GE is also providing gas engines to Belgian tomato greenhouses. Three Jenbacher machines plus balance of plant are being installed for Den Berk Délice. And under a multiyear service agreement, the gas engines are being connected to GE’s myPlant Asset Performance Management (APM) platform.

The engines are of the J624 type, each with an installed capacity of 4.5 MW, connected to the myPlant APM platform. One of the units was shipped to Den Berk in Merksplas in November 2017, one will be installed at Den Horst in Merksplas in August, and one will be installed at Luc Beirinckx BVBA in Herentals in September. GE already had an installed base of 27 MW at Den Berk greenhouses.

The 1500 rpm engines provide heat and power to the greenhouse complexes and carbon dioxide to promote growth.

GE says Den Berk’s Jenbacher gas engine fleet — and about 1250 other Jenbacher gas engines installed in greenhouse applications around the globe — are monitored 24/7 at GE’s Greenhouse Center of Excellence in the Netherlands, and many of them are also using myPlant APM.
