High-efficiency Austrian INNIO Jenbacher gas engine powering new pasta factory in Cameroon

Clarke Energy, the successful distribution partner of INNIO Jenbacher has installed a natural gas-fuelled J320 engine which is now delivering a resilient on-site power supply


The combined heat and power (CHP) project will be executed in two phases. The first phase was installation and commissioning of the containerised module, producing a nominal electrical power output of 1067kW. The second phase will be to install an exhaust gas heat exchanger to recover the waste heat from hot exhaust gases to generate superheated water at 130°C, which will then be injected into the customer’s process steamer for purification.

The quality of service provided by Clarke Energy has significantly reduced the factory’s downtime. Highest engine running hours generate substantial cost saving benefits to customers in Douala thereby scaling down the operational costs.
