GE (NYSE: GE) announced China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC ) will install five of GE’s 3.34 MW Jenbacher cogeneration systems at a new data center that CNPC is building in the Beijing district of Changping.

The 16.7 MW combined cooling and heating power plant (CCHP) will offer a total efficiency of up to 85 percent to minimize the data center’s energy costs.

The data center will support CNPC’s Technology Innovation Base in the National Independent Innovation Park. The base is the center for petroleum engineering technology research and development, innovation and testing.

CNPC will use the output from the cogeneration plant and Beijing Gas Energy Investment Co. is the owner and operator.

GE will deliver the Jenbacher units by the end of April 2013. Commercial start-up is scheduled for the end of 2013.
