Earlier this year, General Electric announced a new 510-megawatt combined-cycle power plant that claims fuel efficiency of up to 61 percent. Download Combined - Cycle Gas & Steam Turbine Power Plants The gas turbines are of 66MW capacity and the steam turbines are of . Natural gas will be used The Nikiski Combined Cycle Conversion Project is the cornerstone of HEA's plan for producing its own power when the existing power supply contract with Chugach Electric expires at the end of 2013, spokesman Joe Gallagher explained. The technology that will be Since the output temperature of combustion gas turbines is high enough to produce good quality steam, modern, high efficiency plants use a combined cycle that adds a steam boiler and turbine to achieve an over all thermal efficiency of nearly 60%. On Wednesday, Siemens opened a new 450,000-unit gas turbine production facility in Charlotte, N.C., next to its existing steam turbine generator plant. That is quite a bit higher than many people expect for coal fired power generation and is within the range of estimates for new nuclear power plant capacity. The power plant solution is based on gas fired combustion engines and steam turbine combined cycle. Since waste heat is being used to produce steam, the Nikiski HEA plant will see an increase from its original output of 40 megawatts to 60 megawatts without using any additional natural gas. The steam is then fed into the combined-cycle plant, increasing the steam turbine's power and creating extra megawatts of electricity, all without using any extra natural gas. The Flexicycle™ power plants can be optimised for different outputs in the 100 to 500 MW range. The formal opening of the plant comes as international players jockey to produce the most efficient gas turbines and combined-cycle natural gas power plants possible.
