GE gas generators get big orders to make coal power generation more environmentally friendly
According to reports, when the expansion of the second phase of 40 MW in 2016 is completed, the total capacity of the entire gas-fired power plant will reach 58 megawatts, and the generated electricity will be delivered to the local grid. The power station uses the rich methane gas generated by the coal mines through the Jenbacher generator set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.
“In order to meet the specific technology and service demands of the customer's power station construction, we selected the GE Jenbacher J620 gas generator set for the Jinzhuang Group Chengzhuang project.” Mr. Yan Renhui, general manager of Jerry Distribution Energy, said, “GE's rich technical expertise Knowledge and a well-established supply chain can help us deliver equipment to our customers quickly. This project will increase the energy efficiency of existing power plants and further reduce methane emissions from Chengzhuang Coal Mine.” Jerry Distribution Energy is GE Engineering, Procurement and Construction ( EPC) project partner.
Compared with coal and diesel, natural gas is expected to play an increasingly important role in China's energy supply. However, CBM/gas power generation still has a large growth and proportion in the next five years, especially for Shanxi Province. This is especially true for provinces with more than 30% of the country's CBM reserves and 40% of production. The project will support the government's goal of CBM mining and utilization to reduce methane emissions.
“We are very pleased to support the coal-bed methane/gas power generation expansion project of Shanxi Jinmei Group through our largest gas generator set order in China,” said Yin Ming, general manager of GE Distributed Energy Business China. “Our The Jenbacher generator set has high electrical efficiency and long-lasting reliability and reliability in the industry to support China's continued commitment to reduce environmental pollution caused by coal production."
GE will provide commissioning services for generator sets and related equipment for the project. In addition to gas generator sets, Jerry will provide a range of equipment and services including radiators, mufflers, control panels, waste heat boilers, auxiliary equipment, and installation. These units are scheduled to be delivered to the site in December and will be put into commercial operation in March next year.
