Lowered emissions and enhanced features

The 9E gas turbine boasts Dry Low NOx (DLN) combustion with 5ppm NOx* and 25 ppm CO with around 30% Modified Wobbe Index (MWI) flexibility, and emissions standards that help meet World Bank requirements, including dual-fuel heavy fuel oil plants.

The 9E.04 gas turbine features a new 4-stage turbine module that fits within the same footprint as an already installed 9E gas turbine unit. Additionally, it has a 17-stage compressor with corrosion-resistant material, coatings, and inner barrel brush seals that can enhance compressor durability. Its compact footprint helps it create an easy incremental power addition when phased capacity expansion is required.

Wuhan Iron and Steel grows its operations—responsibly

In 2007, the Chinese company built the world’s largest blast furnace gas power plant, reusing the mill’s own blast furnace and coke oven waste gases to fuel two GE 9E gas turbines. The Wuhan plant produces 260 tons of steam per hour for steel production and generates 2.4 billion kWh of electricity, with an annual output of 1 TWh. Utilizing waste gas provides a number of benefits, and the mill also saves a great deal of money by generating 164 MW of its own electricity.

"One of the greatest challenges to the steel industry around the world is effectively addressing increased emissions regulations while controlling spiraling costs. This milestone project with Wuhan Iron and Steel will allow BFG flares to be captured with higher efficiency and lower emissions to recycle energy back into the plant."

Helping mitigate shifting dynamics in Japan

With nuclear power generation cut almost entirely, Japan has been experiencing difficulty in electricity shortages, especially during peak summer months. Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) was seeking to upgrade Block 1 of their Futtsu Thermal Power Station. The goal is to boost output and enhance heat rate, all while continuing to use existing steam turbines and generators.

In operation for three decades, the six older 9E gas turbines at Futtsu Block 1 are well-suited for GE’s 9E.04 flange-to-flange solution. This consists of new gas turbine components and a step from three- to four-stage, which increases hot gas components from nine to 12.
