ABOUT THE PROJECT

Playing a primary role in the decarbonization process of agriculture through biomethane is the manifesto of the Power Generation Innovation Area at CES 2022, featuring the world’s first variable speed low pressure natural gas, hybrid, multi-mode, 100% FPT Industrial genset concept. This innovative solution is based on the first F28 variable-speed, low-pressure methane engine for Power Generation, fueled by biomethane obtained by the anaerobic digestion of agricultural waste and cattle slurry.

In addition to fueling the genset, the biomethane produced on site can be used to fuel natural gas-powered tractors, such as the FPT Industrial-powered 2022 “Sustainable Tractor of The Year” New Holland T6.180 Methane Power, and cars, while the surplus of both electricity and biogas can be fed to the national grid. The aim is to create a sustainable, net-zero-carbon circular economy, enabling farmers to become ‘Energy Independent’ from fossil fuels and able to generate additional revenue streams deriving from biomethane surplus sales.

FPT Industrial’s partner in this project is Bennamann Ltd., a fast-growing British agricultural technology company in the field of clean energy, specialized in the supply and production of net-zero biomethane from organic waste.

The hybrid multi-mode genset concept can meet different customer needs with three main operation modes. Designed for peak shaving with a high load response, the Boosting mode sees the engine working at full steam and the battery pack stepping in to deliver an extra buffer to satisfy the required energy peaks. The Touring mode is focused on the durability of the whole system, with alternating operation between the engine and battery pack in order to optimize efficiency and preserve the lifespan of both components. The full electric Eco mode is designed for fuel consumption optimization and its autonomy at low load can be extended thanks to the modular battery packs.

In comparison to standard gensets, the FPT Industrial Smart Hybrid Hub genset concept delivers a wider power range with a 30-40-60-80kVA standard rating with just one generator, up to 20% lower fuel consumption, -22% engine displacement, and 2.5 times longer oil change intervals vs diesel constant speed gensets.
