This plant now sold but we have other gas engines here:
This plant was in operation until decommissioning in April 2009. All the equipment, including the buildings, was recorded to facilitate the re-build. This station is stored inside and will be sold either ex works or if preferred rebuilt and commissioned.
The picture shows the engine house bottom left, the cooling radiators middle right, and the gas input station far right.
Summary of parts
- Three Wartsila 3.0MWe 16v 25g gas powered 11,000 Volts generating sets
- Associated auxiliary and motor control panels
- Pumps, lubricating oil heat exchangers, and air compressors etc.
- Gas train
- 12 air blast radiators – four per generating unit
- Five panel 11000 volts switchboard
- 500 kVA station transformer
- Medium and low volt cables
- Control instrumentation cables
- Steel frame metalclad building
- 15 metre 3 way chimney
- Clean and dirty oil tanks
All within a steel framed metal clad and insulated building.
The plant has been operated and maintained by our associates in accordance with the manufactures instructions and schedules. They will, if required, reassemble the whole station, re-commission and, if appropriate, maintain and operate the plant.
ENGINES and ANCILLARY PLANT
The station was built in 1997. The three generating sets are individually housed in concrete cells providing a high degree of sound attenuation.
Component parts have decommissioned, labelled, protected and stored by our associates to keep the re-build cost to a minimum.
The units have been operated and maintained in accordance with the manufacturers instructions and are being thoroughly overhauled prior to re-siting. They are available for inspection in our associate’s works in Hereford
