Process-gas production Airbus Stade

For the aircraft company AIRBUS, S&L delivered and commissioned 6 gensets based on turbocharged, stoichiometric Waukesha VGF engines, type P48GSID (500 kWel, 850 kWth each) In two installation steps the CHP-units were installed in two different buildings at the Airbus premises in Stade. Besides heat and power the units are used to produce inertgas to substitute the nitrogen production or liquid nitrogen purchase. Using a comprehensive exhaust gas treatment with catalytic converters, the dehydrated and compressed inert exhaust gas is utilized in huge autoclaves wherein bigger carbon fibre parts were heated to bond. Exhaust emissions are reduced down to the detection limit by means of particularly large 3-way catalytic converters.
