Gas Engine Generator

Green Gas Engines for lower operating costs, as well as low emissions to benefit the environment.

Best for: Industrial sector, Power Generation sector
ISO 14021 Compliant
Certified Green Products


In 2007, Kawasaki developed a revolutionary gas engine with 48.5% efficiency and a low NOx combustion system. Now an improved model with 49.5% efficiency is also available. Power plants employing our Green Gas Engines realize lower operating costs, as well as low emissions to benefit the environment. These high-efficiency gas engines can further reduce operating costs in simple cycle or combined heat and power applications.

  • World’s best electrical efficiency of 49.5% and 49.0%
  • Minimum impact on environment
    Less than 200ppm (0.8g/kWh) @0% 02</sub NOx emission
  • Wide and continuous operation range Flexible operation with a load range of 30-100%
  • High partial load efficiency Approximately 45% electrical efficiency at 50% load
  • Quick start-up – Less than 10 minutes from standstill to 100% load
