• GE’s Jenbacher Engines Driving New Agricultural Biogas Plant in Konopnica;
• Bioenergy Project Highlights Poland’s Efforts to Support Renewable Energy;
• Local Farmers to Supply Agricultural Products for Biogas Facility, Boosting Local Economy;
• Project Reflects Global Expansion of Distributed Power to Enhance Regional Energy Security.

Showcasing Poland’s commitment to develop more renewable energy projects to reduce its dependence on coal, local officials yesterday celebrated the start-up of a new 1.99-megawatt agricultural biogas power plant north of the city of Rawa Mazowiecka in central Poland, 80 kilometers southeast of Warsaw. Two GE (NYSE: GE) ecomagination™-qualified Jenbacher gas engines power the plant.

The two Jenbacher J320 units generate reliable electrical and thermal power, with an electrical efficiency of 40.8 percent and total efficiency of 86.6 percent. In the near future, the installation will be connected to the local district heating network for businesses and residents in Rawa Mazowiecka. CHP technologies are inherently more energy efficient than separate electrical and thermal power systems.

The plant, which is located in the village of Konopnica, utilizes an innovative “dry fermentation” biogas production technology provided by F&M GmbH. This system converts local agricultural products into a renewable biogas that is used as fuel in GE’s Jenbacher biogas modules.

Poland is supporting the development of new biogas power projects as a key part of its “Energy Policy 2030” strategy to diversify its energy supplies.

“Our new agricultural biogas power plant project will stimulate our local economy as farmers in the area are given the opportunity to supply the agricultural products needed as raw feedstock for the biogas plant,” said Zofia Ossowska, general director of Bioenergy Project sp. z o.o. “Our project reflects the Polish government’s commitment to encourage investments in biogas plants.”

“The Bioenergy Project agricultural biogas plant in Konopnica demonstrates how our Jenbacher cogeneration technology is ideally suited to help Poland and other European countries to develop a cleaner, low-emission, distributed energy generation infrastructure to achieve greater energy efficiency and security while also reducing the environmental impacts of energy production,” said Michal Oprzadek, regional sales leader, Central & Eastern Europe, Russia and CIS—Gas Engines for GE Power & Water. “Our Jenbacher gas engines offer the fuel flexibility needed to accommodate natural gas or alternative fuels such as biogas while offering the industry’s highest levels of reliability and availability.”

The Bioenergy Project also serves as another example of cross-business cooperation between GE Power & Water and GE corporate’s Sales and Project Finance team, which assisted the customer in arranging for financing solutions.

“Our ability to integrate crucial product, engineering and marketing resources from across GE’s business portfolio allows us to provide our customers with tailored, one-stop solutions,” Oprzadek said.

KWE, an authorized distributor and service provider of GE’s Jenbacher gas engines, supplied the two containerized CHP ECOMAX™ units to the Konopnica site and will provide service and support via a complete service agreement. KWE is a subsidiary of Gruppo AB, a major supplier of modular CHP solution in Europe. In 2011, GE and Gruppo AB announced a three-year agreement to collaborate on agricultural CHP projects throughout Europe.

GE's Jenbacher J320 biogas engines are part of GE’s ecomagination portfolio. To qualify for the ecomagination portfolio, products and services must demonstrate both improved economic value and environmental performance. Ecomagination is GE's commitment to innovative solutions that maximize resources and efficiencies and make the world work better.

GE’s distributed power portfolio includes GE aeroderivative gas turbines, Jenbacher and Waukesha gas engines and waste heat recovery solutions.

The Bioenergy Project start-up comes two days after a GE-sponsored event celebrating 20 years of GE’s presence in Poland. The event, which took place in Warsaw, was attended by GE executives and Polish dignitaries as well as Lee Feinstein, U.S. ambassador to Poland.
