Emergency generating sets for the 4.0 conversion of a large shipyard in Spain

GEN2200HC, grupo electrógeno para planta de cogeneración

Genesal Energy has designed three special generator sets to reinforce the security in the power supply of one of the main Galician shipyards, a benchmark in Spain.
The purpose of the works is to convert the shipyard into a ‘smart factory’ improving all the processes and tools of its value chain and production centres to incorporate them into the new digital ecosystem. A 4.0 Shipyard.

The equipment was manufactured to complement the renovation works on the facilities of the famous shipyard. This works cover four fields of action: machinery and products, applications, people and company. The customer required three generator sets for the supplementary power supply station with a production capacity of 4.5 MVA with an option to extend it by 2.2 MVA.
If there was a power failure at the substation supplying the shipyard, there would be a serious problem, hence the importance of back-up power: our generator sets would be up and running within seconds. Guaranteeing the safety and optimal operation of the facilities.

  • WHERE:

    Galicia, Spain


    Equipment suitable for the saline environment & special type of control.

Versatility, a plus

The tailor-made generator sets are adapted to work in a saline environment and are 100% versatile. The control system is adapted to operate in parallel with the grid, and an automatic diesel fuel transfer system was designed for refilling from a central tank.

“We took into account the loads that are going to feed the equipment and the type of control that the client is going to use in the installation”, explained Engineering. The containers were also customised according to the final location of the machinery with the colour and design requested by the client.
