MHI boxes clever with power system in container

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (TYO:7011) has completed the development of a transportable power generation system driven by a gas engine and designed like a shipping container.

MHI said the Meganinja is based on a concept of ‘quick transport, quick installation and quick generation’ and as such can be up and running within 24 hours after arrival at its site.

Demand for the product will come mainly from emerging economies where power shortages remain common in some regions and for emergency power generators, said MHI.

All equipment necessary for power generation - including a gas engine, generator, fuel gas compressor and control panel - is fitted inside the 12-metre-long container.

The unit can also accommodate cogeneration through simultaneous use of a container for waste heat recovery incorporating a hot water heat exchanger and exhaust gas steam boiler. Both types of container can be transported to their destination by trailer.

The Meganinja has a generation output of 1500 kW and multiple units can be easily interconnected to expand output further.

Conventional stationary generating equipment requires time-consuming installation work, often up to a month while foundations and pipe and wire connections are made, but MHI stress that the Meganinja ‘merely needs to be brought to its installation site, where it normally can be made ready to operate within 24 hours’.

MHI has already signed a deal with China’s Dongguan Xinao Gas Company for two units of the Meganinja.

MHI is also due in October to finish building a new engineering centre in Shanghai specifically for gas engine distributed power generation. The centre is intended to respond to growing demand for distributed power generation systems in the Chinese market.
