Rolls-Royce has received its first order from Poland for a gas engine-powered electrical generator. Power provider Introl SA of Katowice has placed an order for a single Bergen B35:40 16 cylinder gas engine, which will be operated by OPEC Gdynia. The engine will be installed in a district heating system for the port city of Gdynia. Located in the town of Wejherowo-Nanice, just outside Gdynia, the plant is designed to provide 6.8 MW of electricity to the national grid and up to 6 MW of heat to the district heating system.

The new plant will be serviced by engineers based at the newly-opened Rolls-Royce Poland facility in Gdynia, ul.Kontenerowa 8.

The order represents the first sale of a Rolls-Royce gas engine into the expanding Polish market, although three other Polish power facilities, at Tarnów, Ostrów and Wladyslawowo, have a total of four generating sets supplied by UK packaging specialist Centrax that utilise the Rolls-Royce 501 gas turbine.
