MAN Engines said it has supplied its first natural gas engine to Mexican OEM partner Cysore SA de CV for the first combined heat and power (CHP) plant to be built completely in Mexico.
This CHP plant, which went into operation in October, has an electrical power capacity of 470 kW and is powered by the MAN four-stroke, 12-cylinder E3262 LE202 engine. The 25.8 L displacement engine has a bore and stroke of 132 X 157 mm.
MAN Engines has been providing Cysore SA de CV with engines since 2015, although until now they have been used exclusively for biogas applications. Interest in the use of natural gas has increased since the deregulation of the Mexican energy market started gathering pace last year, the company said. With the help of MAN’s natural gas engine, Cysore’s new CHP plant has been supplying electricity and heat to a large food corporation in Celaya – the third largest city in the Mexican province of Guanajuato.
