Two Turbines For China CoGen Plant
GE, Nanjing Turbine Co. to supply technology; new plant to produce electricity, heat for industrial zone
GE and its technology partner, Nanjing Turbine & Electric Machinery Co. Ltd. (NTC), will supply two 6F 3-series gas turbines to Chinese power company Guodian Dianli for the Nanxun power plant near Huzhu city in Zhejiang province, China.
The cogeneration plant will provide electricity and industrial heating for the Nanxun development zone, supporting the Chinese government’s initiative for more efficient energy production with reduced emissions.
GE will supply the key components of the 6F 3-series gas turbines (flange-to-flange), while NTC will produce the generator and steam turbine for the cogeneration plant. GE also will provide installation services, spare parts, gas turbine training, a distributed control system and steam turbine controls.
The 6F 3-series gas turbine has a simple-cycle output of 77 MW, approximately 135 MW of exhaust energy, NOx emissions of 15 ppm, and will be capable of reaching approximately 71% cogeneration efficiency in Nanxun, the company said.
The first unit for the Nanxun project will be shipped in October of 2013; the second is scheduled to be shipped in December 2013. The plant is expected to begin operation in the second quarter of 2014, fueled by natural gas from China’s West to East Pipeline II.
