Generator set supplier FG Wilson has delivered a vital power solution for a major new medical centre in Russia.
FG Wilson’s Russian dealer Technoserv has commissioned and installed gas generator sets and combined gas heat exchanger systems for a power station that runs Hospital VIT (pictured) in Nizhny Tagil City, in the Ural district.
The new hospital specializes in surgery, cardiology and orthopedics in both children and adults.
Technoserv designed the power plant based on four FG Wilson PG750B gas generator sets, while FG Wilson also supplied additional auxiliary equipment such as circuit breakers, remote radiators, auxiliary water pumps and exhaust silencers.
The units work in base load operating mode in the parallel with the local mains grid at full load. For water heating, a combined heat and power (CHP) system was used in conjunction with a local Russian manufacturer CTM.
FG Wilson – which is headquartered in Northern Ireland – said that in order to ensure the maximum efficiency of natural gas consumption, the power solution operates in ‘tri-generation’ mode, producing not only heat but also cooling – the CHP systems supply exhaust gas-heated water to the chemical absorption chiller for cold water produce, meaning the total electric power plant capacity is 2.4 MW and around 2 MW thermal or cold water power.
