KAWASAKI Gas Turbine Europe GmbH (KGE) is an affiliated company of KAWASAKI Heavy Industries Ltd. With its headquarters in Bad Homburg v.d.H. in the vicinity of Frankfurt am Main, KGE is focused on the gas turbine business throughout Europe.
KGE provides a complete and comprehensive range of products and services from one single source. Based on deep industry expertise and experience KGE plans, produces, installs and maintains Gas Turbine Generator Sets, mainly as cogeneration units. With performances ranging from 1,700 kWe to 30,000 kWe and 3,700 kW th to 75,000 kWth, over 140 of such units are already installed throughout Europe and over 7,800 worldwide.
Serving the European cogeneration markets since 1975, KGE customers benefit since 1998 from services and solutions covering the entire life cycle of a Gas Turbine Generator Set, i. e. planning and engineering, assembly, installation, commissioning and maintenance. Considering our customer`s specific requirements and conditions, we set up cogeneration facilities which fit their needs. In order to comply with the latest environmental legal requirements and safety standards, we also upgrade already existing facilities.
Since the introduction and implementation of the Renewable Energy Law in Germany (2004) to increase the share of high-efficiency power generation systems and to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020, Europe is expanding the decentralized energy and heat generation systems.
With the Dry Low Emission (DLE) System KAWASAKI succeeded developing a completely new combustion system in response to regulations around the world being tightened on the emission of NOx from stationary gas turbines. Operated with natural gas this system achieves emissions of less than 32 mg/Nm³ for NOx, as option 20 mg/Nm3 for the Gas Turbine models GPB17D and GPB80D.
