PITTSBURGH, PA, USA / BERGEN, NORWAY – At the end of 2015, the power generation provider IMG Development LLC and Rolls-Royce signed a long-term strategic agreement for the supply of Rolls-Royce medium-speed gensets for a minimum of five plants extending into 2020. The first part of the agreement involves the delivery of six B35:40 gas generating sets designed for two new power plants in Pennsylvania, USA, that will be operated by affiliates of IMG Midstream LLC. The two companies also signed a long-term service agreement for the systems being supplied to the two plants. The power plants will feed up to 40 MW of electric power into the local grid. Bergen Engines is part of Rolls-Royce Power Systems.
Three gensets, each of which will produce 7,010 kW of electric power, are to be installed in each power plant. The gensets are based on the medium-speed 16-cylinder B35:40 gas engine from Bergen Engines.
Ron J. Kiecana, Senior Managing Director and Board Member at IMG said: “Rolls Royce has the right end-to-end power generation solution to help us rapidly deploy our distributed generation model in infrastructure constrained areas with the type of flexible power needed to address a dynamic energy market where traditional energy supply and consumption patterns are changing. We are excited about this partnership and growing our distributed power generation model with Rolls Royce in the U.S. market.”
