Jenbacher Energiesysteme Ltd. will announce at POWER-GEN International ´97 the introduction of the new gas engine J 620.
With a mechanical output of 2,800 kW it is the first high-speed gas engine in this power range with 1,500 rpm worldwide, according to company officials. Due to its high power density it was possible to increase efficiency up to 43.2 percent. The new J 620 GS gas engine represents a combination between evolutionary development and a marked increase of performance and efficiency with reduced service requirements. It offers benefits considering that a packaged power unit fits in a 40 ft. container with a three-meter width.
The componets used are lighter and reduced in number, as nearly all tubes and pipes are integrated in the new engine block. This results in a simplification of service and maintenance and makes the new Jenbacher product an extremely economical package.
Jenbacher Energiesysteme manufacturs gas engines for various applications, like power generation, cogeneration, chiller and direct drives.
