Emergency power plant 12MW on the basis Caterpillar,

Gelenjik, the Krasnodar Territory, Russia (2008)

     The project and working documentation of the emergency power plant 12МW on the basis of f Caterpillar power machines is developed.

Power station consists of two gensets:

·         gas-piston units of a reserve electrical supply (type G3520С), 4 units in number, each is 1,95 МW, the general capacity is 7,8 МW;

·         diesel units of an emergency electrical supply (type 3512 MUJ), 4 units in number, each is 1,02 МW, the general capacity is 4,08 МW.

     The basic operating modes of the emergency power plant are the following:

  •      Parallel work with industrial power networks for an electrical supply of the inter site consumers (within the dedicated load);
  • reserve electrical supply of the inter site consumers carried out by the gas-piston generating units (within the dedicated load) at the switching-off of an industrial electrical supply 10 kV;
  • independent emergency electrical supply of the inter site consumers, executed by diesel generating units at the raised seismic activity around object, as a result of which the engineering communications delivering natural gas and electric power 10kV to the object can be destroyed. Gas-piston generating units and diesel generating units are arranged in the separate not connected premises for reliability improvement.

     During its operation diesel generating units (type 3512 MUJ) will be in a mode of “a hot bank” which is ensured by maintenance of temperature 40-500С at the expense of electroheating in a system of the engine cooling.

     Gas-piston generating units (type G3520С) are in a permanent operation, and their mode is defined by the Customer’s schedules depending on necessary load. For constant supervision and service of the emergency power plant four specially trained operators (mechanics) are foreseen. Automatics and electric equipment systems work without constant maintenance staff because of a high degree of automation. Thus, the designed emergency power plant completely corresponds to its function - guaranteed electric power supply of the mountain boarding house located in a zone of raised seismic activity (thanks to the double reservation).
