General Electric selected by BMW

Automobile manufacturer BMW Group has once again turned to GE's Gas Engines distributed power technology by installing four Jenbacher J616 cogeneration modules at BMW's Regensburg factory in Bavaria, Germany. The cogeneration plant is generating 10.7 megawatts of reliable on-site power and meeting about 30 percent of the factory's energy needs. In addition to generating electricity, the cogeneration plant is capturing and utilizing 9.6 MW of engine waste heat to support the factory's production processes. For example, the plant will combine the engine waste heat with existing boilers to provide heating during the winter.
