INNIO announced the successful commissioning of a modernized district heating plant with Waukesha VHP 9394GSI rich-burn gas engines with grid code certification supplied by its authorized channel partner for Waukesha gas engines, S&L Energie-Projekte GmbH (S&L).
INNIO said the plant meets high overall efficiency (electrical and thermal) and low emissions. For the project, S&L provided four packages of INNIO’s Waukesha gas engines to Stadtwerke Lutherstadt Winntenberg GmbH in Germany. The 9394GSI engine has a bore and stroke of 238 X 216 mm and offers 2500 hp at 1200 rpm.
“In comparison with the previous combined heat and power (CHP) plant, the overall efficiency of the new CHP plant is significantly higher. Our testing shows that the modernized district heating plant achieves a significant overall efficiency that is well above the guaranteed zero tolerance value of 95%, and the emission values are well below the legal national requirements,” said Hans-Joachim Herrmann, executive director, Stadtwerke Lutherstadt Wittenberg GmbH. “S&L completed the project on time and also provided a solution of INNIO’s Waukesha gas engines that not only met, but exceeded our performance and emissions requirements.”
