Friedrichshafen, 28 July 2011. In the last few days, Tognum, the specialist for propulsion and power solutions, has received an order to supply fifty distributed power generation plants powered by gas engines. The mtu Onsite Energy brand gensets will be going to the Bavarian genset manufacturer Aggretech, one of Tognum’s existing customers for diesel-powered gensets. The value of the order is in the double-digit million euro range and is thus the largest single order for gas-powered gensets ever received by Tognum. The first ten units are scheduled for delivery by the end of 2011 with the remainder going to Aggretech by the middle of next year.
“With Aggretech as a major customer, we have succeeded in expanding the high-volume sales business in the gas-powered genset sector,” said Christof von Branconi, Tognum Executive Board member with responsibility for the Business Unit `Onsite Energy & Components´. “This order also allows us further access to attractive markets in Russia and Asia.”
Aggretech is a global player in the construction of power plants in markets where 50Hz power grids are in operation. The first ten gensets which Tognum is due to supply to Aggretech are earmarked for power and energy generation in Russia with other units going to Asia. The potential for follow-up orders is good.
The gas-powered mtu Onsite Energy gensets which Tognum will supply to Aggretech are 20V 4000 L62 R units assembled in Augsburg and consisting of an engine and control system from mtu Onsite Energy together with a generator and base raft from Aggretech. After delivery, Aggretech will adapt the units to match the end users’ specific requirements. The scope of the order placed with Tognum is supplemented by a service concept tailored specifically to Aggretech’s needs. Each genset will deliver around 2 MW of electrical power and up to 2.6 MW of thermal energy.
