JENBACH, Austria--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 1, 2019--INNIO* announced today that it will supply six Jenbacher* gas engines for the LEMENE microgrid project in Finland, helping the Finnish government reach its climate goal of having 100 percent of its energy come from renewable sources by 2030. The LEMENE flagship project will be the largest energy self-sufficient business district using renewable energy in Finland. The combined heat and power (CHP) plant will enhance the security of the electricity supply in the Marjamäki area, located close to the city of Tampere, and the thermal energy will be used for district heating.
“The LEMENE project is key to helping the Finnish government reach its national energy decarbonization goals and to make the Marjamäki industrial district energy self-sustaining. We chose Jenbacher gas engines because of INNIO’s long-standing experience with gas engines, especially with burning greener gases such as biomethane. These six gas engines will provide the district with reliable, efficient and economically friendly power and heating,” said Toni Laakso, chief executive officer, Lempäälän Energia Ltd.
