GE Supplying Large Jenbacher Order For Russian Market
By Jack Burke11 April 2018
GE has signed a supply agreement with GreenTech Energy Company (GTE), one of GE’s authorized channel partners for Jenbacher gas engines in Russia, for 21 Jenbacher gas engines.
The order includes 10 J320 units, 10 J420 units and one J316 unit with a total capacity of 26 MW to be delivered by year-end 2018. To date, it is one of the largest GE contracts to supply Jenbacher engines for the Russian market. The contract was signed during the customer technical seminar organized together with GTE on April 10 and 11 in Yekaterinburg, Russia’s Ural.
Packages branded “GreenTechPower” will be manufactured by GTE at a new facility in St. Petersburg. Combined heat and power (CHP) units with single capacity going from 1 MW to 1.5 MW on the base of GE’s Jenbacher gas engines will be used to help increase cleaner power generation at or near the point of use in the food and beverage, glass, agriculture and chemical processes industries.
CHP provides thermal power and electrical generation in a single system. Efficiencies with GE’s Jenbacher CHP solutions can reach 90% or more with CHP. That’s more than 40% higher than with thermal energy alone, GE said. These systems help commercial and industrial businesses, municipalities and a wide range of energy-intensive institutions get the most out of their facilities. GTE’s CHP packages based on GE’s Jenbacher gas engines are space efficient and do not require the construction of a separate building, which is accelerating the plant’s commissioning, GE said.
