Rolls-Royce has signed a contract with Tuinbouwbedrijf Marc Pittoors
(T.B.M.P) BVBA, for the supply of a 7 MWe combined heat and power plant (CHP).
BERGEN, NORWAY – Rolls-Royce has signed a contract with Tuinbouwbedrijf Marc Pittoors (T.B.M.P) BVBA, for the supply of a 7 MWe combined heat and power plant (CHP). The plant will be powered by two gas-fired gensets based on the new medium-speed Bergen B36:45L6 engine and will provide heat and power to a new tomato greenhouse in Belgium. The contract also includes a service agreement for 10 years. The gensets are scheduled to go into operation early November 2018.
Marc Pittoors will use the generated electricity to power the greenhouse artificial lighting and the heat extracted from exhaust gases and engine cooling systems to heat up the facility. In addition, cleaned engine exhaust gases will be injected into the greenhouse to increase the level of CO2 and boost plant growth.
Marc Pittoors, CEO of T.B.M.P said: “For our tomato producing company, three factors were crucial in taking this decision: electrical efficiency (best in the current market), expertise (Rolls-Royce developed a gas engine in the early 90s and was the pioneer in lean-burn technology) and optimum heat balance (5 hectares of greenhouse space are illuminated and 3.5 hectares are not).” Paul Hovius of PaCHov Consultancy conducted the sales and contract negotiations for this first CHP equipped with the new Bergen in-line engine.
“The greenhouse market is very important for us, and it’s a pleasure to sign a contract with a highly professional customer for this new generation of gas engines,” said Jeff Elliott, managing director of Bergen Engines, a fully-owned subsidiary of Rolls-Royce Power Systems and supplier of medium-speed engines.
Rolls-Royce will be supplying the complete CHP plant for this greenhouse, consisting of the power generator sets, the exhaust gas systems including a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system and heat exchangers, and the electronic control system. In total, the technology achieves efficiency rates of more than 96%.

Rolls-Royce Power Systems subsidiary Bergen Engines signed contracts for
the delivery of two power stations to Bangladesh with a contract value of 133
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, GERMANY – Rolls-Royce Power Systems subsidiary Bergen Engines signed contracts for the delivery of two power stations to Bangladesh with a contract value of 133 million Euro. The consignments to Confidence Power Rangpur Limited are destined for a power station in Rangpur delivering an output of 112 Megawatts electrical power. It will be supplied this year. A second, similar power station is set for delivery in 2018 as a further option. The second power plant to be delivered this year is a 150 MW power plant intended for “Midland East Power Ltd” that will be located in Ashuganj. Within the contracts are also spare parts deliveries over 15 years.
“We are delighted to have been chosen to help develop the power sector in Bangladesh,” comments Jeff Elliott, Managing Director at Bergen Engines. “Bergen Engines delivered its first Rolls-Royce genset engine to Bangladesh way back in 2001, and has since built power stations covering over five percent of the country’s overall power supply. These new power plants represent a major step forward for us, and we are totally committed to doing our very best for our customers and, indeed, the whole country.”
These contracts are part of the Bangladesh government’s ambitious plan to more than double national power generation capacity to 38,000 MW to meet a forecast demand of some 33,000 MW by 2030. Meeting this goal will require a substantial increase of a good 9,000 MW over the next four years alone – and this is where the medium-speed engines come in. A power plant based on internal combustion engines is easily built within just one year, whereas other alternatives can take as long as seven years to realize.

On a visit to Lake Constance, German Minister of Foreign Affairs Sigmar Gabriel
visited Rolls-Royce Power Systems in Friedrichshafen on Monday 14 August, to
hear about development and production of the very latest propulsion and drive
systems for ships, trains and heavy land vehicles, and for power generation.
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN – On a visit to Lake Constance, German Minister of Foreign Affairs Sigmar Gabriel visited Rolls-Royce Power Systems in Friedrichshafen on Monday 14 August, to hear about development and production of the very latest propulsion and drive systems for ships, trains and heavy land vehicles, and for power generation. “The Green and High-Tech programme at Rolls-Royce Power Systems opens up further prospects for German industry. The company has thus launched an initiative that I gladly support,” said Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel on his tour through the plant.
CEO Andreas Schell and CFO Marcus A. Wassenberg took the minister on a tour of the plant to explain the company’s Green & High-Tech programme and talk about the key international growth markets for this technology. “At Rolls-Royce Power Systems, we launched our Green & High-Tech programme in 2016. It involves us investing very deliberately in environmentally-friendly solutions of the future which are aimed at fewer pollutant emissions and lower consumption of energy and raw materials. It is absolutely key to keeping the company competitive on the international stage,” said Andreas Schell, and showed Gabriel a specific example at the company’s natural gas engine test stand. MTU is to ship the first certified production gas engines for marine applications in 2018. These MTU engines, which run on liquefied natural gas, have attracted major interest from across the world. The first pre-production engines are being delivered to the Strategic Marine shipyard in Vietnam at the end of the year for installation in catamarans being built for Dutch shipping company Doeksen. The vessels will be used to ply ferry routes in the Wadden Sea nature conservation area. Lake Constance, which is Europe’s largest reservoir of drinking water, is also set to get a new ferry powered by MTU natural gas engines in 2019.
The highlights of the product line-up at Rolls-Royce Power Systems feature not just gas engines, but also diesels with newly-developed exhaust aftertreatment technology to meet strict international emissions requirements, and also diesel hybrids. Large ships, haul trucks and trains all require high power outputs, meaning internal combustion engines – such as diesel engines – remain indispensable. MTU’s highly refined diesel engines are currently being chosen for new ferries in the San Francisco Bay area. California is regarded as one of the areas with the most demanding environmental protection regulations worldwide.
Rolls-Royce Power Systems makes 90% of its revenue abroad. “We’re concerned about growing levels of protectionism in some countries, trade barriers and sanctions,” CEO Andreas Schell explained to the Minister for Foreign Affairs.
Sigmar Gabriel was also impressed by Rolls-Royce Power Systems’ offering to employees – flexible working hours, a Group-wide health management system, leisure facilities and counselling services, as well as a day-to-day culture which makes it easier to combine work and family life. “In order to continue managing our company successfully as it moves into the future, and to adopt a leading role in the face of international competition, we want to provide a working environment which offers freedom – in terms of time and location – in the way people organize their work, and one which encourages creativity and personal responsibility,” explained CFO Marcus A. Wassenberg.
Since the beginning of the year, two Rolls-Royce
combined heat and power plants have been supplying energy to a new tomato
greenhouse operated by Maxburg BVBA in Meer in Belgium.
FRIEDRICHSHAFEN – Since the beginning of the year, two Rolls-Royce combined heat and power plants have been supplying energy to a new tomato greenhouse operated by Maxburg BVBA in Meer in Belgium. The two gas-powered gensets have reliably supplied over 20 Megawatt hours of heat and power to date. Maxburg is now the 30th greenhouse for which Rolls-Royce has delivered combined heat and power plants. Since 2005, no less than 52 combined heat and power plants manufactured by Rolls-Royce have generated a total electrical output of 270 MW in greenhouses in Holland, Belgium, Russia and the UK.
Back in 2008 and 2010, Rolls-Royce delivered two combined heat and power plants to the greenhouse operator John Vermeiren in Loenhout and in Merksplas in Belgium. As John Vermeiren says: “The high level of efficiency of the medium-speed gensets and their reliability impressed us so much that we decided once again in favour of Rolls-Royce for the energy supply of our third greenhouse in Meer.”
The gensets are based on the medium-speed B35:40 V12 AG2 engines from Rolls-Royce, each of which is able to generate an electrical output of 5,650 kW and a thermal output of 6,545 kW. They achieve an efficiency level of more than 96 per cent. The electric power is used primarily for the greenhouse lamps and, if required, is fed into the public grid. The greenhouse, which extends over an area of 10.2 hectares, is heated using the heat extracted from the exhaust gas and the engine’s cooling system. The cleaned exhaust gases from the engines are also injected into the greenhouses to increase the level of CO2 and boost plant growth. John Vermeiren expects to achieve an annual production of 7.5 million kilogrammes of tomatoes at the Maxburg greenhouse.
Rolls-Royce has delivered the complete CHP plants, consisting of the power generator sets, the exhaust gas systems, including the SCR systems and the heat exchangers. The electronic control systems are also included in the scope of supply. Operator John Vermeiren and Rolls-Royce have concluded a long-term service agreement for the combined heat and power plants covering approximately 4,500 hours of operation per year over the next 10 years.
