INNIO’s Wuhan Waste-to-Energy Project Enters Phase II with Commissioning of Six Additional Jenbacher J320 Engines
• Jenbacher technology generates 14.9 MW of flexible, scalable, and resilient power from captured landfill gas – enough to power 35,000 homes in Wuhan
• Jenbacher distributor Shenfa continues technical services for installation
• Six additional Jenbacher J320 engines mark 14 engines at the power plant
Wuhan, China – March 23, 2023 – INNIO today announced that Wuhan Environmental Investment and Development Co., Ltd (WEID) has commissioned six additional of INNIO’s Jenbacher J320 engines for the Wuhan Jiangxia Changshankou Municipal Solid Waste landfill gas (LFG) project. INNIO’s distributor, Guangzhou Shenfa Electromechanical Industrial Development Co., Ltd. (Shenfa), provided the project’s generator set (gen-set) containers, landfill gas pre-treatment equipment, and NOx reduction equipment. Shenfa will also continue to provide technical services for the customer. The project is now operating with 14 Jenbacher J320 generator sets, delivering a total installed capacity of 14.9 megawatts. This supports the city of Wuhan with achieving its goal of becoming the most sustainable city in China.
In 2020, WEID turned to INNIO’s proven landfill gas power generation technology, selecting eight J320 gen-sets in their Wuhan City Changshankou LFG phase 1 project. The gen-sets were commissioned in April 2021. Convinced by the technological reliability of Jenbacher engines and Shenfa’s professional services, WEID purchased six additional J320 gen-sets in April 2022 for Phase II of the LFG project. The project provides enough electricity to power 35,000 homes in Wuhan. The six Jenbacher engines were commissioned in December 2022.
