POWER PLANT IN VENEZUELA
12 X 2875 kVA - MTU engines (total 15 MW)
Generators inside 40” containers including step up transformers 13.8 / 0.48 kV fuel tank 500L with automatic filling, double doors on each side of the container for easy maintenance of the units, control panel accessible inside and outside the container, fire detection system and solar heating protection on the roof.
Power plant designed to operate in base load (24h/7d) to supply power to the main. Each generator synchronizes individually with the main busbar.
High temperatures required the addition of heating protection systems on the roof of the container
The configuration of the power plant allows the addition of more modules (generators in containers) to increase the supply of power in the future
