Working in conjunction with subsidiary company AJ Reservkraft in Sweden, AJ Power recently despatched an AJ2845 generating set for use in a recycling plant in the Stockholm area.
The recycling plant will produce biogas from organic waste for use in vehicles and generate electricity and heat from combustible waste for the local community via a combined heat and power plant. The AJ2845 is powered by a MTU 20 cylinder 4000 series engine, coupled to a specially selected oversized Newage Stamford twin bearing frame 8 alternator generating at 11,000 volts. The InSight 6000 generator control panel and protection system was installed on the set enabling automatic synchronising with the utility supply on site. As part of the contract terms, a factory acceptance test was carried out at the AJ Power factory in the high voltage test facility using transformer and high voltage switchgear. The tests included proving various load step scenarios and an extended load run.Back to News
