An agreement with UK-based Clarke Energy will see the company serve as GE’s first authorized distributor for diesel sales and services with responsibility for stationary power generation in Australia, Nigeria and India.

GE’s Distributed Power business introduced its new 2.6 MW 616 diesel engine last year and also integrated its 228 and 250 diesel engine product lines for stationary power generation into its portfolio. In 2014, GE announced Clarke Energy would supply five of GE’s new 616 diesel engines to Flour Mills of Nigeria plc, representing the first sale globally of the 616 in this application.

‘Our new agreement with Clarke Energy will strengthen our ability to meet the growing demand for distributed power in Australia, Nigeria and India, particularly in various industrial sectors,’ said Darryl Wilson, vice president and chief commercial officer for GE’s Distributed Power business.

Clarke already acts as an authorized distributor for Jenbacher gas engines sales and services in key regions including Australia, Nigeria and India.
