July 30th, 2021: A Tesla BESS battery burst into flames and burned for three days. The incident occurred during testing at the site of thesouthern hemisphere’s largest battery project. The 13-metric-ton lithium battery caught fire at the renewable energy plant, called the Victorian Big Battery, near Geelong, about 50 miles from Melbourne, Australia. The blaze then spread to an adjacent battery bank which had to be extinguished. The 300MW battery project is overseen by French renewable energy giant Neoen and Australia managing director for Neoen, Louis de Sambucy, has said that the company’s own “physical inspections and investigations are now underway”. The Victorian Big Battery site, a 300 MW/450 MWh battery storage facility, is regarded as the ‘poster child’ of the Victoria government’s programme of achieving 50% renewable energy levels by 2030. Neoen and Tesla’s other site – a 100 MW/129 MWh battery farm in Hornsdale in South Australia - was completed ahead of schedule and PHYSICAL INSPECTIONS has resulted in multi-million dollar savings for market players and AND INVESTIGATIONS consumers. Both sites essentially provide a regional power backup ARE NOW UNDERWAY for when renewable energy is unavailable. In February 2021 Neoen LOUIS DE SAMBUCY - MANAGING DIRECTOR FOR NEOEN announced that the Victorian Big Battery would use Tesla’s megapacks — utility-sized batteries produced at the company’s Gigafactory — and Autobidder software to sell power to the grid. Victorian Big Battery has a contract with the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO). As part of the deal. The site will provide energy stability by unlocking an additional 250 MW of peak capacity on the existing Victoria to New South Wales Interconnector over the next 10 years. Lithium batteries are generally made to deliver high output with minimal weight. Battery components are designed to be lightweight, which translates into thin partitions between cells and a thin outer covering. The partitions or coating are fairly fragile, so they can be punctured. If the battery is damaged, a short occurs. This spark can ignite the highly reactive lithium. Another possibility is that a lithium battery can heat to the point of thermal runaway. The heat of the contents can exert pressure on the battery, potentially producing an explosion. Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESSs) may include hundreds of lithium-ion batteries within an enclosure (often a shipping container) which are used to capture excess energy generate by solar farms, wind farms, data centres and more. While most BESS units feature battery management systems, one cannot always protect against worst-case scenario.

IN THE BALANCE: TACKLING IRELAND’S ENERGY CHALLENGE

N

ational grid operator Eirgrid is currently in the process of seeking bids from electricity suppliers to build new power plants in the Republic to combat a potential shortage of energy. As Government, regulators and industry fear that growing demand will leave the Dublin area in particular vulnerable to power cuts, Paul Brickman from Crestchic Loadbanks explores the Irish energy challenge.

A changing energy mix Following the UN’s outlined environmental targets for all countries, Ireland has committed to achieving ‘net zero’ emissions in its economy by 2050. In fact, the government has pledged to source at least 70% of Ireland’s electricity supply from renewables by 2030. As part of this transition, some carbon-intensive power plants are being wound down and decommissioned. This change in the energy mix, combined with increased demand across the state, means that the electricity network will need new power stations in late 2024 and early 2025 to guarantee supplies in the longer term. Gas-fired flexible power generation is likely to play a role in delivering supplies during the switch to low carbon sources, with investment currently underway to improve Ireland’s gas supply pipelines. Billions are also being pledged to build wind farms off the coast that will ultimately supply thousands of megawatts of electricity to the national grid. However, with these projects unlikely to be in operation for some years yet, demand for power is continuing to grow. Growth in demand Changes in the way we live and work mean an increased reliance on power. With homes and businesses embracing both smart living and electrification, and a transition to electric vehicles and heat sources now underway, demand for power is continuing to grow. On top of this evolution in the way we consume power, a recent report from Eirgrid shows that data centres and other large energy users will consume 27 per cent of all electricity generated in the Republic by 2030. An unsurprising statistic, given that Ireland is known as Europe’s data centre capital, with Google, Amazon and Microsoft all present in the area. The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) has expressed concerns about the disproportionate impact that the prevalence of data centres is having on power consumption in Ireland, stating: “When the system cannot meet the demand required, the system operators are required to take measures which can include load shedding whereby customers could

14

WORLDWIDE INDEPENDENT POWER

be without power for some time. The CRU therefore considers it necessary and proportionate to issue directions which promote and maintain the continuity, security and quality of supplies of electricity.” Securing the power: Next steps The race to address the deficit between demand and supply is on, with successful bidders likely to be notified in February or March, from when they will have until the last quarter of 2024 or early 2025 to build their plants and connect them to the electricity grid. According to a recent article in The Irish Post, industry sources warn that this is a tight deadline, particularly if any proposals meet planning or other objections. A similar auction held in January of this year attracted bids from power plants with the capacity to generate 6,138 megawatts of electricity. When existing operators were taken into account, only 25% of the power was new. With peak electricity demand in winter hitting around 5,500 megawatts an agreement to connect data centres with a requirement of 1,800 megawatts and applications in the pipeline for a further, 2,000 megawatts, there is still a shortfall. Meeting fluctuating demand In data centres in particular, as well as in other critical operations, diesel generators are a common solution to provide backup power if the standard electricity supply is interrupted. When power supplies falter, businesses that rely on power to operate can avoid costly and inconvenient downtime by investing in a backup supply. Diesel gensets are known for being robust and reliable, often sitting in a backroom - akin to an insurance policy in a drawer - waiting to be called upon should the worst happen. Therein lies the issue. While generators do indeed supply power in the event of an outage, they do need looking after. Just like a car engine, lubrication, cooling systems, fuel system and electrics all need to be tested to ensure faultless operation. Wherever a generator is installed, there is also a need for a load bank. These little-known bits of kit play a critical role in any power resilience strategy. Used to test the generator, a load bank creates an electrical load

that imitates the load that a generator would use under normal operational conditions. By applying the load to the generator, users can test the system in its entirely, ramping it up on full power to ensure that it will work in the event of a power outage. Conversely, not testing the system adequately puts the generator is put at risk of failure. With the fuel, exhaust and cooling system untested, along with the potential for embedded moisture, the system enters the very high-risk category, negating the very reason for which it was purchased. Mitigating the risk of power failures To mitigate this risk, all generators should be tested at least annually for real-world emergency conditions using a resistive-reactive 0.8pf load bank. This type of load bank provides a picture of how well an entire system will withstand changes in load pattern while experiencing the level of power that would typically be encountered under real operational conditions. Generally a stopgap measure, generators are typically installed to run as standalone alternatives to the grid to provide an alternative power source during power outages. As well as ensuring constant power in businesses and organisations operating in areas with fluctuating supplies, generators can also be used for grid balancing. With the grid requiring a constant frequency to operate, generators can be used to increase or decrease generation, correct frequency deviations and balance supply to demand - making them vital during periods of energy transition like those underway in Ireland. All around the world, the goal of a low carbon future and investment in renewables is paving the way for a cleaner, greener way of generating electricity. In Ireland, the evolving power mix is running concurrently with overinvestment in the data centre market, resulting in a need to expand capacity fast, While change is most definitely afoot, one thing is clear, the need to have access to reliable back-up is vital to ensuring continuity of supply in the years to come.

Our standard Industrial division covers a large range from 3 to 4000 kVA and we assemble our generating sets with various different prime Engines and Alternators in order to try our best to satisfy all kind of customer needs. WIBA’s unique selling point is very simple: we are more interested in creating long term relationships with our partners rather than just cashing in on generating sets. What does this mean? It means that not only do WIBA partners become a part of the WIBA family, not only do WIBA partners get the constant support they need to succeed in their markets : WIBA and the partner will face the local market together, hence this means we share the good , but also the bad, and it means once WIBA enters a specific market, it is long term. Q: WIBA Engines: Perkins, FPT, Baudouin, MTU, MAN, Doosan, Kubota, Yanmar – which brands are of particular interest to a User, Buyer, Specifier, Agent or Dealer? And what about alternator brands such as Mecc Alte, Marelli, STAMFORD, Linz. What particular models do you prefer working with? A: Carlo Ucciero explains: We work with all these brands mentioned because every specific engine or alternator brand is the best in its range. Our customer network is so ‘diversified’ that we could not just use one specific engine or alternator brand, and this is also because to cover a range from 3 to 4000 we have to use more than one kind as not all engine/alternator brands cover the complete kVA range required. Our control systems are Italian.

Q: What kinds of canopy protection/ containers can you supply with your gensets. Are these easily transportable? A: Carlo: We have different lines of production but all our canopies are designed and produced according to three main factors: 1. Noise level (never higher than 68dBA); 2. Quality and durability (even our basic products are suitable for intense climatic conditions); 3. Dimensions (the smaller the better in order to improve loading, transport solutions). Our generating sets inside their canopies are easy to transport thanks to their lifting hooks, their forklift space, and of course thanks to the heavy duty base frame and general structure of WIBA Generating Sets. Q: How do you customise your gensets for extreme climates? (Desert, maritime, alpine etc.) A: Carlo: Generator technical specifications are carefully studied along

with the client in order to clarify all working conditions before we quote. Before we quote for ‘customised’ solutions, we carry out a site visit along with the client (if possible) in order to allow our staff to be able to identify any possible hidden issues that could pop up. Q: What engine emissions systems can you offer customers looking to buy gensets from you? A: Carlo: We work side by side with our suppliers and our product range is constantly updated based on the engine OEM’s novelties to the industry. This again is another reason why we use more than just one engine brand, some brands are more in front than others, some are slower but stronger in long term, so as you can imagine, our relations with all brands allows us to offer any emission system the customer wants. Of course, Stage V is what we tend to suggest to customers.

Q: What standards do you meet? A: Carlo: Our genset products and factory standards meet CE standards and ISO. Q: Do you offer hybrid systems diesel/solar and - or engines which run on biodiesel or LNG/Biogas? A: Carlo: Not just yet but shortly we will be dedicating a team to this specific division.

Q: WIBA is an official sponsor of BLUES HIGHWAY – music organisation in Italy supporting the “Blues” globally? Can you tell us a bit about that? A: Carlo: We all have a bit of the blues in us in some way; the blues is a way of communicating to others in a smooth and musical way. The blues tells a story, and in the old days these stories were generally sad ones. Stories of sufferance and again - ‘Persistency’ - to survive and continue looking forward in life. It’s all about Persistence. We chose to sponsor this industry first of all because we love music and secondly to be slightly different to the others who generally sponsor the sporting industry. Of course, all of the festivals which BLUESHIGHWAY. IT organizes are powered by WIBA GENERATORS.

Q: Who supplies the components you put into your engines? A: Carlo: All components are originals and come from the engine OEM.

Q: Passion & persistency are the keys to success – why have you chosen this for your business slogan? What does it mean to you personally? A: Carlo: These words have a specific meaning. I was once told that I could never be more than a simple salesman. In my years I have seen so many businesses run badly and at a certain point of my life I decided to stop everything and take a different direction. Changing direction is not easy when you are already on the fast lane so you can imagine that the change of direction created a lot of discomfort for many. With Passion and with extreme Persistency and thanks to my partners who are close to me personally I am now here speaking with you about WIBA! So, my advice to anyone is : Nothing is impossible… Only real ‘Passion & Persistency’ will get the job done..

www.wipmagazines.com www.powermediagroup.co.uk

Q: What does WIBA has to offer that many other companies do not have? A: Carlo: It is very simple - other than the obvious answer anyone would give - we are great we are beautiful etc. etc., what we offer to the market is the opportunity to become a part of the industry and not be just a customer of the industry. Our Partnership formula is unique and not selfish. We invite anyone who is interested to contact us for further details. Just for quick info we are currently opening in Mali, Bangladesh, UAE, Ethiopia - and there is much more happening in the near future. Q: How is company expansion progressing? A: Carlo: We are expanding our network to all countries and invite any interested candidates & companies to please get in contact with me personally about it. Note: I always look after our customers personally and then, gradually, they are looked after by our team, but I will always be here in front line (as always) for my clients/ partners. I don’t forget my routes. We have our Rental fleet and Marine Division which will be “coming soon” too.

Q: Do WIBA gensets have a particular appeal to markets like data centres, banks, hospitals, airports, Telecoms, buildings sites, military, entertainment sector, NGO charity/relief work, local authorities, grid support, shipyards, marine, port authorities, governments? A: Carlo: Although WIBA is still a new entry to the Generating Set industry, thanks to our years of experience in this sector and thanks to our sales and technical team we are already supplying WIBA Generating Sets into Mali through our local partner who has WIBA Generators in stock in country (3 x 100 kVA, 2 x 60 kVA 2 x 30 kVA), in East Africa. Through our our WIBA Sales and Service point in Ethiopia we have supplied to three large engineering companies who are completing a number of complexes which require our 500 kVA gensets. Q: Would you like to explain to readers something of your background with generators? A; Carlo: Many WIP readers will probably remember me. I have been in this business for more than 20 years now and have visited most countries, companies already as Export Sales Manager for a major Generating Set producer. These 20 years taught me to love this industry and to love the international network which I created over the years.

to the North of Italy (and also further south of course), 7 km from the airport and 5 km from the central railway station. Our location was thought of - it didn’t just happen. By being so close to the sea port it means our Ex works prices are basically already FOB prices (Freight on Board)! ALL WIBA GENERATING SETS produced in our facilities in Napoli are truly “100% made in Italy”.

Q: Why have you chosen to be based in NAPLES? A: Carlo: Although I was born in the UK, we used to come to Napoli twice a year because my father is originally from Napoli. As a globally free person I could have started my activities absolutely anywhere in the world: Dubai, London, Singapore, Netherlands - anywhere. However, I decided that I want to do this right here in Napoli. My first reason is because I want to support our local youngsters some way by offering more job opportunities, and to help them grow into this wonderful Generating Set world. Secondly, because Napoli is the most strategic place to have a production facility. In fact, our facilities are literally 2 km from Napoli’s commercial seaport, literally 2 km from the motorway entrance that takes you all the way

HELPING THE NEEDY: 1100KVA GENSET FOR THE ROYAL MELBOURNE HOSPITAL, AUSTRALIA

C

ummins South Pacific has sold a C1100D5 (1,100kva) genset to the Royal Melbourne Hospital (RMH) as part of a comprehensive power supply upgrade. A company spokesman commented: “Another Cummins C1100D5 Generator has been successfully installed into a hospital in Melbourne, Australia. Cummins was chosen for this project due to our local team’s track record of success in delivering similar projects from design, installation and aftersales support. The scope of this project included supply & site mechanical installation of a C1100D5 into a locally-built acoustic enclosure rated 85dBA @ 1 metre-free field, free-standing fire-rated 6,750-litre fuel tank, site testing/commissioning & DLP maintenance plan.” Today, the RMH is one of the largest health providers in the state, providing a comprehensive range of specialist medical, surgical, and mental health services; as well as rehabilitation, aged care, outpatient and community programs. RMH’S care extends from the City through Royal Park and 32 mental health services across the north-western suburbs of Melbourne. We are a designated state-wide provider for services including trauma, and it leads centres of excellence for tertiary services in several key specialties including neurosciences, nephrology, oncology, cardiology and virtual health. There were 78,630 people provided with urgent care in the RMH emergency department in 2019/20 and 103,470 inpatient admissions across its acute and sub-acute services in 2019/20 The Cummins C1100D5 is an industrial diesel generator which has been designed to deliver power to this vitally important RMH site. Whether you require continuous duty, stationary standby or prime power, this generator set offers the versatility and reliability customers have come to expect from Cummins - a company which brings commitment to performance as well as one hundred years of engineering excellence, says the manufacturer. All Cummins generators can be used both industrially and commercially. These clean, modern generators with optional exhaust aftertreatment are suitable for either standby/emergency power, continuous or prime power applications. Cummins provides efficient, fully-integrated systems built for reliability in uncertain circumstances.

This 1000 kVA (Prime) / 1110 kVA (Standby) C1100D5 is a three-phase generator with a QST30G4 engine and HCI6K alternator. Producing 1602.0 amps per phase and a 380-440v output, this Open, Auto start generator offers Cummins’ tried and tested reliability everytime, says the manufacturer. A company spokesman commented: “This Cummins C1100 D5B canopied generator is a fully integrated power system providing optimum performance, reliability and versatility for stationary standby or prime power and continuous duty applications. It features a Cummins heavy-duty engine (rugged 4-cycle industrial diesel) delivering reliable power with low emissions and fast response to load changes.” The C1100D5 has a STAMFORD HCI6K alternator. This incorporates as sophisticated Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) in the Stamford Permanent Magnet Generator (PMG) system and is fitted as standard. The PMG provides power via the AVR to the main exciter, giving a source of constant excitation power

independent of generator output. The main exciter output is then fed to the main rotor, through a full wave bridge, protected by a surge suppressor. The AVR has in-built protection against sustained over-excitation, caused by internal or external faults. This de-excites the machine after a minimum of 5 seconds. Over voltage protection is built-in and short circuit current level adjustments is an optional facility. All generator stators are wound to 2/3 pitch. This eliminates triplen (3rd, 9th, 15th) harmonics on the voltage waveform and is found to be the optimum design for trouble-free supply of non-linear loads. The 2/3 pitch design avoids excessive neutral currents sometimes seen with higher winding pitches, when in parallel with the mains. A fully-connected damper winding reduces oscillations during paralleling. This winding, with the 2/3 pitch and carefully selected pole and tooth designs, ensures very low waveform distortion. www.cummins.com

CHP AND THE SAYURI GREENHOUSE COMPLEX IN RUSSIA

M

WM technology is providing 24/7 heat and power for the Sayuri Permafrost Greenhouse Complex located in the coldest inhabited place on Earth. The Sayuri agricultural complex is based in Yakutia in northeast Siberia. The region is faced with challenges such as temperatures fluctuating more than 100°C (180°F). Yakutsk is located on permafrost ground that does not allow the cultivation of fruits and vegetables so how can you make this possible? The solution is to construct a large greenhouse which offers crops heat and light for optimum growth and that prevents temperature extremes. To continually supply the Sayuri greenhouse complex with heat and power, the power plant for the energy generation was equipped with three power gensets. An MWM TCG 2020 V20 gas engine and two Cat G3516 gas engines now ensure the reliable operation of the greenhouse under permafrost conditions. Autonomous Energy Supply for Hassle-Free, Uninterrupted Operation The greenhouse complex was built for the year-round supply of the inhabitants of Yakutsk with affordable, high-quality fruits and vegetables. The project was developed and rolled out in several stages by the regional administration of Yakutsk and JSB Almazergienbank with the support of the government of the Republic of Sakha, Yakutia, and the Japanese investor Hokkaido Corporation. In the first phase, a pilot greenhouse with an area of 1,000 m² was commissioned in December 2016. By 2020, the greenhouse area was expanded to 3.2 ha. In 2021, the Sayuri greenhouse is to produce some 1,250 t of cucumbers and about 230 t of tomatoes. By the time the building work is completed in 2022, the production output is to be boosted by another 40%. The greenhouse is supplied with energy from the on-site power plant. In this way, it is possible to react speedily to production or climate changes. The independence from external energy suppliers allows the quick and flexible adaptation of the heat and power supply of the greenhouse complex in response to production or climate changes. The main production system is based on gas-fueled power gensets. On the premises, three gas gensets—an MWM TCG 2020 V20 gas engine with an electrical output of 2 MW and two Cat gensets with an electrical output of 1 MW each— produce heat and power for the greenhouse facilities. The latest extension, with the installation of the 2MW genset, was carried out by the MWM distributor -

Electrosystems Ltd. To make the containerized power plant resilient to fluctuating temperatures, Electrosystems Ltd. implemented a number of special modifications, e.g. additional heating systems in external water circuits and container wall insulation. MWM TCG 2020 V20 Gas Engine in CHP Operation: “Outstanding Reliability” During the first winter operation, the MWM TCG 2020 V20 gas engine took on the main load and delivered energy without any interruptions despite extreme temperatures of 60°C (76°F) below zero. The energy generated via combined heat and power (CHP) generation greatly benefits the TCO of the greenhouse complex: While the energy costs with power purchased from the public grid amounted to ₽ 4.86/kWh, the operation of the internal CHP plant with natural gas has brought down the costs to ₽ 2.50/kWh. Following the go-live in August 2020,

the MWM gas genset completed its first 1,500 operating hours in March 2021. In view of the positive experiences with the MWM gas engine, the Sayuri management plans on purchasing another MWM TCG 2020 V20 gas engine in order to supply the last building section of the premises with sufficient power. “We are impressed by the outstanding reliability of the MWM gas engine, which never failed during the entire winter season”, says Valery Garipov, representative of Sayuri. “Thanks to the TCG 2020 V20 gas engine, the profitability of the plant has also improved compared to when we used to purchase electricity.” The MWM TCG 2020 gas engines have been custom-tailored to the challenges of different applications. The MWM gas engines in the output range from 1,000 to 2,000 kWel ensure efficiency, reliability, flexibility, environmental compatibility, low TCO, and high profitability. www.mwm.net

RUSSIAN FEDERATION COMPANY BUYS 3.5MW GENERATOR

S

akhalin Machinery has just invested in a 3.5MW diesel generator manufactured by FRERK of Germany. The FRERK team took to a week to unpack the components and then install the genset on the island of Sakhalin. Sakhalin is the largest island in Russian territory. It is the northernmost island of the Japanese archipelago, and is administered as part of the Sakhalin Oblast Sakhalin. The island is 948 km (589 mi) long, and 25 to 170 km (16 to 106 mi) wide, with an area of 72,492 km2 (27,989 sq mi). It lies at similar latitudes to England, Wales and Ireland.. Sakhalin is situated in the Pacific Ocean, sandwiched between the Sea of Okhotsk to the east and the Sea of Japan to the west. Sakhalin is located just off Khabarovsk Krai, and is north of Hokkaido in Japan. The island has a population of roughly 500,000, the majority of which are Russians. Maintaining grid power is a problem in such a remote area which is why industry must rely on fixed and portable generators for electricity. FRERK says it offers all customers a full service: engineering, manufacturing, pre-assembling, packing and marking, Full Test before shipment, help onsite with Supervision works and installation works for all its equipment - which is made entirely in Germany. The new genset on Sakhalin will provide prime power for the oil & gas sector. Sakhalin Machinery is based on Sakhalin Island, with proven success in oil and gas, construction, fishing, forestry, etc. its client base includes EXXONMOBIL, SHELL, BP, ROSENEFT, SFERA and others. There are two major projects currently underway at this location. The Sakhalin I project, managed by Exxon Neftegas Limited (ENL), involves a production-sharing agreement (PSA) between the Sakhalin I consortium, the Russian Federation, and the Sakhalin government. Russia is in the process of building a 220 km (140 mi) pipeline across the Tatar Strait from Sakhalin Island to De-Kastri terminal on the Russian mainland. From De-Kastri, oil & gas products will be loaded onto tankers for transport to East Asian markets, namely Japan, South Korea and China. A second consortium, Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd (Sakhalin Energy), is managing the Sakhalin II project. It has completed a similar production-sharing agreement (PSA) with the Russian Federation. Sakhalin Energy is building two 800-km pipelines running from the northeast of the island to Prigorodnoye (Prigorodnoe) in Aniva Bay at the southern end. The consortium will also build, at Prigorodnoye, the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant to be built in Russia. The oil and gas are also bound for East Asian markets. With over 50 years of industry experience, Frerk Aggregatebau Germany has developed a leading reputation in the manufacture of electric power supply systems across a broad range of applications as founded during 1964 and has operated at its current location in Schweringen, Northern Germany since 1978. During this time the business has accumulated a great wealth of experience, which enables Frerk to offer modular power supply solutions, from initial concept through to handover. Furthermore the company provides service and technical support for the entire life of the delivered system if required. Since moving into its Schweringen headquarters the company has experienced a significant step-up in its capacity, beginning with the construction of a new production facility in addition to its existing four and a further four state-of-the-art test bays.

WORLDWIDE INDEPENDENT POWER

This was completed in 2001 and followed by an additional production bay during 2005 to expand the plant’s total production area to 11,000 square metres. Further expansion to 25,000 metres followed during 2008 and most recently in 2011, Frerk installed a new 1500 square metre storage building and additional office space. Finally, a 2100 square metre production bay for the reconditioning of generator sets was also erected. The company’s current product line extends to generator sets with an output of up to six MW per unit in both low and medium-voltage ranges. The applications for these vary from black-start engine generator sets to emergency power solutions and combined heat and power (CHP) packages. Frerk power generating systems are available in natural and biogas, diesel, heavy fuel and crude oil as well as dual fuel configurations, enabling the client to select the most appropriate design for the most economic fuel utilisation. Through the development of bespoke power generating systems, Frerk has established itself as a market leader in innovative design solutions. Furthermore in light of decreasing resources accompanied by the increasing price of fuels, Frerk is able to supply alternative fuels and power generating systems to provide clients with an economic power generation solution. Within this application the company

is able to provide systems including natural gas powered engines connected to combined heat and power units fed from any gas pipeline; biogas powered engines connected to combined heat and power units fed from sewage, landfill or biogas plants; associated gas from oil production powered engine generating electricity for the grid; dual fuel generating sets running on 50-95% natural gas and five per cent pilot diesel; heavy fuel oil (HFO) powered engines generating electricity for the grid in case there is lack of power because one water turbine power station does not provide sufficiently; and crude oil powered engines generating electricity for the grid. “HFO (heavy fuel oil) systems used to consist of heavy duty medium speed marine engines that were originally designed and manufactured for burning HFO with a viscosity of up to 700cSt. Because this fuel is given very little refinery treatment, the selling price is lower and transport efforts are marginal and therefore fuel oil costs are low,” Claus says. “Treating the HFO with special separators and viscosity control and regulating units can make the fuel made suitable for engines. The entire power station inclusive fuel treatment device is designed and installed by Frerk, preferably in a modular container design or alternatively in local erected turnkey powerhouses.” www.frerk-aggregatebau.com

FOUR GENSETS FOR A DATA CENTRE BASED IN NORTHERN EUROPE

A

data centre based in northern Europe turned to Visa S.p.A, Italy to supply it with reliable gensets to support critical functions in total safety, preventing any loss of data and or functionality of the databases, and to maintain the highest level of security at all times. Reliability, robustness and cutting-edge technology were three factors which were crucial to avoid any risks arising from the power failure of infrastructure, says the company. The data centre specified four alternators to meet its requirements for a power output of 3.6 MVA; it required two STAMFORD® S6 and two STAMFORD® P7 alternators, each with Class F (105/40°C) temperature rise and fitted with a STAMFORD® MX321™ AVR and PMG. To ensure low noise levels of the gensets and resistance to a degree of salt, this project required special canopies. STAMFORD® alternators were specifically selected for their reliability and high level of quality,” comments Gianpaolo Curi, Purchasing Manager, Visa S.p.A. Each genset canopy was fitted with oversized integrated fuel tanks, 2,500 litres for the two 700kW gensets and 3,000 litres for the 800kW gensets. Each genset was fitted internally with a lighting system, according to the customer specifications, plus external light support to allow for an additional lighting system.

Specific painting treatment was required for each canopy. The steel sheets were treated in advance with six different washing processes to prepare the surface before two layers of powder coating and final finishing paint with specific RAL colours, as per the customer specification. Maintaining a correct temperature inside the data centre - including air conditioning and proper ventilation for the storage devices - were fundamental factors in the specifications for the project. Fitted with a special controller, the alternators have been designed to run in parallel via the same emergency backup generators, operating

automatically in case of power failure, thus preventing any loss of data or functionality. Visa S.p.A of Italy, established in the 1960s, is an industrial business and operates in almost 100 countries worldwide. Visa produces over 5,000 gensets per year in its 45.000sqm plant, providing versatile high-tech energy solutions, in standard or customised version, guaranteeing a highly operational flexibility and qualitative standards in a market where it is regarded as a leading company. www.stamford-avk.com www.visa.it

LARGE-SCALE ENERGY RETROFIT REQUIRES A DECADE OF POLITICAL CERTAINTY AND PUBLIC FUNDING Energy use in buildings is a sector with large potential for energy efficiency improvement, both internationally and nationally, reports the ADE. To generate the level of retrofit needed to meet net zero, supply chains both in the UK and abroad will need to significantly expand to meet demand. However, there are barriers in the way supply chains operate that make it particularly difficult to initiate lasting change, such as the division of labour between trades. No country has yet overcome these barriers fully, but there is evidence of promising small-scale initiatives that begin to address them. The Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE) therefore welcomes the recent publication by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) of the International Review of Domestic Retrofit Supply Chains report. This report looks at different approaches to domestic energy efficiency retrofit supply chain development across the globe, including the US Better Buildings Neighborhood Program (BBNP), and BetterHome (in Denmark) and Energiesprong (originating in the Netherlands). The research was carried out by ACE Research (part of the ADE) The Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford, Ballarat Consulting and Innoweaver Ltd. Whilst there is no single country that is delivering buildings energy retrofit at the scale needed, the research did find exemplar projects which the UK could learn to help generate consumer demand for deep retrofit and to scale up energy efficiency investment in the UK. The research suggests that the development of a self-sustaining, large-scale market for deep energy efficiency retrofit requires support from a stable policy framework over a significant period of time – perhaps a decade or more – together with sustained public funding. Active engagement from the financial sector is also vital. The sector can increase the provision of finance and incentivise action through lower cost finance propositions. It can also play an important role in raising awareness about the benefits of energy retrofit and linking consumers with supply chain offers.

Matthew Farrow, director of policy for the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) comments on the latest IHS Markit / CIPS UK Construction PMI release: “The figures reflect growing confidence in the UK economy and the construction industry which is, of course, welcome. However, it is clear that the severe shortage of products and materials, as well as issues around transportation, are now having an adverse effect on lead times and putting inflationary pressure on prices. “There is no easy fix to this problem, other than medium to long-term changes in our approach – I would hope that this leads to smarter design through the use of alternative materials, which could also have the added benefit of creating less carbon intensive buildings and structures and accelerating our path to Net Zero.” A new Net Zero guide targeted at SMEs working in the built environment has been jointly released by the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) and sister organisation, the Environmental Industries Commission (EIC). Aimed at small and medium sized members of both of these business associations, the guide highlights the steps that should be taken towards a carbon free future, explores how Net Zero is already influencing client decision making, and outlines how to meet new client expectations while seizing the business opportunities created. The guide also provides a handy reference to previously released publications, reports, pledge schemes and sector plans, directly sign-posting to the most important and relevant sources of information. Commenting on its launch, Dr Sarah Prichard, UK managing director at Buro Happold, and chair of the ACE and EIC Net Zero group, said: “We designed this guide to help SMEs with practical and tangible advice to support them to make the right choices on their Net Zero journey.

AMPS

AUGUST 2021

EXACTLY WHO ARE AMPS? LET’S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK

A

MPS is a widely-recognised professional trade body and the industry voice for the UK genset sector and associated Products. AMPS stands for the Association of Manufacturers and suppliers of Power generating Systems and ancillary equipment. The AMPS Association represents our industry with major regulatory bodies such as Ofgem, BEIS, DEFRA, Environment Agency etc. and facilitates lobbying for the industry at Government level. We also engage with other associated trade bodies such as BEIS, DTI, ACE, ADE, ECA, EIA, EIC, CEA, CPA, Dept. for International Trade etc. The AMPS Council guides and makes key decisions on behalf of the Association’s membership and is formed of elected representatives of member companies. The Council meet several times a year, but members also attend sub-committee meetings and are often working hard behind the scenes to plan and work to better the aims of the Association. A number of events including Conference, Awards Evening, Golf Day and more are held annually with opportunities for networking and building business relationships extended to all members. The AMPS Technical Committee (TC) is at the forefront of industry knowledge and is also composed of a wide range of volunteers who give their time and knowledge to assist the membership as well as sitting on a range of national and international committees to guide and help set industry standards and regulations. It leads on regulation and legislation to change policy and provide guidance on issues such as Emissions, Changes to fuel composition, Grid Codes and Compliance, through its reputation and influence at Government level. The aim of the AMPS Technical Committee is to provide AMPS members with clear technical guidance on those issues that are relevant to their businesses and to provide access to industry experts who can provide advice on technical matters. Through its involvement with National and International standards bodies, Government and regulatory authorities, it aims to represent AMPS members interests and to influence, communicate and understand the relevant technical standards for our industry. Regular updates and communications are presented in a simplified and easy to understand manner via Current Thinking newsletters. A dedicated secretariat looks after the day-to-day running of the Association overseen by the Vice President and regular updates, news and communications including AMPS Power magazine are published quarterly.

WHO CAN JOIN AMPS? AMPS members are leading designers, manufacturers, suppliers and installers of reciprocating diesel and gas engine electrical generating systems of a single unit output up to 5MW. This equipment has a broad spectrum of applications which include industrial, commercial, military, marine and offshore installations for standby and base load electrical power, landfill gas projects, cogeneration / combined heat and power systems, complete power stations and major turnkey power generation projects. They are supported by manufacturers and suppliers of a wide variety of ancillary equipment. Here’s an overview of who we represent, whether you’re interested in becoming a member yourself, or would just like a clearer understanding. * Manufacturers –The UK has lost a lot of its manufacturing over recent decades but when it comes to buying the best generating sets and components customers around the world still value the unrivalled quality, reliability and attention to detail that comes from knowing their equipment was manufactured in the UK by passionate and experienced engineers. * Suppliers & Distributors – AMPS’ power generation suppliers provide

WORLDWIDE INDEPENDENT POWER

the components the manufacturers need and/or the assembled sets the end-user requires, along with an invaluable wealth of expertise and industry know-how. * Service providers – How do you know which generating set you need? How do you get the right paperwork? How do you ensure your generating sets work when they’re really needed? We have a large number of members who provide advice, consultancy, installation and maintenance, because even the best generating set in the world will fail if it isn’t properly specified and serviced. * Rental Companies – Not everyone needs generating set power all of the time. From World Cup Finals to music festivals, from building sites to hurricane relief, the rental providers are there to supply customers with whatever temporary power solution they may need. * Related providers – Whether you need a solution for cleaning stored fuel, a fire suppression system or want your generating set to work as part of a CHP system, we have members who specialise in all the related products and services.
