GE Mobile GT Emissions

Surpasses standards thanks to selective catalytic reduction tech

In California, GE developed a technical solution on four TM2500 aeroderivative gas turbines for units used by the Department of Water Resources (DWR) in Yuba City and Roseville. Each of the four TM2500’s generate 34 MW, or up to 136 MW in total. The solution reduces nitrogen oxide (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions by over 90%. Mobile Power supports statewide energy during extreme load. The technical solution includes the installation of a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system, limiting post-combustion emissions. The technology works by removing common emissions through a catalytic converter transforming the nitrogen oxides contained in the exhaust gas into water vapor and nitrogen.
