Grupel supplied a 2200kVA diesel generator (STP) for emergency operation at a Water Treatment Plant in Qatar. The genset includes Perkins 4016-61TRG2 engine with industrial air filters and Stamford PI734G1 alternator, installed in a 40-foot container.
The generator set was installed at a reverse osmosis water treatment plant in Qatar for feeding the essential load that is required for protecting sensitive equipment of the plant in case of a main failure.
Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane to remove ions, molecules, and larger particles from drinking water.
Due to its implantation near the sea, the generator was designed and equiped for operating under extreme weather conditions, like high temperatures, high level of humidity and high dust levels. The generator has filters at the air inlets applied in a separate room for easy maintenance and water separator for filtering the diesel supplied. It also has a separate control division, in which there are installed the power and control panels, with air condition to keep the temperature at the desired operating level.
The cooling system is also installed in a separate division of the container, due to the high level of dust that exists in the air flow.
Also a highlight is the generator operation is completely automatic. Due to the equipment’s importance to this reverse osmosis plant in Qatar, this genset starts-up automatically and feeds the essential equipment in less than 10 seconds.
