Bi-fuel engine generators

These bi-fuel engine generators, rated at 300kW and 375kW of output, can operate on 90% natural gas and 10% diesel fuel. The basis of the bi-fuel system is a 12-L, six-cylinder inline diesel engine. Both the 300kW model and the 375kW model will be offered as part of this company's Modular Power system and the Gemini Twin Pack gen-set, in which two engines operate side by side. Benefits of bi-fuel engines include increased run times per tank due to reduced diesel fuel consumption, built-in fuel redundancy in the event the natural gas supply is interrupted, reduced emissions, and longer backup coverage during extended outages.
