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
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.
The International Finance Corporation (IFC) is planning to invest $40 million in a 225MW combined cycle gas turbine power plant at Mandalay in Myanmar, in the form of debt financing. The project facilities will occupy about 11.6 hectares and the project site will be situated within a larger 280-hectare government-owned site.

Siemens unveils lightweight aeroderivative gas turbine for offshore industry
October 4 2015 -
Siemens recently launched its new lightweight aeroderivative gas turbine, the industrial RB211-GT30, for the offshore oil and gas industry. The combined expertise of Rolls-Royce Energy and Dresser-Rand, which supplied a significant share of the 20MW to 40MW offshore power generation on FPSOs worldwide will be used to offer better solutions for the offshore market, Siemens said.
Alstom upgrades gas turbines at Brazilian combined cycle plant
October 4 2015 -
Alstom recently completed the implementation of the first M-upgrades on two GT11N2 gas turbines installed in Central Geradora Termelétrica Fortaleza (CGTF), a combined cycle power plant owned by Enel in northeast Brazil.
The M-upgrade is a product developed by Alstom that is said to enhance power output, efficiency and availability of the gas turbine in a flexible way through extended intervals between outages. In the case of CGTF, the product increased the capacity by more than 8MW for each gas turbine.
453MW natural gas power plant connects to German grid
September 30 2015 -
France-based Alstom and German utility RheinEnergi recently synchronized the 453MW Niehl3 power plant in Cologne with the German electricity grid. The facility generates both heat and power from natural gas, and is based on Alstom's KA26 combined-cycle plant design. Both the companies had signed the agreement to develop the facility in 2012.
Elliott Group recently opened a 3,530 sq. m. turbomachinery service center in the Bidadi Industrial Area southwest of Bengaluru, India. The new facility, located near the Bangalore-Mysore expressway, will repair and maintain rotating equipment for customers in the oil & gas, chemical, petrochemical, refining, and coal industries.
