Reliable - Base Load Power Plants

"Containerised" Heat & Power in the Netherlands

An engine power plant running on gas was installed in 2014 in a housing complex close to Rotterdam in the Netherlands in order to meet in the mostcost-efficient way the energy demand of this area. This containerised cogeneration unit provides reliable steady power (500kW) and heat (400kW) to the people living there. Thanks to this engine power plant, energy costs have been reduced dramatically and electricity surplus is fed into the public power network which means additional earnings.

Steady Power for the French Island of Martinique

The electric utility 'Électricité de France' invested recently in a base load engine power plant located in Bellefontaine on the island of Martinique. It is composed of twelve highly efficient engines generating 220 MW for the grid and meeting around 60% of the power needs of this Caribbean island. Since the power plant can cover its requirements using desalinated seawater instead of ground water, water resources are spared. The heat from the engines is used to generate the hot water required at the site. To sum up, this new power plant offers flawless reliability and high resource.
