At the companys main site in Yalova (Turkey), this Genset will replace an existing installation, to provide the production plant with efficiently produced electrical power and process steam from year 2017 on.

Energy supply of the plant close to Istanbul, being one of the largest production sites for acrylic fibers worldwide, will hereby reach a new level. Beside auxiliaries like condenser or lube oil system, MAN also provides a comprehensive service package consisting of operator training modules, spare part supply as well as long-term support by MAN PrimeServ as service provider of the OEM.

The complex control of the steam supply to our acrylic fiber production is very important for highest quality of our products. MAN offered the best flexible solution for the process steam supply and best efficiency of generating electricity with a preferable maintenance contract.

Just like with the current order, system and installation concepts are developed closely together with the customer, to facilitate the highest availability possible.
