GE Energy - Gas Engines, Generator Sets, CHP Modules and ORC Systems

GE Energy's Gas Engines division is a manufacturer of gas engines, generator sets, combined heat and power (CHP) modules, organic rankine cycle (ORC) systems and auxiliaries.

With a legacy of technological innovation across three product lines, including Jenbacher gas engines, Waukesha gas engines and heat recovery solutions technology, GE sets the industry standard for flexible fuel capability, low emissions and efficiency.

Gas engines for the oil, gas and agriculture industries

Engines can operate not only on natural gas, but on a broad range of alternative gases, such as biogas, landfill gas, coal mine gas, flare gas and sewage gas, featuring impressive fuel flexibility. Solutions include combined heat and power, gas compression and waste heat-to-electricity generation in industries including oil, gas and agriculture, and are deployed in over 80 countries.

With this ability to provide diverse power output, ranging from 0.12MW to 9.5MW, and eight products and solutions qualified through the GE ecomagination programme, GE's Gas Engines business offers specialised local power solutions to deliver cleaner, more efficient, affordable energy around the world.

Gas engines for natural and man-made / waste gases

GE's Jenbacher gas engines range in power from 0.25MW to 4.4MW and run on either natural gas or a variety of other gases, such as biogas, landfill gas, coal mine gas, sewage gas and combustible industrial waste gases.

A broad range of commercial, industrial and municipal customers use Jenbacher products for on-site generation of power, heat and cooling. Patented combustion systems, engine controls and monitoring enable its power generation plants to meet stringent emission standards, while offering high levels of efficiency, durability and reliability.
