This engine series deserves a spotlight
Siemens is renowned for their innovation in the power generator market - and one of their engines in particular; the SGE-EM series, might just be the most competitive of them all.
Let’s explore just what makes the Siemens SGE-EM engine the best in its 2MW engine class:
Highest efficiency and lowest emissions:
The SGE-EM series offers the highest electrical efficiency in the industry (45.4%) with its high-efficiency turbochargers and innovative pre-combustion chambers. The engine also produces the lowest emissions with its spark-ignited lean-burn unit.
Reduced maintenance, improved reliability:
Compared to its competitors that typically contain 16 cylinders in its design, the SGE-EM series engines contain 12 unique, high-volume cylinders capable of producing the highest displacement while providing a more robust solution that allows for much easier maintenance.
The SGE-EM is also the only ‘direct drive’ engine available in the 60 Hz market; completely eliminating the need for a gearbox and thus further reducing maintenance and improving reliability.
In an impressively compact design, the powerful natural gas-fueled SGE-EM series engines offer the smallest footprint of its competitive category.
Long life cycle:
The SGE-EM series engine has an impressive 90,000 hours of service prior to the prescribed major overhaul. Once the overhaul is completed, the life cycle is reset for another 90,000 hours – that’s over ten years of continuous duty operation.
The most successful power projects should be flexible. For example, what might start as a global adjustment mitigation plant turning on only a dozen times a year should have the capability to be transferred into a continuously operating plant, allowing for a facility to go completely off-grid in the future.
Luckily, the robust overall design of the SGE-EM series ensures optimal flexibility in a broad variety of conditions.
