MTU Onsite gen-sets powering fully islanded power plant in Mexico

Rolls-Royce Power Systems has delivered MTU Onsite Energy gas and diesel gensets for a self-contained Mexican power plant that supports a giant pork processing facility in Puebla.

The 7.7-MW power plant, which is fully islanded because of a lack of grid capacity in the region, includes four new MTU Onsite Energy Series 4000 gas generators and one diesel generator. This is the first off-grid solution of its kind for MTU in the Americas.

A single 16-cylinder Series 4000 diesel generator system with an electrical output of 2 MW is tasked with absorbing greater load blocks than the natural gas units, offering long-term stability to the power plant. The diesel unit will run continuously with loads as low as 10 percent to minimize fuel consumption, allowing the natural gas units to produce more energy.
