• GE Supplying 10 of Its J624 Jenbacher Gas Engines for the Kuvaninga Energia Project;
• 40-MW on-Site Power Plant to Provide More Reliable Electricity to Grid in Southern Mozambique;
• Clarke Energy Contract Marks First Jenbacher Gas Engine Order in Mozambique.

GE Power & Water’s Distributed Power business today announced that Clarke Energy, GE’s Jenbacher gas engine distributor for Mozambique since 2013, has secured its first Jenbacher gas engine order in the country with energy company Kuvaninga Energia. Clarke Energy is supplying 10 of GE’s J624 natural gas engines for a 40-megawatt (MW) independent power production facility near the town of Chokwé, in the southern Mozambique province of Gaza. The engines are scheduled for delivery in Q3 2014.

Clarke Energy also will provide preventive maintenance services to maintain the facility’s optimal availability.

Mozambique has an electricity grid with two separate, regional networks. The Kuvaninga Energia on-site power plant’s Jenbacher units will generate needed electricity for Mozambique’s southern grid. The power plant will be operated by ADC Projects.

Mozambique is ideally positioned to utilize natural gas for power generation because the country has the second largest gas reserves in Africa. The gas fields are being developed at an increasing rate by various multinational oil and gas companies.

Kuvaninga Energia represents one of the first major gas-fueled power projects in Mozambique. The project will utilize domestically-produced gas from Mozambique to help generate more reliable electricity supplies for the southern grid and help encourage economic growth.

“The Kuvaninga Energia project with Clarke Energy illustrates the growing demand for distributed power technologies that support the local energy security, economic development and healthcare needs of developing countries in Africa and throughout the world,” said Lorraine Bolsinger, president and CEO of GE’s Distributed Power business.

“We at Clarke Energy are excited to be playing a key role in the development of this pioneering gas engine power plant for both our company and GE in Mozambique. Backed up by our regional service team, this facility will provide stable supplies of power in southern Mozambique for many years to come,” said Paul de Mattos, managing director of Clarke Energy in South Africa.

Clarke Energy is now the authorized distributor and service provider for GE’s Jenbacher gas engines in Mozambique, South Africa and Botswana.

GE launched its Distributed Power business in Nigeria on June 10, 2014, in Lagos. The business is focused on power generation at or near the point of use, including a potential $1.4 billion investment in technology to develop new and improved products for customers.

GE Power & Water’s Distributed Power business is a leading provider of power equipment, engines and services, focused on power generation at or near the point of use.
