GE GAS ENGINES TO POWER PHOENIX ENERGY'S CALIFORNIA BIOENERGY PROJECTS
Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Source: GE

SAN FRANCISCO - GE's Distributed Power business, Western Energy Systems and San Francisco, California-based Phoenix Energy today announced they have signed an agreement for GE to supply an undetermined number of ecomagination qualified Jenbacher gas engines to power a series of bioenergy plants that Phoenix Energy plans to build around the Golden State.

Phoenix Energy uses an advanced downdraft gasification technology to thermochemically convert biomass residues into a hydrogen-rich fuel used to generate electricity, heat and biochar. The Phoenix Energy technology can transform a wide range of woody wastes into "syngas," which then can be used in gas engines to generate cleaner electricity and heat for local users, utilities, agricultural processors, waste handlers and other industries. Biomass fuel is procured locally to enable any operation in need of low carbon and cleaner energy to become its own power provider.

Under terms of the agreement, GE's Distributed Power business and Western Energy Systems will provide Phoenix Energy with GE's Jenbacher J612 gas engines, which will use the syngas produced at Phoenix Energy's biomass gasification facilities to generate renewable electricity. Each installed gas engine will generate about 1 megawatt (MW) of reliable on-site power. GE and Western Energy Systems also will provide technical support for Phoenix Energy's installed engine fleet. Phoenix Energy has committed to use GE's Jenbacher gas engines statewide, including for its Lake Tahoe and other projects in Central and Northern California.

Western Energy's agreement with Phoenix Energy reflects the growing global demand for GE's specialty gas engine technology and other distributed power solutions to help meet the world's pressing local energy security, energy efficiency and environmental policy priorities.-energy-systems
