A GE Jenbacher genset is configured to produce electrical power only, characterized from high efficiency. Gensets are most commonly used where there is no local use for e heat and where there is no demand for a cogeneration configuration.
A GE Jenbacher gas engine cogeneration module is configured for the recovery of both electricity and heat via a cogeneration (CHP) configuration. Under this frame, the module is then typically located within a building with individual acoustic enclosures to reduce the escape of noise.
The GE Jenbacher container is a high quality unit which can be deployed for economical and speedy installation. When they leave the production facility the GE Jenbacher containers are fully tested and are excellent for ‘plug-and-play’ applications.
Island Mode Operation
Gas engines are well suited to acting in island mode operation as a captive power plant. Island mode operation refers to those power plants that operate in isolation from the national or local electricity distribution network. ‘Island mode’ sites have the benefit of avoiding the costs of installing external site connections.
