Helping utilities provide a secure, reliable power supply

Baseload electricity

Utility_Energy and Storage_16-9_Baseload-electricity

Supplying your customers with a reliable power supply can be a challenging business. You might only have one plant to work with. Your grid might be unstable. External factors can make things difficult. Your system must react quickly to load requirements and supply cost-effective energy. You rely on fuel flexibility and must be able to expand your plant if demand grows in future. The sale of electricity is your main income. Sometimes the terrain you operate in can be challenging or very remote.

MAN Energy Solutions has a long history of supporting clients who face these challenges. We often act as an EPC partner, covering all steps of your project. In a scenario where guaranteeing base load is the main concern, we might recommend thermal power plants. These plants are particularly robust and operate at great fuel efficiency of up to 50% in a single cycle. In addition, thermal power plants have a relatively short construction time and can be run with various fuel options. Other plants that may be used are LNG to power, combined heat & hybrid power solutions.

Grid stability

Utility_Energy and Storage_16-9_Grid-Stability

A reliable steady power supply is a crucial part of the energy equation. Heavy peaks and the fluctuations of renewable energy supplies influence your grid stability. To successfully integrate wind and solar, you need new techniques for managing and storing energy – and fast reactions to regular frequency changes. And you need backup plants to cover supply shortages or sudden peaks in load demand.

MAN Energy Solutions hybrid power solutions easily integrate wind and photovoltaics without compromising on reliability of supply. A wide range of operating modes means increased fuel efficiency and an overall reduction in energy costs. Integration of variable and cost-effective energy storage solutions makes sure your customers can rely on you even in peak demand times. You can easily reach your decarbonization target thanks to our full range of hybrid power products and services.

Energy storage

Utility_Energy and Storage_16-9_Energy-storage

Storage plays a key part not only in supplying CO2-neutral energy, but also in running your machines at optimum load range for as long as possible. Energy storage solutions need to balance high and low demand times and supply “black start” capacities in case of outages. MAN Energy Solutions offers a number of effective energy storage solutions, including cutting-edge battery energy storage systems (MAN BESS). Our highly efficient electro-thermal energy storage (MAN ETES) systems couple the electricity, heating and cooling sectors, converting electrical energy into thermal energy. Innovative molten salt energy storage systems (MAN MOSAS) boost the availability of renewable energy sources, stabilizing the grid and helping to achieve base load capabilities.

In storage, there is big scope for innovation. At MAN Energy Solutions we are focused on perfecting our power-to-x systems. We feel they are a superior storage solution for plants with around 4,500 hours of annual full-load operations. Power from carbon-neutral sources is converted into synthetic natural gas (SNG) which can fuel any gas-powered engine. Cars, trucks and even ships can run on SNG. Storing SNG is easy, making your electricity reliable and flexible. As a modular concept, power-to-x is easily scalable and adjusts to your business requirements as needed.
