Project Overview

Drac were engaged to replace an existing Cummins 2MW gas generator with a Caterpillar 2MW generator in an existing peak loading cogeneration plant. This project involved the complete design, fabrication and installation of all required components including the gas system, cooling water system, exhaust system and heat recovery systems. Drac manufactured and installed all components in house. This cogeneration plant has been operating continuously since installation was completed in June 2020

A Word From Drac

Retrofitting a new generator into and existing enclosure installation is inherently challenging. We applied an innovative design approach which resulted in minimal interruption to site and a seamless integration with existing field equipment. The project was completed in a very short period of time in order to have the plant active by the summer of 2020/21. Michael Hodge, Lead Mechanical Engineer
