Wolf Run, IMG Energy Solutions (PA, USA)
Jenbacher modular solution an excellent fit for Pennsylvania IPP
As an Independent Power Producer, IMG Energy Solutions develops, constructs, and operates distributed power generation assets that are located near natural gas production. It then sells the produced power into the PJM regional transmission organization. Headquartered in Pennsylvania USA, PJM is one of the world's largest competitive wholesale electricity markets.
IMG Energy Solutions’ Wolf Run project is located in Wilmont Township in Bradford County, PA, and consists of five containerized 4.2MW JGC624 J01s from INNIO Jenbacher for a total of 21MWs. Working with INNIO Jenbacher’s official distributor Northeast Energy Systems, IMG Energy Solutions commissioned the Wolf Run project in 2019. The project provides power generation during peak electricity demand hours and operates approximately 5,000 hours per year.
Wolf Run was installed on schedule and on budget due in part to the predictable nature of the pre-engineered, pre-assembled, modular building blocks of Jenbacher’s “containerized” solution. The project allows IMG to sell power into the wholesale market and benefit from the Jenbacher engines’ highly flexible operation, ability to start and stop whenever needed and to reach full power output in several minutes.
