Upgrade to boost plant output by 6% and efficiency by 1%

GE will implement its Advanced Gas Path technology at the 780 MW combined cycle plant owned by Edison, a part of EDF Group, in Torviscosa, Friuli region, Italy. The same technology had been implemented in 2018 at another Edison plant at Candela. The hardware upgrade to the existing two GE 9F.03 gas turbines at Torviscosa will increase the plant’s output by more than 6% and its efficiency by around 1%.

The Advanced Gas Path upgrade include improved designs and use of better materials to Stage 1, 2 and 3 buckets.

Project is expected to be executed within the end of the year.
