Guinness breweries in Nigeria to run on CHP

Global drinks company Diageo is to install turnkey combined heat and power (CHP) plants at two new Guinness breweries in Nigeria.

The two 3.3 MW plants will each feature one of GE’s natural gas powered Jenbacher J620 engines and a backup diesel engine.

The new Ogba and Benin City projects represent the fifth and sixth Jenbacher CHP engines that Diageo has installed since 2008 at its breweries in Nigeria.

Henry Ohenhen of à‚ Guinness Nigeria said: “GE’s Jenbacher gas engines are supporting our efforts to incorporate energy efficiency technologies to increase productivity. The performance of our previously installed Jenbacher gas engines, in terms of reliability, productivity and efficiency, has been tremendous.”

He added that “the proven capabilities of GE’s gas engines have helped us to develop the most modern and advanced breweries in Africa”.

Nigerians drinks more Guinness than the brand’s home country of Ireland, making the African nation the world’s second-largest market for Guinness, behind the UK.
