Rolls-Royce Nets New Orders
Rolls-Royce has received more than US$35.3 million (£22 million) in new orders for its Bergen reciprocating engines to provide electricity and heat for industrial uses in Russia, Spain and Holland.
Eight Bergen gas engines and five diesel engines will collectively produce more than 80 MW of energy for a diamond mine in Russia; a major wood products plant, food production factories and a paper mill in Spain; and greenhouses in Holland. In Russia, five B32:40V12 liquid fuel diesel engines, each producing 5.2 MW, will provide power for pumping, refining and ancillary services at the Lukoil diamond mine in the Arkhangelsk region for NG Energo, a power supply company.
Spanish businesses ordering engines include the Ghesa Papertech paper mill in Tudela, Navarra (one BV20 rated at 8.5 MW); wood products specialist Unemsa Tojeiro of Coristanco (one BV16 rated at 7.3 MW); IESA Intermalta Energía, S.A. for a malt production factory in San Adrian, Navarra (one BV16 rated at 6.7 MW); the OTSI Garcia Carrion fruit-juice manufacturer in Daimiel, Ciudad Real (one BV20 rated at 8.3 MW); and food producer Sampol Campofrio in Burgos (three BV12 engines totalling 15 MW).
A single Bergen BV:35:40V16 engine will provide Agro Care with 7.5 MW of power for their Middenmeer site in Holland, where it will join two other Bergen B35:40V20 gas engines installed in 2007. Their power provides the greenhouses with heat and light to grow tomatoes year-round.
