Flexible operation and delivery
A complete power plant based on Bergen medium-speed generating sets can be built in less than 12 months, also in areas with poor infrastructure. If additional power is required at a later stage, the modular concept makes it easy to extend the power plant, simply by adding more engine modules.
Hence, capital investment can be done gradually, as the need for electricity rises. Performance is not affected by frequent starts and stops, which make engines a good match for grid support services. The engines deliver reliable power for more than 25 years. The setup has a small footprint, making it ideal both in remote locations to support incomplete grids, as well as in high demand areas such as big cities.
We deliver a wide range of solutions, from baseload, variable load, peaking, grid support and emergency power to combined heat and power and hybrid solutions with renewable power sources. Our engines are configured to operate on natural gas, methane gas, biogas, liquid fossil fuels or biofuels. And we are currently exploring the possibility to blend LNG with hydrogen.

Long Term Service Agreement
Bergen medium-speed engines are characterized by high efficiency and operating costs, with optimized part-load capability.
With a Long Term Service Agreement (LTSA), our trained service personnel take care of maintenance, ensuring predictable costs and maximum availability. The generating sets will deliver reliable power for more than 25 years of operation.
Our generating sets supply continuous power to the grid with up to 98% availability. Service downtime is easily catered for with an N+ 1/N+2 configuration. Ensuring 100% power plant output 365 days a year. Typical applications include combined heat and power (industries, greenhouses, public utilities).
Fast power supply to meet periods of heavy demand, often on an infrequent basis, is efficiently met with our fast start mode. Our engines can ramp up to full load in 2 minutes, and the number of starts and stops is unlimited, and does not affect the maintenance program or equipment lifetime. Peaking mode can be exploited to benefit from the spot market tariffs.
To compensate for intermittent renewable generation and other instabilities in a power grid, fast back-up power is key. The fast start and ramp-up capabilities of our flexible generating sets ensure that the grid stability is managed efficiently, both at high and low loads, giving you optimal fuel economy and low emissions.
Back-up / Emergency
Our generating sets are ready to kick in fast when emergency power is needed for critical applications such as nuclear power plants, hospitals and in some cases airports and data centres.
