100MWe COMMUNITY POWER STATION

2x STANDARD 50Mwe MODULES

2x 50MWe STANDARD POWER MODULES

The 50MWe is our base module for all power stations and Community Energy Centres, each consists of three air turbine and generator modules, each producing a single phase 17MWe output. The three individual phases are combined at the output stage into 3 phase output. Therefore for a 100MWe output we combine 2x 50MWe Standard Power Modules and for a 150MWe power station we combine 3x 50MWe Standard Power Modules running in parallel.

Operation

The whole Power Station is delivered to site containerised and based on 'plug and play' principles it is ready to operate as soon as it is coupled up with the other containerised components such as the Air Turbine container and the Generator container.

Highly Efficient

As demand for electricity rises and falls one line or mltiple lines can be switched off. Effectively the burners go into kindle mode, but are ready to fire immediately that the electrical demand increases.

Built in Redundancy

Because the Energy Centre is made up of multiple Power Modules, should one line go down the other Power Modules can move off kindling to full firing to compensate, whilst any minor problem on the faulty Power Module is corrected..Power Modules that are in kindling mode are ready to fire immediately that the demand increases.

Standard spares will be kept on-site to effect a speedy repair.

Major Features

Highly Responsive

The Energy Centre is highly responsive and is able to switch between kindle mode and full firing in seconds. This maximises the flexinbility of the Power Production, minimises cost and provides maximum security for a constant supply of electricity.

Future Expansion

It is a simple task to expand the Energy Centre from say 100MWe to 150MWe / 200MWe/ 250MWE/300MWE/350MWE/400MWe etc as every additional 50MWe Standard Power Modules adds 50MWe to the Power Stations output. This allows for planned expansion to occur with minimum fuss or delay. As they are all standard modules there will be no need for extra education or training, all Power Modules are identical.

Advantages

Because the Energy Centre uses an air turbine, there is no need for any boilers or steam production. This massively reduces the overall costs. Increases safety for the workes as there are no high pressure steam hazards. Also it means that the power station acan be located anywhere on the planet, even in inhospitable landscapes such as deserts. Unlike conventional power stations which need to be sited near aa dam or river, the Energy Centre does not need to be sited near any water source and can be sited wherever you want. It could be sited half way up a mountain so long as you can get fuel to the Energy Centre. The ideal location for an Energy Centre is right next door to a coal mine, in the middle of a forest or in the middle of an area growing the bamboo.
