ExxonMobil and INNIO support energy supply to medbo District Hospital in Regensburg
Hamburg/Jenbach, October 6, 2020
In recognition of the tireless work of staff at the medbo District Hospital in Regensburg, Germany, during the coronavirus pandemic, energy companies ExxonMobil and INNIO Jenbacher are providing support for the upcoming service of the hospital’s energy supply center. As an act of solidarity, the two companies are supplying a total of 315 US gallons (1,200 liters) of Jenbacher N Oil 40 engine oil and performing the oil change for the advanced combined heat and power (CHP) plant – all at no charge. Two INNIO Jenbacher gas engines provide the hospital with power, heat, and refrigeration and are lubricated with high-grade ExxonMobil engine oil.
By undertaking this initiative, ExxonMobil and INNIO are helping ensure that the Regensburg healthcare facility has a reliable and flexible energy supply while at the same time recognizing the amazing dedication of hospital staff. The oil change will be carried out by the INNIO services team during the next planned maintenance and will mean that the hospital is best prepared for the forthcoming heating season.
“We are delighted to play a small part in enabling regional healthcare facilities to continue fulfilling their vital role,” explained Frank Heber from ExxonMobil. “We have utmost respect for the hard work and dedication of all those involved in the medical and healthcare sectors,” stated Heber. “We wanted to show our solidarity not just through words, but also by giving practical support.”
At the heart of the economical and environmentally responsible CHP plant are two Jenbacher J312 natural gas engines which can together generate more than 1 MW of power. That is equivalent to the electricity demand of around 2,000 Regensburg homes. “Hospitals need a great deal of energy to ensure a secure power supply as well as to provide for patient comfort. In addition, our energy consumption is increasing year on year as more technology comes into use,” explained Robert Lorenz, Workshop Manager for Medical Facilities in the Upper Palatinate District (medbo KU). “The INNIO Jenbacher engines allow us to cover a large proportion of our power, heat and refrigeration requirement in a reliable way without depending on the electricity grid,” added Lorenz.
“We would like to thank everyone working in the medical service at the medbo District Hospital in Regensburg and the free oil change is our way of helping ensure the smooth operation of the facilities,” explained Joachim Maier, Director of INNIO Jenbacher GmbH in Germany. “This not only makes an important contribution toward securing the power supply to critical infrastructure in Regensburg, but it also paves the way toward a climate-neutral future for energy in Germany. This is because CHP plants, such as the one in Regensburg, need much less fuel and produce much lower emissions than conventional systems with separate power and heat generation.”
