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 to provide natural gas turbines for Allen Plant in Memphis
January 18 2015 -
General Electric Co. has received an order from the Tennessee Valley Authority for two high-efficiency gas turbine generators to replace three coal-fired units that are being retired at the Allen Fossil Plant in Memphis. The U.S. government-owned utility supplies power to about 9 million people in seven states.
GE said the natural gas-powered generators will reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, compared with a typical coal-fired plant. TVA's board voted in August to retire the coal-fired Allen plant and replace it with a natural-gas facility.
