Oil-fired Siemens F-class demonstrates 25 ppm NOx

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

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.

New gas turbine air filtration system to cut corrosion, increase output

A new air filtration system from Altair, the ODSY vCell, is said to have hydrophobic properties combined with high efficiency performance, which is likely to provide gas turbine protection against environmental challenges.

Capstone will supply 25% of all industrial gas turbines by 2028

Forecast International, which continually tracks and forecasts the outlook for gas turbines, says that on the industrial and marine side, several stimuli are at work building a companion market for a related but different series of gas turbines of many sizes.  World demand for electrical power continues to rise, particularly in the rapidly developing Asian countries.

GE aeroderivative gas turbine to power Italian frigate

GE Marine has received an order to supply one LM2500+G4 aeroderivative marine gas turbine to Avio Aero of Turin, Italy, a GE Aviation business. The gas turbine will power the Italian Navy’s eighth FREMM frigate.

Through Avio Aero, at least 17 LM2500+G4 gas turbines are expected to provide propulsion for the Italian-French-Moroccan FREMM program, which includes eight ships each for the Italian and French navies and one ship for the Royal Moroccan Navy. Other international navies are considering the FREMM frigate for use in their fleets.

New 1,329 MW Warren County power station enters commercial operation

The newest member of Dominion Virginia Power's electric generation fleet, 1,329MW natural gas-fired Warren County Power Station, has entered into commercial operation. The power station, located just north of Front Royal, Va., can produce enough electricity to power about 325,000 homes at peak demand. The $1.1 billion facility came in on time and under budget.

Alstom to service North Bangkok 2 combined cycle plant

Alstom has been selected by the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) to provide turnkey maintenance for two gas turbines at the North Bangkok combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) Block 2. Currently being constructed by Alstom in consortium with Sumitomo, the North Bangkok CCPP Block 2 is expected to be completed in 2016.

Iberdrola Engineering to build 674MW combined cycle plant in Salem, MA

Footprint Power of Bridgewater, New Jersey has hired Iberdrola USA’s sister company, Iberdrola Engineering and Construction to build a 674MW combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) electric generating plant in Salem, Massachusetts.

(The CCGT plant will incorporate FlexEfficiency)

Siemens H-class turbines to power combined cycle plant in Poland

Siemens has bagged an order in Central Europe for the first time outside of Germany for turn-key erection of a combined cycle power plant to be equipped with the innovative Siemens H-Class gas turbine. PKN Orlen, Eastern Europe's mineral oil company is the customer for the 596 Megawatt (MWe) plant in Płock. Located around 100 kilometers northwest of the capital city of Warsaw, the plant is designed to be very flexible and can feed electricity into the national power grid.
