Jenbacher J 420 GS
Jenbacher emerged from the former Jenbacher Werke , which was founded in and manufactured gas and diesel engines , and locomotives. The company was bought out by General Electric in Although the company itself has a relatively short history, its origins go far back. In , a mine and foundry was founded by the Fugger family.
In , all Fugger properties in Tyrol were taken over by the state. Due to exhaustion of the copper and silver deposits, the mine changed its focus to iron. The company was acquired by Julius and Theodor Reitlinger in In , the mine ran out of iron as well, and after a boom during the First World War only the foundry was left.
Gas Engine Basics
At the beginning of World War II , all of Tyrol was seized and Aryanized, and the company was to 'work for the benefit of the country'. The plant made brake pads for the Deutsche Reichsbahn , and from they made airframe parts and rocket motors in Jenbach some to liquid-fueled aircraft rocket engine designs from Hellmuth Walter KG for Heinkel as the licensee.
After the collapse at the end of the Second World War the factory was placed under public administration. It had to be converted to civilian production, and started out with cookware , but also started with the repair of railway wagons.

Because of the availability of appropriate specialists and skilled workers, it was decided to concentrate on the production of diesel engines. This was followed by more two-stroke and four stroke models of engine. The company was now pushed to develop generators, compressors and pumps of the same quality.
The CA increased its share steadily and after the purchase of Mannesmann's share through the CA-controlled Andritz AG they acquired a vast majority of the share capital.
In 1, people were employed at the plant. In the majority of the company was acquired by Auricon Beteiligungs AG. JTS divisions. In the same year, JTS acquired Integral lost over 22 million Euros from to , and led to the sale of the Jenbacher rail car division to Connex.
Electrical Output Range
Jenbacher's railway activities started in , when they started performing repairs of rolling stock for the French occupation forces. Jenbacher Werke designated their locomotives according to a system derived from the type of power transmission, approximate performance, wheel arrangement or application and the operating weight. The other models carried the name JW.
Jenbacher currently specializes in lean burn gas engines , including cogeneration plants and containerized power generator sets utilizing said gas engines. Jenbacher began producing gas engines in Jenbacher's main facility still resides in Jenbach in Austria, and employs over workers. Jenbacher manufactures the gas engines from the ground-up at this facility, including in-house crankshafts.
Jenbacher gas engines are exclusively Otto cycle units with industrial grade spark plugs providing ignition.
Used jenbacher gas engines
Smaller models utilize stoichiometric combustion, while the larger engines are lean burn engines with prechamber ignition. Jenbacher engines run on natural gas , landfill gas , sewage gas , biogas , mine gas , coal gas and syngas. Due to this flexibility they are often used in applications where gas would normally be flared off or released into the atmosphere, to turn waste into energy.
Methane has a much higher global warming potential than CO 2 ,  and it is therefore interesting for operators to burn gas in engines instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. The J uses Miller cycle valve timing and two-stage turbocharging , along with a 'three-module' construction consisting of the engine itself, the electrical generator and the turbocharging unit consisting of both turbochargers and charge air coolers along with intake and exhaust piping and bypass valves.

In common with most current marine diesel engines , the J has a segmented camshaft , along with combining individual cylinder heads , the cylinder liner , piston and connecting rod into one easily removable modular 'power unit' for ease of maintenance and overhaul.
