        • Applicable gas types include: natural gas, associated petroleum gas (flare gas), propane, biogas, sewage gas, landfill gas, coal mine gas, other special gases (e.g. coke, wood, and pyrolysis gases).

        A perfect fit for applications up to 1MW across various industries.

        Total flexibility

        Depending on customer needs, the Type 2 can use a variety of gas types to increase efficiency levels and reduce industrial emissions.

        Reliability for all scenarios

        The Jenbacher Type 2’s turbocharger bypass is able to compensate for extreme operating conditions.

        Complete efficiency

        Enhanced combustion provides maximum efficiency, no matter how it’s being used or what fuel is desired.

        Scope of supply:

        Combined Heat and Power Module (CHP Module) solutions allow customers to generate power and heat simultaneously at a very high total efficiencies, reaching 90% and even more.

        Usual scope of supply:

        • Engine and alternator installed on the frame
        • Control panel, gas train
        • Heat exchangers including exhaust gas heat exchanger

        CHP Modules can generate hot water or steam at various parameters and can be integrated with your existing heat infrastructure. You can select the option that fits your project’s needs among the various heat recovery schemes provided by Jenbacher.

        The scope of supply can be extended further with various balance of plant options (BOP) offered by Jenbacher, reach out to our specialists for help in selecting scope of supply and BOP options to fulfill your project’s needs.

        CHP Modules can be installed inside a building or inside a container. To see more details about Jenbacher’s Containerized solutions, click here.
