Reducing emissions in China through CHP

MAN is supplying a Chinese customer with a complete package for decentralised production of heat and power. In collaboration with the Chinese company Guangdong Liyu New Energy Science & Technology Co. Ltd., MAN Diesel & Turbo is supplying a compact gas turbine package for the decentralised production of heat and power. The end user is ENN Ubiquitous Energy Network Technology Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of the ENN Group, one of the largest private energy companies in China.

At the heart of the unit is a MAN MGT series gas turbine which will produce approximately 6 MW of power and 12 MW of heat for an industrial zone in Huai’an (Jiangsu province). This compact unit utilises over 80% of the energy stored in the fuel through CHP technology. "This order from China for the MGT series emphasises how the energy production market is developing: there is an increased focus in the People's Republic on emissions reduction and maximum efficiency in heat and power installations", according to Armin Haller, Senior Vice President at MAN Diesel & Turbo for the Sales & Contracts Industries Division.

As with previous projects undertaken by MAN Diesel & Turbo in China, the technology replaces an existing coal-fired installation. This is a further contribution to the Chinese government's aim of lowering emissions significantly by producing energy through highly efficient, gas-powered installations, thus reducing negative impacts on the population and the environment. Nadège Laurent, Project Manager Sales at MAN Diesel & Turbo, said:

"The Chinese energy sector has a target of making further reductions in emissions by 2020. We see the customer's short lead time as a positive indication of the urgency with which Chinese industry is pursuing these objectives." MAN Diesel & Turbo is able to refer to many projects throughout the world which reflect the growing demand for low-emission or zero-emission energy production.
