GE’s Distributed Power business announced it is establishing an agreement with Clarke Energy to serve as GE’s authorized distributor of the company’s reciprocating gas and diesel engines in Papua New Guinea. This agreement will cover Jenbacher and Waukesha products and genuine service parts, including Clarke Energy’s fully comprehensive maintenance contracts.

Papua New Guinea has significant gas reserves that can help the country to meet its growing power demands. The country has a large oil and gas and mining industry, together with a growing population and an underdeveloped electricity network. From the remote, highland provinces to the major cities such as Port Moresby and Lae, industrial users of power demand reliable, localized power to ensure the smooth operation of their businesses.

Clarke Energy brings extensive international experience of the generation of power from natural gas, liquid petroleum gas (LPG), diesel and renewable fuels such as biogas and landfill gas. Through certified training programs and on-the-job experience, these skills will be passed on to Papua New Guineans who will participate together with Clarke Energy to help reduce emissions and generate cleaner and/or renewable electricity for their fellow countrymen.

“We are committed to helping Papua New Guinea meet its increasing power demands,” said Wouter-Jan van der Wurff, Executive Channel, GE’s Distributed Power business. “As the country’s distributed power needs grow, this agreement with Clarke Energy will allow us to better serve our customers. Through GE’s proven Jenbacher and Waukesha product lines and Clarke Energy’s expertise, we are able to provide a cost-effective solution to meet our customers’ needs while helping to stabilize the local power grid.”

Clarke Energy’s Papua New Guinea operations will be supported from the wider group’s engineering pool, with comprehensive engineering, procurement and construction services delivered in parallel with the company’s Adelaide-based Australian operations.

Clarke Energy’s main board director Greg Columbus commented, “Clarke Energy will focus on delivering quality installations based upon GE’s gas and diesel engine generating sets and gas compression units, backed up by extensive, locally supported aftersales service teams. We aim to ensure the highest levels of equipment performance, availability and customer satisfaction.”
