Technical maturity and a high degree of reliability make GE’s Jenbacher Type 3 gas engines a leader in their range. Long service intervals, a maintenance-friendly engine design, and low fuel consumption ensure maximum efficiency, while enhanced components prolong service life—even when employing non-pipeline gases such as landfill gas.

PROVEN TECHNOLOGY

The world-renowned Type 3 claims more than 220 million operating hours of experience, with over 8,000 engines delivered since 1988.

EXCELLENT RELIABILITY

Its high degree of availability—up to 98%—and its longer service intervals mean the Type 3 is as reliable as it is durable.

THE FLEXIBILITY TO DO MORE

The Type 3 is fuel-flexible and solution-flexible—it can be installed in a container, as part of a generator set, or even a CHP setup.
