This 3MW Dual Fuel Generators, (Diesel and or Natural Gas), 12,470 Volts, 900 RPM, Fully Enclosed is being sold by a company to recover funds and storage space.
Product: 3MW Dual Fuel Generators, (Diesel and or Natural Gas), 12,470 Volts, 900 RPM, Fully Enclosed
Quantity: 2 units
The two skidded units are approximately 42.5 feet (12.9 meters) long and 3.6 meters wide and weigh approximately 70 US tons (140,000 lbs).
Manning model BEOA?L?30 “snubbers” which are the exhaust silencing units. These units are fully insulated so inspection was limited to visual examination to identify what they were via measurement and photographs. The silencers are 314 inches (12.3 meters) long and 74 inches (2.9 meters) in diameter. The manufacturer’s drawings indicate a weight each of 10,870 lbs each.
Three sets of electrical switchgear which are stored in a semi?truck trailer.
Three, Westinghouse, ground?neutral resistors which are sitting outdoors next to one of the containers.
Unit #1 hour meter indicated: 796 hours Manufactured circa 1986 suffered copper theft
Unit #2 hour meter indicated: 595 hours Manufactured circa 1992 (No enclosure)
There is a fuel oil totalizing meter for each engine fuel oil supply to the interior mounted day tank. The Unit #1 meter reads 40,875 gallons. Assuming a moderate heat rate of 7,000 btu/bhp?hour, a lower heating value of 128,450 btu/gallon, if the engine were operated at 3,000 kW on 100% diesel, this would yield approximately 186 operating hours. So, since the engines likely operated in the dual fuel mode much of the time, the hour meter reading of 797 hours seems to be reasonable. It’s also unlikely these units operated at 100% load during all of these hours further increasing the hour number from our estimate.
I labeled the units #1, #2 and #3. #1 and #2 are the containerized units and #3 is the non?containerized unit. #2 is the unit placed closest to the fence. I was unable to locate the engine manufacturer’s nameplate for unit #1 as it was missing from the original location. Engine serial numbers are already known to you.
Mechanical & Generator
1. The engine mechanical condition appears to be very good. I was able to remove several crankcase doors and barred the engine (rotated the crankshaft) to get the #12 lower piston at the top dead center position. This permitted a clear view of the cylinder liners from the crankcase (see photographs). I also checked the thrust clearance of the #11 and the #12 lower connecting rods and they moved freely on the crankshaft and were within tolerance I also removed the inspection covers on the left bank air box which permitted visual examination of the inlet ports on the cylinder liners, view through the ports into the combustion chamber and on cylinder #11 and #12 a view of the piston skirts. All of the internal components I was able to view appeared to be in almost as?new condition. I expect that the overall condition of the engines is such that they would not require an overhaul.
