Rolls-Royce to supply Bergen gas engines to Contract Power Group
Rolls-Royce and its agent Penske Australia have signed a contract with Contract Power for the delivery of 15 medium speed gas gensets from Rolls-Royce’s Bergen Engines brand to power the Iron Bridge Magnetite Project in Western Australia, an unincorporated joint venture between Fortescue Metals Group subsidiary FMG Iron Bridge and Formosa Steel IB.
The gensets are based on the new Rolls-Royce Bergen 20-cylinder B36:45 gas engine, which was introduced to the global market at the end of 2018. The engine platform sets a new standard in power and efficiency with exceptionally low fuel consumption and emissions.
Through the Pilbara Generation Project, the Rolls-Royce Bergen gas gensets will be integrated with a 150 MW solar PV farm and battery storage. The hybrid energy system will be connected to the new transmission network Fortescue is building in the Pilbara, ensuring that the right amount of electricity is supplied in a reliable, efficient and environmentally friendly manner.
The new contract will be Rolls-Royce’s first project with medium speed engines for stationary power supply in Australia.
