The G.E.K. Power Pallet is a compact power
generator that uses wood chips, nut shells and
other commonly found agricultural and forest
waste to generate electric power.
Sawmill & forest waste
The G.E.K. Power Pallet is an integrated system
that consists of a biomass gasifier, a gas engine,
a generator and a sophisticated digital controller.
It can produce up to 20kW.

Benefits
Benefits

Diesel: $0.35-0.50 kWh

Biomass: $0.02-0.04 kWh

Low cost electricity

Electricity can be generated from biomass for as low as US$0.02–0.04 per kWh. Generating with diesel is much more expensive. In addition, the cost of similar generating capacity– 10-20kW – with solar or wind is prohibitively expensive without subsidies.

High Availability

The GEK is designed for small enterprises who need reliable power. The GEK generates electricity as long as it is fed with biomass, and performs like a die - sel for continuous operation.

Unlike solar or wind power, it is not affected by cloud coverage, or wind strength

Electricity in remote areas

The GEK Power Pallet is a distributed generation device. It works where there’s no electric grid or diesel, and produces very cheap power using lo - cal agricultural and forest waste.

Uses
Uses

• Pumps, wells and boreholes • Food processing • Refrigerated warehousing • Cell towers, radio stations • Small industrial commercial- (such as welding shops) • Hospitals and clinics (especially to keep vaccines cold) • Government: Remote military and civilian facilities • Rural electrification through Micro grids … and many others.

The Business Advantage

The G.E.K. is designed as a solution for the needs of small enterprises. Cost-competitive Simple to operate and train Consumes small amounts of biomass ,

so the business owner can focus on running the business, not collecting biomass.

Benefits Diesel: $0.35-0.50 kWh Biomass: $0.02-0.04 kWh ■ Low cost electricity Electricity can be generated from

Engine selection The G.E.K. Gasifier is offered with the following engines to meet a range of

10kW medium duty

An excellent combination of value and performance. This v-twin cylinder engine is built to last– it features 4-cycle, OHV, cast iron cylinder liners, and aluminum block construction.

High Power Performance: overhead valve technology provides greater volumetric efficiency and a higher com- pression ratio. This produces more power, improved fuel economy and cooling and reduces oil consumption. The variable speed, mechanical governor promises smooth performance, regardless of application or fluctuating de- mands for power.

Durable, Long Life Design: Hydraulic valve lifters are oil pressurized, ensuring that push rods stay in constant contact with the rocker arms. Requiring no adjustment, the valve train is virtually maintenance-free. In addition, full-pressure lubrication delivers continuous lube to critical engine components, and integrated oil cooler is mounted

under the cylinder cover for a compact engine profile and

superior cooling.

Engine selection The G.E.K. Gasifier is offered with the following engines to meet a range of

10kW heavy duty

The Kubota engine delivers High Power Density and High Power Quality in a robust, long-lasting and compact package.

Kubota’s engines enjoy a reputation for reliability and longevity in a wide variety of applications. This 3-cylinder inline gas engine is based on the company’s acclaimed diesel engines, and is designed to meet the toughest industrial challenges. The new combustion chamber, de- signed exclusively for the gas engine, effectively reduced both emissions and noise.

Engine selection The G.E.K. Gasifier is offered with the following engines to meet a range of

20kW heavy duty

Ford Powered 20 kW gas engine and Generator is an

1800 RPM setup that has plenty of power to run a busi- ness. This unit includes a Ford DSG423 2.3L 4 cylinder inline, electronic governor (0.5% frequency control), electronic ignition control module, cast iron crankcase

with reborable liners, cool flow radiator w/ fan guards, critical-type exhaust silencer, steel skid base w/ vibration

isolators (for smooth operation), brushless generator end

w/ automatic voltage regulation and control panel with

turn-key start and hourmeter.
