GE (NYSE: GE)’s Distributed Power business signed a milestone 20-year parts supply agreement with Nixon Energy Solutions (NES) to ensure long-term availability of 11 Jenbacher gas engines. The agreement marks GE’s first comprehensive material stream agreement with an authorized Jenbacher gas engine distributor in the U.S.
Under the agreement, GE will provide planned and unplanned parts to 11 of GE’s Ecomagination 2.17-MW J616 Jenbacher gas engines that NES is providing to MAS Georgia LFG, a renewable energy project. NES is GE’s authorized Jenbacher gas engines distributor to 13 states in the southeastern and mid-Atlantic U.S. The engines will produce a total of 24 MW of electricity at three landfill-to-gas projects in Georgia: Oak Grove Landfill, Pine Ridge Landfill and Richland Creek Landfill. All three plants are scheduled to be operational by second quarter of 2016. The fleet will be covered by GE’s regional remote monitoring and diagnostics center.
The projects work by capturing the methane landfill gas and using it to produce on-site power.
