EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY & ABSOLUTE DEPENDABILITY

A Rich Legacy

The Cooper-Bessemer engine is the embodiment of the rich history of Cooper Machinery Services. In 1833, Charles and Elias Cooper started a foundry in Mt. Vernon, Ohio that produced farm equipment. A few years later, they expanded to horizontal gas compressors. The C. & G. Cooper Company eventually merged with the Bessemer Engine Company of Grove City, Pennsylvania, and formed Cooper-Bessemer Corporation in 1929.

Cooper-Bessemer Four Cycle Power Engines

Cooper-Bessemer® power engines have been installed around the world for use in electric power generation, mechanical drive, nuclear standby, and cogeneration applications. Cooper-Bessemer power engines are rated up to 8,700 hp (6,486 kW) and have been supplied for use with a variety of fuels such as diesel, gas, and dual-fuel. Where emissions are critical, the units have been furnished or converted to CleanBurn™ technology. Pioneered by Cooper, this technology is used for lowering engine emissions. 

NEW HYDROGEN TEST ALERT

COOPER EXPANDS USE OF HYDROGEN FUEL IN AN INTEGRAL ENGINE, TOPPING 30% BY VOLUME

In March 2022, Cooper Machinery Services (Cooper) successfully tested a slow-speed integral engine running on a hydrogen (H2) fuel blend (95% natural gas and 5% hydrogen by volume). This month, Cooper greatly exceeded industry expectations by successfully testing the same engine with a fuel blend of 30% H2 by volume, achieving significant reductions in CO, CO2, THC, and methane emissions.
