GE’s Jenbacher Gas Engines
Jenbacher* gas engines from GE have a power range of 220 kW to 10,38 MW and can run on natural gas or a number of other gases.
They provide onsite power, heat and cooling to a variety of commercial, industrial and municipal applications – particularly renewable and waste-to-energy, industrial power generation and cogeneration/CHP (combined heat and power), and oilfield power generation. More than 15,500 Jenbacher gas engines are operating in 100-plus countries.
GE offers the following Jenbacher engines: Type 2, Type 3, Type 4, Type 6, 624 and the new 920 FleXtra.
As of 2017, nearly 180 Jenbacher gas engines had been delivered to Thailand. While most of these engines are being used in biogas operations, they also are employed in landfill and natural gas applications across the country.
As the channel partner for GE’s Jenbacher gas engines in Thailand, Souer provides a fully trained service and customer support team, spare parts sales, engineering, a sales team, and a fully stocked parts warehouse.
A regional training facility, to be based at the Souer training facilities in Phitsanulok, will provide training support to both service and operational personnel.
GE’s Jenbacher core portfolio
Introduced in 1976 and continuously improved, the Jenbacher Type 2 engine offers extremely high efficiency in the 249-330 kW power range. Its robust design and stationary engine concept result in excellent component durability and a service life of up to 80,000 operating hours before the first major overhaul. Enhanced components and a proven control and monitoring concept give this engine outstanding reliability.
Long service intervals, maintenance-friendly engine design and low fuel consumption help ensure the Type 3’s high efficiency. Enhanced components prolong service life even when using non-pipeline gases such as landfill gas or biogas. The new Type 3D generation offers an outstanding service interval with up to 80,000 operating hours until a major overhaul. With its technical maturity and high reliability, this engine type stands out in its 526-1,067 kWe power range.
Based on the proven design concepts of the Type 3 and 6 engines, the modern Type 4 engine in the 845-1,500 kWe power range is characterized by high power density and outstanding efficiency. Enhanced control and monitoring provides easy preventative maintenance, high reliability and availability.
Continuously refined based on GE’s extensive experience, the Type 6 engines are reliable, advanced products serving the 1,795-4,498 kW power range. The 1,500 rpm engine speed provides high power density and low installation costs. The Type 6 pre-combustion chamber enables high efficiency with low emissions. Proven design and enhanced components support a service life of 60,000 operating hours before the first major overhaul.
Souer stocks a large number of commonly required genuine Jenbacher spare parts, available for immediate shipment from the Souer warehouse in Thailand. For non-stock items, immediate shipment from the Jenbacher factory in Austria can be arranged.
