China home to ‘world’s first’ BFG-fuelled industrial CHP plant

Jiangsu Yonggang Group, a large-scale integrated iron and steel maker in China, is to install four of GE’s (NYSE: GE) Jenbacher cogeneration units, fueled by blast furnace gas (BFG), at its sprawling steel-making facility.

The project is described as the world’s first commercial application of gas engine-based cogeneration, using BFG to generate heat and power for a steel mill.

The 7.88-MW cogeneration plant, which will be powered by four 1.97-MW J620 Jenbacher units, will reportedly have a total efficiency topping 83%.

It is also claimed that the plant will cut the mill’s annual carbon emissions by 57,000 tonnes.

GE confirms the Jenbacher units are scheduled to be delivered by September, with commercial start-up of the plant slated for the end of the year.
