GE deal with Tata marks Jenbacher landmark in Pakistan

GE is to install its 1000th Jenbacher gas engine in Pakistan after signing a deal with Tata Energy.

GE will fit two of its 3.3 MW Jenbacher J620 cogeneration gas engines at textile mills run by Tata in Karachi.

As well as generating electricity, the units also will recover heat from the engine exhaust to produce steam for the mill’s production processes and also use heat from the engine’s jacket water to produce chilled water for cooling at the facility.

The units are expected to be operational by August and GE said that Jenbacher engines now supply around 873 MW to Pakistan’s textile industry.

Shahid Anwar Tata, director of Tata Energy, said: “When we set out to replace our existing gensets, we looked for a solution that could solve two main issues: improve our on-site power production efficiency and operate in a small footprint.”
