Siemens builds on its successful SGT6-5000F gas turbine platform with a step change in NOx emissions while firing fuel oil by demonstrating 25 ppm NOx emissions with water injection. The current industry standard is 42 ppm for other OEM F-Class gas turbines.
Co-Re-based alloys: a new material for gas turbines
May 19 2013 -
It is estimated that future gas turbines will function at temperatures 200⁰C higher than those of today and that the materials currently in use cannot withstand such high temperatures. So there is a need to investigate new materials capable of resisting very severe temperature conditions and the heavy load on modern gas turbines.

GE’s LM2500 gas turbine completes 75 million combined operating hours
August 26 2015 -
GE recently announced that its LM2500 aeroderivative gas turbines have completed 75 million combined operating hours. The current fleet totals more than 2,800 turbines across six continents.
The LM2500 consists of a 16 or 17-stage axial-flow compressor, annular combustor, two-stage, high-pressure, single-rotor gas turbine and highly efficient six-stage power turbine. A single turbine’s output ranges from 16-34 MW and is available as a trailer-mounted generator set or TM2500. Its lightweight, compact design allows for quick installation and easy maintenance.
New 540MW combined cycle plant to be built in Woodbridge
August 26 2015 -
PSEG Fossil, a subsidiary of PSEG Power, will begin construction of a new power plant in the Sewaren section of Woodbridge, New Jersey at a cost of $600 million. The dual-fuel, 540 MW combined-cycle plant, Sewaren 7, is likely to supply electricity to about 500,000 New Jersey homes.
The construction of a new 475-MW natural gas-fired power plant is likely to commence at a facility in Middleton, Ohio, according to Gemma Power Systems (GPS). The company said it has received Interim Notice to Proceed (INTP) to commence activities under an Engineering, Procurement and Construction Services (EPC) contract with NTE Ohio LLC, an affiliate of NTE Energy, to begin construction of the new plant.
