Container based cracker gas engine CHP for remote off-grid CF12_1
Project duration: 04/2021–03/2024
Aim of project:
The goal of the subproject is the development of a container-based NH3 CHP plant for a stationary (“remote off-grid”) application in the power range of one megawatt.
The development steps include a first literature research, various evaluation steps of critical components of the gas engine, up to the detailed design and implementation of the container CHP plant including the integration of the NH3 cracker and necessary safety equipment.
After a multi-stage commissioning, various test runs are carried out in which the general mode of operation is tested and operating strategies, including stationary and flexible start/stop operation, are optimized. The focus will be on optimizing efficiency and minimizing exhaust emissions.
Finally, the results will be used to plan further or comparable plants.
