Clarke Energy announced on 28 August that it has been selected as preferred supplier for Symbion Power’s two projects to use methane gas from Lake Kivu to generate power. If a contract is finalised, Clarke Energy will supply 25 3MW General Electric J620 Jenbacher gas engines to Kivu56 and Kibuye Power 1 (KP1), which are expected to begin construction this year. Biogas from the lake contains around 20% methane, which is too low for a Jenbacher engine.
