En anglais: AGR Amy Johnson Way 7.1MW Peaking Plant

AGR is a leading renewable energy company who operates one of the largest peaking portfolios in the UK. AGR identified an opportunity to install a power generation plant within the Amy Johnson building in Blackpool, with the potential for deployment into the UK Capacity Market. Following a tender process, Clarke Energy were chosen to deliver a full turnkey, design and build 7.1MWe electricity generating peaking plant, enabling AGR to provide a reliable source of electricity capacity to the National Grid.

Clarke Energy proposed a configuration of a Jenbacher JGS616 and JGS624 model which has advanced 2-stage turbocharging technology which offers high electrical efficiency combined with improved flexibility. INNIO’s Jenbacher type 6 engines also have a short ramp up time to full capacity, giving the peaking plant a fast start capability. This enables the site to provide power generation at short notice to the national electrical grid during times of a surge in demand, or when the grid frequency needs balancing.

The engines were installed by Clarke Energy project management team into a pre-cast concrete, acoustic enclosure complete with a forced draught ventilation system to provide the required cooling and combustion air for the generation sets.

« At AGR we are very happy with Clarke Energy’s delivery of the project. The quality of the installation is great and since the start of operations availability has been excellent. »
