Rolls-Royce to provide combined heat and power for Raloy Lubricantes in Mexico
Raloy Lubricantes, one of the top four lubricant manufacturers and main supplier for automotive OEMs in Mexico, has selected the new mtu Series 500 generator set from the Power Systems business unit of Rolls-Royce to provide combined heat and power for its manufacturing operations in Santiago Tianguistenco, Mexico. The electricity will be used to power operations, while the heat from exhaust will be used to warm up thermal oil for mixing processes. Thermal energy from jacket heat will be recaptured and run through an absorption chiller to produce chilled water for cooling plastic bottles manufactured in Raloy’s sister company, Thermfluidos.
The new mtu Series 500 is the successor of the mtu Series 400 and offers 3.1% more efficiency and 30% more available power than its predecessor. It is available to run on both natural gas and biogas, and is H2-ready, allowing for a blending of up to 10% hydrogen. The family of generator sets cover the 250-550 kWe power range and peak efficiencies of up to 42.6 percent in this power class. They offer a climate-friendly and economical solution for the industrial and utility sector in addition to other applications. Available in 50 Hz and 60 Hz versions, these highly efficient units feature an optimized engine designed to greatly lower fuel costs and come equipped with an mtu Module Control automation system that monitors all genset activities and enables easy integration with other systems.
