General Electric (GE) is to supply its Jenbacher gas engines and Clean Cycle waste-heat recovery modules for agricultural biogas projects across Europe.

The company will deliver the project, under a $50m, three year agreement, in cooperation with Italian group Gruppo.

Gruppo will combine the Clean Cycle modules with Jenbacher gas engines, which will generate about 999kW of electrical power and 402kW in thermal power for the agricultural co-generation project.

The solution is expected to contribute a 10% rise in electrical output and 10% reduction in the biomass required for biogas projects.

The electricity generated from the solution can be utilised for treatment plants and supplied to the public power grid.
