In the 60 Hz market, the units will be introduced from mid-2021.

Andreas Gàƒ¶rtz, vice president of power generation at Rolls-Royce Power Systems, said the new engines “are equipped for the future in terms of efficiency and environmental friendliness”.

ࢀœWith efficiencies of up to 42.6%, low life-cycle costs and high availability, plant operators benefit from low fuel consumption and thus high yieldsࢀ, he added.

The products will initially be offered for operation with natural gas, and for biogas from the end of 2021. The 500 series can also be converted to hydrogen operation at a later date.
