Rolls-Royce Gets First Order From Poland
Rolls-Royce has received its first order from Poland for a gas engine-powered electrical generator.
Power provider Introl SA of Katowice ordered a single Bergen B35:40 16 cylinder gas engine which will be operated by OPEC Gdynia. The engine will be installed in a district heating system for the port city of Gdynia. Located in the town of Wejherowo-Nanice, just outside Gdynia, the plant is designed to provide 6.8 MW of electricity to the national grid and up to 6MW of heat to the district heating system.
The order represents the first sale of a Rolls-Royce gas engine into the expanding Polish market. The new plant will be serviced by engineers based at the Rolls-Royce Poland facility in Gdynia, ul.Kontenerowa 8.
Three other Polish power facilities, at Tarnów, Ostrów and Wladyslawowo, have a total of four generating sets supplied by U.K. packaging specialist Centrax that use the Rolls-Royce 501 gas turbine.
