GE’s Clarke Energy Starts French Landfill Gas-to-Power Plant

Clarke Energy, the distributor of gas engines for General Electric Co. (GE)’s power and water unit, opened a French plant to generate electricity from landfill gas.

The facility, developed by Veolia Proprete SA with 10 GE engines, is the country’s biggest facility of its type with 17.3 megawatts of capacity, Clarke Energy said today in a statement on its website. It will produce heat for about 2,850 homes and enough electricity to power more than 41,000 households.

The plant in Plessis-Gassot in northern France was jointly built by Veolia, its Dalkia subsidiary and Clarke Energy.
