Rolls-Royce wins gas turbine design contract for UK Royal Navy’s combat ship

Rolls-Royce has been awarded a contract recently to design the gas turbine system for the Royal Navy's future Type 26 Global Combat Ship, which will, subject to contract, feature the world's most powerful marine gas turbine, the Rolls-Royce MT30.

The MT30 is derived from Rolls-Royce aero engine technology and builds on over 45 million hours of operating experience. Producing 36 to 40 MW, it is the world's most powerful marine gas turbine and has the highest power density – a key factor in naval propulsion where delivering a high power output in a compact space is essential.

MHI to supply M701F4 gas turbines for Uzbekistan's GTCC power plants

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has been awarded a contract for supply of its M701F4 gas turbine and generators for installation at two gas turbine combined-cycle (GTCC) power generation plants which Uzbekenergo is constructing in Uzbekistan. Featuring a 320MW class M701F4 gas turbine, steam turbine, heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and generator, the two GTCC power plants will support the country's robust electricity demand.

MHI to supply six M501J gas turbines for a 2,600MW plant in Taiwan

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. has been awarded an order recently to supply six J-Series (M501J) gas turbines for a 2,600MW natural gas-fired combined cycle power generation plant being built by Taiwan Power Company in Taiwan. The company's 60 hertz M501J gas turbine has achieved a turbine inlet temperature of 1,600 degrees Celsius, and is a high-efficiency gas turbine.

GE to provide gas turbines for 360MW Turkish fast-track project

Helping to meet Turkmenistan’s growing power requirements, GE will provide its aeroderivative gas turbine technology to Çalık Enerji, an energy company in Turkey. Three power plants will be built at the Akhal, Mary and Lebap sites as part of a 360-MW fast-track project, with the Akhal and Mary sites expected to enter commercial service by the end of 2013 and Lebap to follow in February 2014.

TAS Energy delivers TIC modules for Australian LNG project

TAS Energy recently delivered major Turbine Inlet Chilling (TIC) modules to Bechtel for an LNG project in Australia. The TIC system will deliver 14 000 TR (49 238 kWth) to the gas turbines running the compressors for the liquefaction process to ensure consistent inlet air temperature in the turbine fleet. 

One of the world’s first TIC application used in the LNG process, the concept is said to improve the gas turbine’s output when high ambient temperatures negatively impact its efficiency and performance, thus improving the overall plant’s MW production.

Siemens bags $800m deal to construct 580MW plant in Argentina

German engineering group Siemens AG said recently it has received another order to build a plant in Argentina, the Guillermo Brown thermoelectric power plant. The order volume, including power transmission, fuel supply solutions and a maintenance contract for 10 years, amounts to around $800 million. The customer is Fideicomiso Central Termoelectrica Guillermo Brown S.A.

Emera to buy three gas-fired plants in New England for $541m

Emera plans to buy three combined-cycle natural gas-fired power plants with a combined capacity of 1,050 MW in New England from Capital Power for $541 million, the Canadian company said recently. The facilities, which Emera said are of "recent vintage," are 520MW Bridgeport Energy plant in Connecticut, the 265MW Tiverton Power facility in Rhode Island and the 265MW Rumford power plant in Maine. The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2013.

Ansaldo Energia, FATA win $581 m contract for gas-fired plants in South Africa

A consortium led by GDF Suez has awarded Ansaldo Energia and FATA a turnkey construction contract for two open cycle gas-fired power plants in South Africa. The contract, valued at $581 m (EUR 440 m), comprises the development of the 670 MW Avon plant to power the Durban area and the 335 MW Dedisa plant serving the Port Elizabeth area.

MHI to build 2600 MW gas-fired combined cycle plant in Taiwan

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI), jointly with CTCI Corporation, an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm in Taiwan, has received a full-turnkey order from Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) for a project to construct a natural gas-fueled gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power generation plant with a collective capacity of 2,600 MW. The large-scale GTCC power plant, to consist of three islands of GTCC power generation systems, will feature MHI's most advanced M501J gas turbines.

Wood Group GTS expands maintenance services to new gas turbine models

Wood Group GTS has recently expanded its gas turbine service line and now offers maintenance, repair and overhaul for Solar Mars and Siemens SGT 200 (Tornado) dry low emissions and SGT 100 (Typhoon) gas turbines.
