In addition to delivering efficiency as high as 43.3% when operating on pipeline gas, the Type 3F engine is optimized for reduced total hydrocarbon (THC) emissions, future-proofed fuel flexibility, and enhanced serviceability. Moreover, the latest 3F technology is offered with a “Ready for H2”** option and retrofittable for most of the installed Type 3 fleet.

INNIO’s innovative engine technology is engineered to help drive industries and communities to net zero power generation. INNIO’s hydrogen-ready Jenbacher 3F technology is the latest energy solution committed to a climate-neutral, greener and more secure energy future.

Dr. Olaf Berlien, president and CEO of INNIO

We have been working with the Jenbacher Type 3 engines for over twenty years. Given our positive experience with the upgrade of the first engine to the new Jenbacher 3F generation model in 2020, it was an easy decision for us to implement this current upgrade. Thanks to the improved fuel usage of the Jenbacher 3F generation engine, we have been able to both increase our profitability and to reduce our environmental footprint.

Building on the Jenbacher Type 3 more than 35 years of experience, more than 11,000 engines worldwide, and more than 130,000 operating hours, the new generation of the Jenbacher Type 3 brings numerous advantages to customers such as:

  • Future-proof fuel flexibility with a “Ready for Hydrogen” option that facilitates a transition from traditional fuels today to H2 operation in the future, once H2 becomes readily available
  • Greater efficiency of up to two percentage points improved fuel usage
  • Lower THC emissions and greater efficiency lead to a smaller environmental footprint
  • Reduced oil cost that reduces consumption while providing longer lube oil lifetime and lower engine oil life-cycle costs
  • Convenient upgrade for currently installed engines, ideally applied during minor/major overhaul

The Jenbacher Type 3F is available for applications in 50 Hz countries and will be available in 60 Hz countries in 2024.
