Bergen Engines has supplied two Bergen Engines’ B36:45L 3.3 MW medium speed (720 rpm) units to power plants belonging to the pharmaceutical industry in Puerto Rico.
A company spokesman commented:
“Bergen Engines will supply two medium-speed units for power plants in Puerto Rico. Sampol Group, a multinational applied engineering company, has signed a power purchase agreement for two new efficient energy power plants for the pharmaceutical industry in Puerto Rico.
“Each site will use two Bergen Engines’ B36:45L 3.3 MW medium speed (720 rpm) units. The plants are hybrid-renewable microgrid solutions which will integrate solar photovoltaic technology, batteries, and baseload cogeneration for maximum use of renewable and cleaner energy."
The B36:45 gas engine is a medium-speed lean-burn unit designed to produce up to 12 MW of mechanical power with optimised combustion technology and excellent load responsiveness. The design has been driven by stringent requirements for lower exhaust emissions, highest possible electrical and heat recovery efficiency, coupled with extreme reliability, reports Bergen.
