GE’s Jenbacher Gas Engines Power Algerian Factories

UK-based Clarke Energy, GE’s authorized distributor of Jenbacher gas engines in Algeria, will supply to Cevital Group for two on-site power plants with a combined output of 37.6 MW. The power plants will support the expansions of the group’s Brandt household electronic appliances factory in the city of Setif and its Laminoir factory in the city of Oran, Algeria.
The natural gas-fueled stations will utilize four of GE’s 4.4-MW, J624 Jenbacher gas engines and five 4-MW J624 units. The projects represent the largest gas engine order for GE’s Distributed Power business and Clarke Energy in North Africa, GE said.
The company added that GE’s Jenbacher J624 gas engines were selected for their durability and flexibility, which will be crucial since the Brandt factory is located at more than 1 000 meters above sea level. GE’s Jenbacher J624 units can maintain their efficient performance due to their twin-turbo charger technology, with no derating up to 40 °C.
The Jenbacher gas engines are scheduled to be commissioned in the summer of 2016.
