Royce.

“At Powergen 2015, we are showcasing the entire range of high-speed and medium-speed gas and diesel gensets available from a single source at our locations in Europe,” said Andreas Görtz, Director of Sales, Power Generation, Rolls-Royce Power Systems. Widely varying incentive systems throughout Europe mean that the demand for gas gensets differs from country to country – currently, it is stagnant in Germany, Spain and France but expanding in Great Britain and Italy. “We are absolutely certain that their benefits in terms of emissions, flexibility, quick start capability and efficiency mean that gas systems such as those used in compact cogeneration modules will prove essential for the energy transition process in Europe.”  

At Powergen Europe 2015, MTU Onsite Energy is presenting its product portfolio for high-speed gas engine systems up to 2,530 kWe and diesel gensets up to 3,250 kWe. The exhibition stand will include a model of a gas genset based on MTU Series 4000 engines. The heat and power generating systems produce 1,010 to 2,530 kWe and are available as 8-, 12-, 16- and 20-cylinder configurations. The exhibits also include a diesel genset model based on the new generation of MTU Series 2000 engines. The new genset is quieter, more efficient and more compact than gensets previously available. It is equipped with common rail technology and generates up to 1,120 kWe, providing a 12% increase in range compared to its predecessor. Distributed power plant solutions from MTU Onsite Energy cover both continuous power generation needs as well as emergency and peak generation applications. They perform a critical function in special-purpose applications such as airports, hospitals and computer centers and can also be used as base and peak load power supply plants.

MTU Onsite Energy introduced the further developed Series 4000 natural gas engine  in 2014  

The medium-speed power generation solutions in the Rolls-Royce range come from Bergen Engines. At Powergen Europe 2015, Bergen Engines is showcasing a model genset based on the 20-cylinder, Type B35:40 gas engine. Electricity generation systems based on these gensets are in operation in greenhouses and power plants in Holland, Great Britain and the Czech Republic for example. Diesel- and gas-powered gensets from Bergen Engines cover a range from 3,700 to 9,400 kWe whilst complete electric power generation systems can offer total outputs in excess of 200 MWe. Their proven technology, high levels of availability and low operating costs mean that these engines are popular with operators around the world. Their robust construction and superior electrical efficiency ratings of up to 48.5% are particular features of these generating plants. Typical applications include base-load generation for electricity providers, grid load-balancing and peak-load supply, combined heat and power generation, combined heat, power and cooling plants, emergency power and mechanical drive power in the oil and gas industry.

The Bergen Engines generator set based on a 20-cylinder B35:40 medium speed gas engine and delivers up to 9,400 kWe.
