The innovative, high-efficiency natural gas-fired cogeneration plant features two of GE’s ecomagination-qualified, 4.36-MW Jenbacher J624 two-staged turbocharged gas engines and CO 2 fertilization system. The plant will provide heat, power and CO 2 to Houweling’s 125-acre tomato greenhouse in Camarillo.
