GE Jenbacher natural gas engine Brazil quadgeneration power plant

GE (NYSE: GE) will install three Jenbacher natural gas engines to power a 12 MW quadgeneration power plant in Brazil.

Brazilian energy company Light Esco will install three ecomagination-qualified Jenbacher J624 engines at the Andina Brasil-Coca-Cola bottling factory outside of Rio de Janeiro. GE will also provide maintenance services, emergency spare parts and a resident technician. The engines were delivered in January 2013, and the power plant is expected to begin operations in November.

The quadgeneration plant will supply electricity and heat, but will also produce cold water, carbon dioxide and nitrogen to support bottling operations.

GE installed the technology at Coca-Cola bottling facilities in Romania and other European countries.
