 GE Receives Largest Single Jenbacher Order in China

General Electric says it has received its largest single order of Jenbacher gas engines in China.

GE will supply 12 Ecomagination qualified 3.35-MW J620 gas engines to the Shanxi Jincheng Coal Group for an expansion of a coal mine methane (CMM) gas-fueled power plant at the Chengzhuang coal mine in Jincheng City, Shanxi Province.

Phase 1 of the power plant features nine older gas engines from another supplier.

The 40-MW expansion is slated for completion in 2016 and will bring the plant’s total capacity to 58 MW of on-site power to be sold to the local grid.

Capturing the mine’s methane-rich gas and producing power on-site with the Jenbacher engines sends fewer greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and supports the country’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.

GE is providing commissioning services for the generator sets and related equipment.  The Jereh Combined Energy Corporation will provide equipment, including radiators, silencers, control panels, exhaust boilers, associated equipment as well as installation and other services.

Delivery is expected in December 2015 while commercial operation is expected to begin in March 2016.
