Grupel has developed several projects aimed at improving the quality of residential and business life in countries on the African continent, by installing several diesel thermal power plants that contribute to a more reliable and robust energy supply.
In these markets, one of the biggest challenges is precisely related to the ability to produce electric energy capable of satisfying local needs, namely in rural and isolated areas.
One of the solutions is to create containerized Diesel Generation Thermal Power Plants. These plants are equipped with highly reliable diesel-fueled engines, as well as a state-of-the-art alternator and transformer, capable of providing a stable source of power production. In addition to providing direct power to the grid, the generators can also synchronize with the local power grid to increase power and support the grid to increase reliability on the grid. This is a process to optimize power consumption during peak supply periods.
In total, Grupel has designed, produced and installed 12 new thermal power plants for national governments across the African continent.
Each plant consists of two 20′ soundproofed containers, each equipped with Perkins® 4008-30TAG3 engines, 400V 50 Hz alternator and 0.4|30 kV transformer to increase the voltage to 30 kV, allowing the power to be directly injected into the Electric Grid.
