Korean CHP plant

Published on: 

Anyang District Heating Plant Unit 2-2, powered by GE 7HA.02 gas turbines, adds approximately 500 MW to the grid as well as steam for district heating for over 180,000 citizens of Anyang City, South Korea. This Combined Heat and Power (CHP) project allows South Korea to reduce carbon emissions per unit of fuel used at the plant.


GE Gas Power announced the start of commercial operation for this GS Power CHP plant. The Unit 2-2 project consisted of the renewal of older gas-powered assets with one GE 7HA.02 gas turbine, a matching GT H65 generator, one STF D650 steam turbine and a ST A39 generator, along with a Mark* VIe Distributed Control System (DCS), and services to support the availability and reliability of the plant. It has 62.2% net plant efficiency in combined cycle and more than 93% efficiency in district heating mode. The Anyang CHP plant will connect to Korea’s Direct Heating System (DHS), a centralized system which distributes heat to residential developments since the 1990s.
