GE (NYSE: GE) is to supply its Jenbacher gas engines to power a series of advanced recycling and energy conversion (AREC) plants around the world.
GE has signed a deal with US company Green Waste Energy (GWE) to provide the engines for the plants, which will be built by GWE subsidiary Green Waste Energy Development (GWED).
Under the terms of the agreement, GE will provide GWED with Jenbacher J620 gas engines, which will use syngas produced at GWED’s waste-gasification facilities to generate renewable electricity.
Each installed gas engine will generate nearly 2 MW of on-site power. GE also will provide technical support for GWED’s installed engine fleet.
The plants to be built by GWED will be in the US, the UK, Africa and Asia.
The UK plant will be in Theddingworth, England, and will use up to six Jenbacher J620 gas engines and provide approximately 8 MW per hour to the grid.
