Distributor Jenbacher Gas Engines

Our Team & Services


Marinsa Caribbean, LLC  is being organized, at the outset of the deregulation of the energy industry in Puerto Rico, by a group of entrepreneurs to establish the premier combined heat power and gas power generation distributorship and service/maintenance provider in the Caribbean Basin with a base in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 

Service Capability

International has a team of 10 technicians that have current factory training on all engine models in our territory and have the knowledge and experience to solve any Jenbacher mechanical or electronic issue that may arise. These technicians are ready to travel worldwide and usually can be on site within 24 hours or less. 



  • We understand how important compliance is. 

  • We avoid all situations that may look questionable even if they are permitted. 

  • Any financial transaction are controlled by the Miami office and authorized by one of International’s executives. 

  • All International’s employees are trained on compliance. 

Combined Heat & Power

What is Combined Heat & Power?

Combined Heat & Power (CHP), is a highly efficient process that generates electricity and heat simultaneously. By utilizing the exhaust energy from gas engines, useful steam can be generated in a heat exchanger which can then be used in any number of applications, all with no additional fuel consumption. As a result, the overall efficiency of CHP systems can exceed 80 percent, making CHP one of the most energy-efficient methods of power generation. With the broad portfolio of gas engines, Marinsa Caribbean is uniquely positioned to provide its customers with the right products to provide the required ratio of power to heat for their CHP systems.  For more information on Combined Heat and Power (CHP) applications, view our webinar here.  Below are some common CHP applications.

The Benefits of CHP

By using one fuel source to produce both heat and electricity simultaneously, CHP – or combined heat and power - is significantly more efficient and cost effective than traditional power generation. Why? With traditional power generation, electricity and thermal energy are produced separately using two different processes and fuel sources-- conventional fossil fuels are used to generate the electricity and, in most cases, the heat produced as a byproduct to this process is lost to the atmosphere.  Then an on-site boiler or furnace is used to generate heat. CHP solutions use a single fuel in a combustion engine, to generate electricity.  The heat that is created as a result of the process is captured and recycled to provide hot water or steam for other uses--like heating or cooling for the facility. In addition to eliminating waste and increasing energy production efficiency, CHP solutions have many advantages.

Advantage of CHP:

  • Save money - Achieve up to 95% percent total efficiency, burn less fuel for the energy you need, and reduce thermal and electrical costs creating a payback in as little as 2 years.

  • Save energy - Realize energy savings of up to 40% using the energy from your engine waste heat.

  • Increase predictability – Predict against grid power price volatility and supply uncertainty for more accurate financial planning

  • Increase reliability - Achieve 98% reliability or more with the proven technology of  Jenbacher gas engines.

  • Energy reform benefits - Benefit from government energy reforms and associated incentives (green certificates and “efficient cogeneration“) promoting self power generation

  • Reduce emissions - With combined heat and power, you can make sure you’re meeting government regulations by reducing your greenhouse gas emissions by up to 30%.
