MAN exhibits its diesel engines for power generation in the Middle East

The Middle East Electricity trade fair in Dubai is the first time MAN has exhibited its diesel engines for power generation to the Middle Eastern market. Power unit constructors will thus be able to view a wide range of efficient diesel engines with performance spanning from 180 kW to 1,117 kW.

The Middle East Electricity trade fair in Dubai is the largest exhibition event for the energy supply industry in the region with over 100 participating countries, providing the launch pad for future sales of MAN engines designed and produced in Germany for the Middle Eastern market. "From now on, we will be able to offer our customers a local service for every standard of reliable and durable MAN engine: Our broad product range enables us to offer dynamic engines with mechanical injection as well as with the most up-to-date Common Rail Technology" reveals Hubert Gossner, Head of Power MAN Engines. MAN diesel engines for peak load compensation, emergency power supply and basic load supply have been successfully sold for many years now in Europe, Asia, South Africa and America.

For the emerging market, MAN provides tried and tested, sustainable 6-cylinder in-line engines, as well as 8-, 10- and 12-cylinder V-type engines. Depending on their type of operation in PRP (Prime Power), ESP (Emergency Standby Power), LTP (Limited Time Power) or COP (Continuous Power), the engines can be operated for a maximum of between 200 and 8,000 operational hours per year. MAN engines are characterised by their high power spectrum, sturdy design and compact construction, whilst their low life cycle costs also win over many customers.

MAN will present visitors to Middle East Electricity in Dubai the 6-cylinder in-line engine, D2676 LE22x, as well as the 12-cylinder V-type engine, D2862 LE22x, showcasing a broad spectrum of its range of different engines and performance diversity.

The D2862 LE22x, an innovative new design, is the highest performance diesel engine for power generation which MAN is proud to be able to include in its portfolio. This 12 cylinder V-type engine from MAN has a displacement of 24.2 litres, with a 128 mm bore and a stroke of 157 mm. The V12 offers mechanical performance of 880 kW at 1,500 min.-1 and 1,117 kW at 1,800 min.-1 for power generation in Emergency Standby Power (ESP) mode. The use of modern technologies such as Common Rail Injection systems enables the efficient, 12-cylinder engine to achieve peak values for fuel consumption over a wide, application spectrum. Its dimensions of just 2,660 mm x 1,540 mm x 1,920 mm ensure its suitability for use as a container generating set.

The D2676 LE22x has been developed as a four stroke diesel engine with 6 in-line cylinders able to yield 12.4 litre displacement with its 126 mm bore and 166 mm stroke. The 6-cylinder offers back-up mechanical performance of 396 kW at 1,500 min.-1 and 415 kW at 1,800 min.-1 for power generation in Limited Time Power (LTP) mode. The basic engine has been successfully used for many years in MAN commercial vehicles and in agricultural machinery applications. A total of 100,000 units have already been produced. The efficient D2676 diesel engine mainly stands out for its long working life and low operating costs. The low life cycle costs are mainly achieved by its low fuel and oil consumption, the long service life of the components and the user-friendly basic maintenance of the lightweight (1,165 kg dry weight) and easily accessible, compact (2,518 mm x 1,080 mm x 1,406 mm) MAN engine. Both the D2862 LE22x and the D2676 LE22x meet the locally applicable, current exhaust emission standards in all performance ranges.

Entering the power generation segment will enable MAN to complete its product portfolio for the Middle Eastern market. MAN Truck & Bus has been represented via a regional office in Dubai since 2006 and supports a network of exclusive distributors and importers throughout the region.

The Middle East Electricity trade fair is taking place from the 11th to the 13th of February 2014 at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre. MAN´s products can be viewed in Hall S2 at Stand E20.
