Zusammenfassung

Modern gas engines for power generation are a key part of today’s world-wide decentralized energy supply and they are expected to play an even more significant role in future. GE’s engine versions operate at high power densities, high efficiencies and low emission levels – and always with a high degree of availability.

GE’s Jenbacher Type 6 gas engines cover the 1.5 to 4.5 MW power range and are efficient, flexible and reliable with high power density. Since 1989 more than 4200 gensets have been delivered to customers all over the world. More than 40 different versions are available to provide an optimal solution for every application.

To further strengthen the Type 6 platform position, GE’s Jenbacher gas engine product line has been continuously working on product improvements. The recent development efforts result in the introduction of a new engine generation, both for single-stage turbocharging and two-stage turbocharging variants. Improving various engine components like cylinder head, valve train, cam shaft, power unit and combustion chamber enables noticeable improvements in performance, reliability and product flexibility. A dedicated version management results in tailor-made engine versions for various market segments. As an example, the new version J624 K09 provides an electrical efficiency of 47.0 % at 24.5 bar BMEP. In summary, a very comprehensive Type 6 gas engine product portfolio can be offered for various applications around the world.
