Saim delivered five MAN engines to CME (www.cmesrl.it). The generators equipped with Man engines were employed for the Skyway Monte Bianco, the brand new cable car in Courmayeur.
Two gens – 400 and 800 kW – were located at the cable car base at Pontal d’Entrèves, at 1.500 m above sea level, two 800 kW gens at Pavillon Mont Fréty, at 2400 m, a 500- kW gen at the top at Punta Helbronner at 3.466 m.
The Saim technical department accomplished a long feasibility study due to the height of the location.
Stradella’s Hospital is equipped with an gas fueled engine
driving a three-generation CHP unit
using natural gas which can provide energy
and heat for heating or refrigeration system.
The whole system, built by a leading Italian Company,
uses the power generated by a MAN E2876 E312 engine
which supplies 150 kW @ 1500 rpm.
The final performance of the system can recover up to 85%
of the supplied heat by the energy of the introduced gas .
MAN and SAIM are definitively environmentally friendly
