Growing vegetables all year round with cogeneration
One of the largest greenhouse farms in Russia, where organic vegetables are grown on an area of 63 hectares, is also a major user of CHP technology. Following a successful reorganization, today the farm is a modern complex for growing, storing, packaging and distribution of organic vegetables – throughout the whole year.
The greenhouses are provided with heat and electricity from a power unit which is equipped with eleven INNIO Jenbacher 6-series engines. These engines are able to run more efficiently thanks to the use of a high-performance engine oil – ADDINOL Eco Gas 4000 XD. This allows a prolongation of the oil operating times by up to 44% and a reduction of the oil consumption by up to 20%, which also enables the CO2 footprint to be significantly reduced.
