5MWe ENTERPRISE POWER STATION

SMALL 5MWe ENTERPRISE POWER STATION

Mini Module

The 5MWe is a small Power Station designed to be located near a single enterprise (such as a coal mine) in order to supply electricity for the operation of that enterprise, This Power Station is not designed for Electricity to be sold to the country's power provider and put on the Grid. In order to do that a transformer would need to be sited at the Power Station (Transformers are not included as standard in our quotations).

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 effectively the burner goes into kindle mode, but it is ready to fire immediately that the demand increases.

Built in Redundancy

On larger Energy Centres made up of multiple burners aand generators, should one line go down all other lines will continue to operate. Effectively the burners go into kindle mode, but it is ready to fire immediately that the demand increases. With a single Power Module there is no built in redundancy but the Power module will handle situations where power is reqquired or not required, by kindling.

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 flexibility 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 5MWe to 50MWe as 2 secondary small modules can be placed alongside the original module at any time. This allows for planned expansion to occur with minimum fuss or delay. As they are both standard modules there will be no need for extra education or training, they will be identical modules.

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 like deserts. Unlike conventional power stations which need to be sited near a 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.
