MAN turbines to power China, India

Published on: 

MAN Diesel & Turbo is targeting China and India. Starting in 2017, two MAN turbines based on combined heat & power (CHP) will deliver around 17 MW of power and 35 MW of heat in the provincial capital of Changsha.

The order, placed by Changsha ENN Heating and Power Co., comprises MAN’s THM series as well as an MGT 6100 GT, the newest available from MAN. At a new gas-fired CHP plant in Shanghai, a joint venture between Chinese SAIC and German VW Group, four sets of MGT 6200 GTs began operation in January. Each of the four turbine sets delivers electric power by driving a generator. Additional waste heat for producing process steam increases the plant’s efficiency to more than 80%.

The new CHP plant produces enough electricity to cover 100% of the annual demand in a nearby auto plant and gearbox plant in Anting, China, thereby reducing CO2 emissions by about 23%.

In India, MAN Diesel & Turbo SE, a wholly owned subsidiary of MAN SE, acquired 100% of the shares of MaxWatt Turbines Pvt., an Indian engineering company that services steam turbines for applications in power generation and mechanical drives. MaxWatt’s range of products will be integrated into MAN’s portfolio.

MAN’s workforce in India will increase to about 650 employees. MaxWatt’s HQ in Bangalore will be MAN’s first steam turbine production site in India.
