GE’s High-Performing Advanced Gas Path Solution Expanded To 9F-3, 9E Gas Turbine Fleets And Will Deliver More Power To Growing Asia Region And Beyond

Stocks in this article: GE

GE (NYSE: GE) announced today the expansion of its high-performance Advanced Gas Path (AGP) portfolio to its 9F-3 and 9E gas turbine customers operating in Asian energy markets and around the globe. This technology, which is proven to deliver industry-leading upgrade performance, marks the first of its kind available for comparably sized gas turbine assets in both classes. GE made the announcement today at the 2013 POWER-GEN Asia Conference & Exhibition.

“GE’s AGP technology exemplifies the levels of flexibility and performance our customers demand to remain competitive in both growing and mature energy markets around the world,” said Fintan Tuffy, general manager of Fleet Analytics & Performance Management for GE’s Power Generation Services business. “With a number of Asian markets ranking at the top of expected energy demand growth regions over the next decade, this solution can play an integral role in helping our customers meet these future needs by unlocking the full potential of their existing assets.”

With more than 120 AGP systems sold and 37 upgrades already in operation on GE 7F-3 gas turbines around the globe, this proven solution can now unleash higher performance for GE customers with installed assets such as:

ENKA, which generates more than 13 percent of electricity for Turkey, has placed the first order for GE’s 9F-3 AGP technology for 10 of its gas turbines at the Gebze, Adapazar and İzmir power plants. The upgrades are expected to deliver a total of up to approximately 150 additional megawatts (MW) of power, enough to generate electricity for more than 200,000 additional households in Turkey. ENKA also expects to lower its emissions footprint with the installation of the AGP solution in tandem with GE’s Dry Low NO x (DLN) 2.6+ combustion system upgrade. Installation of the technologies is scheduled to begin in late 2015, with a targeted completion date of 2018 for all 10 gas turbine upgrades.

“The performance improvements this solution delivers to our plants will allow us to maximize the value of the energy we provide through power purchase agreements,” said ENKA O&M Chairman Mr. Tahsin Kösem. “This collaborative effort with GE will also put our sites in a better position with more available power and flexibility for electricity markets with demand increases being forecasted across Turkey. Additionally, this project increases ENKA’s contribution to help meet the Turkey 2023 Vision, which contains goals of increasing efficiency and lowering the country’s carbon footprint.”

AGP technology advancements feature hardware design and materials improvements to the components of GE’s gas turbine hot gas path system. These innovations are coupled with GE’s OpFlex* advanced controls software to expand gas turbine performance and enable GE customers to operate their power plants more dynamically. The AGP’s hardware and software technologies were developed based on data insights gained through analysis of GE’s more than 100 million hours of operating data on its global gas turbine fleet of more than 1,600 monitored units.
