• GE’s Fuel-Flexible Technology Converts Readily Available Syngas into Energy for Singapore HoT:
• Hyatt Applies Innovative, Inexpensive Ways to Use Natural Resources Already Available.

GE’s fuel-flexible Jenbacher gas engine uses gas from the town’s gas pipeline to create electricity for the Grand Hyatt. The project is the first of its kind in the world and part of GE’s broader strategy to invest in resource-rich regions and to respond more quickly to customer needs. The project also helps support Singapore’s environmental and energy efficiency goals to meet growing needs from population increases.

“Our management is very committed to efficient energy, and therefore looked for an innovative, inexpensive way to use resources we already had available to us, such as the syngas pipeline that crosses our property,” said Ivan Leong, Director of Engineering Grand Hyatt Singapore. “We were impressed with GE’s ability to take on the challenge of creating technology that helps us to meet increasing energy consumption needs and addresses pressing environmental challenges at the same time.”

In this one-of-a-kind project, GE provided a Jenbacher JMS 320 gas engine for the combined heat, cooling and power plant at the Grand Hyatt. GE designed the engine to use the syngas on site, which has a high content of hydrogen, but at the same time low methane content. The syngas, which is unique to this region, is considered to be a waste gas from the nearby crude oil refinery. It is replacing fossil energy resources, like oil and electrical power, which reduces the impact on the environment.

This project is further evidence of how the Grand Hyatt Singapore, which has long been recognized as a leader in sustainable business practices, has combined innovation and technology to create projects that reduce environmental impact.

“This was a unique project which required us to develop an innovative solution to meet our customer’s needs. The result is an engine that expands the uses of syngas into power generation, which is a technology that could be used by similar businesses,” said Prady Iyyanki, CEO—gas engines for GE Power & Water. “This is another example of how GE’s fuel-flexible Jenbacher technology provides customers with a solution to recycle more of their own waste gases to reduce their energy costs while improving the environment and local energy reliability, and is further evidence of GE’s commitment to build innovative solutions to today’s environmental challenges while driving economic growth.”

The syngas used in the project requires careful treatment, and the highest safety standards need to be met. To meet these standards, a comprehensive nitrogen flushing system as well as a comprehensive safety system for the gas valve train had to be installed.

GE’s Jenbacher J320 gas engine provides power output of 587 kilowatts with NOx emissions of below 500 mg/Nm3. It was sold to the Tri-Gen Specialist Solution Integrator for the Grant Hyatt—CNA Group Ltd. through Navigat Energy, an authorized distributor in Indonesia for GE’s Jenbacher gas engines. Navigat delivers reliable energy to its customers on a turnkey basis by offering small- and medium-sized power plants outfitted with GE’s Jenbacher gas engines, all of which have the capability to operate with diverse gases—from natural gas to alternative gases, including biogas and landfill gas—and are available in a wide range of power outputs.

The Grand Hyatt Singapore opening continues a series of recent actions in GE’s energy business over the past several months aimed at growing its overall presence in the conversion of gases and in the energy space in general.

Earlier this month, GE announced that the first coal-bed-methane-to-energy project in Russia celebrated its grand opening at Kuzbasskaya Energosetevaya Compania’s Talda site, located near Kemerovo. A Jenbacher gas engine from GE uses the gas to provide electricity, which is ultimately sold to the grid.

On November 5, 2010, GE announced that it signed a memorandum of understanding with Indonesia’s leading coal bed methane company, Ephindo, to develop a pilot power generation plant that will tap into the country’s vast reserves of coal methane gas to produce electricity using cleaner burning power generation technology. The project will use GE’s Jenbacher gas engine technology.
