Shining a light on Tomatoes

Royal Pride Holland is using the J624 GS engines to power the greenhouse's new cogeneration plant. Some of the power generated is used for lighting for the tomatoes, but most is supplied to the public power grid. Because the waste heat from the engines can be used at very low temperatures, and the CO2 in its exhaust gas can also be used, the overall level of efficiency is 95 percent.
