Consulting engineers who want to further educate themselves about microgrid and distributed generation projects have a valuable resource in the form of a three-part series of white papers from Rolls-Royce, manufacturer of mtu generator sets and full-system solutions. Microgrids are one of the many ways Rolls-Royce is decreasing reliance on conventional energy sources to bring us closer to a decarbonized, healthier planet.
The Covid-19 pandemic, with its new norm of social distancing, has made it a challenge to conduct generator set factory acceptance tests in person. Fortunately, for the past several months, Rolls-Royce has made it possible to virtually “witness” the testing of mtu equipment from nearly anywhere in the world.
The Raleigh-Durham metro area is one of the fastest growing markets in North Carolina and America. Fredericksburg, VA is experiencing its own boom, with accelerated growth expected when the Fredericksburg Extension brings the I-95 HOV/HOT lanes to the city next year. To support this growing need for critical infrastructure and backup power, Curtis Power Solutions has opened two new offices to provide power generation hubs that better serve customers in these regions.
The increasing demand for product offerings in the power generation market has led to the need for updated facilities, equipment and processes to safely handle customer requirements. As a result, according to an October 2020 article in Diesel Progress, Rolls-Royce has announced a $13.9 million investment in its Power Systems business unit for the expansion of its mtu power generation manufacturing facility in Mankato, Minn.
The success of the first-ever MTU Virtual Power Generation Symposium, and in particular the Curtis Power Solutions (CPS) booth, shows that mtu, a Rolls-Royce Solution, continues to meet and exceed the challenges of sharing information and ideas within the power generation community – even during the Covid-19 pandemic!
MTU is pleased to announce that the Engineer’s Guidebook has been updated
November 30 – December 3, 2020 Even in the midst of a pandemic, engineers need to connect with each other and advance the sharing of information and ideas within the power generation community. That’s why Rolls-Royce, for the first time ever, will be conducting its upcoming MTU Power Generation Symposium in a virtual setting.
What will your power look like ten years from now? Chances are, you’ve been thinking about incorporating renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power. Ideally, those sustainable power solutions will not only reduce your carbon footprint but will also put you more in control of your power management.
Using Data from Power Generation Systems to Improve Reliability and Performance of Mission-Critical and Life Safety Systems
How can advanced digitalization improve the reliability and performance of high-tech onsite power generation systems? As the Rolls-Royce Power Systems Digital Solutions unit is proving, digital transformation can help accelerate the time to resolve system issues and prevent generator failures.
The rising demand for more reliable energy solutions doesn’t have to be at odds with the increasing need for a cleaner world.
