Combustion Turbine Reaches Final Resting Place
TEPC places combustion turbine for Datang's Gaojing gas-fired cogeneration power project
Tianjin Electric Power Construction Company (TEPC), a subsidiary of China Energy Engineering Corporation (CEEC), erected the No. 8 combustion turbine for Datang International Power Company Limited's 1380 MW Beijing Gaojing gas-fired cogeneration power project onto its final position on April 2013.
The No. 8 combustion turbine – a GE-manufactured PG9351FAB heavy frame combustion turbine – is the largest single piece of equipment at 309 tonnes.
The Beijing Gaojing power project is a key municipal project that is based on an existing 600 MW, coal-fired power plant located in western suburban Beijing. The project is furnished with three sets of 460 MW, gas-fired, combined-cycle units, including three combustion turbines (CTs), three heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) and two steam turbine generators.
Two CTs and one steam turbine generator are in the "2+1" layout, and the other CT and steam turbine generator are in the "1+1" layout. With the adoption of an advanced 9FB combustion turbine, a backpressure steam turbine and synchro-self-shifting (SSS), the project could provide a centralized heating service for an area of 19.24 million m2 upon completion.
Construction of the project kicked off in June 2012. According to the schedule, the first unit will begin operations in September 2013, and the entire project is expected to be completed in December 2013.
