PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Grupel has recently developed and supplied a project to support the new Tulum Airport in Mexico, the largest in the Yucatan Peninsula after Cancun International Airport.

This project consists of three generator sets, one 528kVA with a Grupel engine, operating in parallel with the grid, and two 845kVA with a Baudouin engine, operating in synchronism.

The three units are equipped with fuel transfer pumps for external tanks installed on site, and exhaust silencers for noise attenuation.

 

Tulum’s Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport, which opened in December 2023, has an infrastructure capable of receiving aircrafts, passengers, cargo and goods from Mexican and international air transport.

It has capacity for 5.5 million passengers a year, a 3,500-meter-long runway, a 75,153-square-meter passenger terminal, 500 parking spaces and 13 departure lounges, as well as other commercial spaces, restaurants and waiting areas.

 

Ensuring the power supply through generator sets is ideal, since, in the event of a grid failure, this equipment takes over the load of the facility, maintaining the normal functioning of the entire infrastructure.

 

The use of power generators in parallel is quite common on occasions when it is necessary to increase the total power of the system, make it more reliable and also reduce the associated costs.

Synchronization between generator sets means connecting two or more units (or one unit and the grid) so that they can supply energy together and thus guarantee greater power, adaptability to load variations, greater reliability and even more efficient consumption.
