A Grand Way To Be Energy Efficient

Posted on February 22, 2011

The Grand Hyatt Singapore is using a GE Jenbacher gas engine to turn synthetic gas into electricity as part of an energy-saving initiative. GE provided a Jenbacher JMS 320 gas engine for the combined heat, cooling and power plant at the Grand Hyatt.

GE designed the engine to use the synthetic gas on site, which has a high content of hydrogen and a low content of methane, GE said. Synthetic gas is considered to be a waste gas from a nearby crude oil refinery. It is replacing fossil energy resources, like oil and electrical power, which reduces the impact on the environment, GE said.

The synthetic gas used in the project requires careful treatment, GE said. To meet proper standards, a nitrogen flushing system, as well as a safety system for the gas valve train, had to be installed. GE’s Jenbacher J320 gas engine provides power output of 587 kW with NOx emissions of below 500 mg/Nm³.
