Rolls-Royce has inked a deal with IMG Development LLC to supply generating sets for at least five plants through 2020 and provide service for the systems.
Rolls-Royce will first supply six B35:40 gas gensets for two new power plants in Pennsylvania. The plants, operated by IMG Midstream LLC affiliates, will each receive three gensets that produce 7,010 kW of electricity. Upon completion, the plants will feed up to 40 MW of power into the local grid.
“Rolls-Royce has the right end-to-end power generation solution to help us rapidly deploy our distributed generation model in infrastructure constrained areas with the type of flexible power needed to address a dynamic energy market where traditional energy supply and consumption patterns are changing,” said Ron J. Kiecana, senior managing director and board member at IMG. “We are excited about this partnership and growing our distributed power generation model with Rolls-Royce in the U.S. market.”
The gensets are based on the medium-speed 16-cylinder B35:40 gas engine from Bergen Engines, part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems.
“We are delighted with the new long-term cooperation with IMG Development LLC and the trust IMG has placed in our products,” said Matthias Vogel, head of power generation beness at Rolls-Royce Power Systems.
