GE has inaugurated the first gas turbine for the island nation of Tobago, providing flexible and sustainable electricity to the country’s grid. Cove Power Plant provides the electricity equivalent of more than 28,000 households using the most reliable gas turbine in its class—the LM2500.
The powerful turbine has a lightweight, compact carbon footprint, generating environmentally conscious power by cutting harmful emissions and water consumption. That, plus its ultra-high reliability, makes it ideal for power applications like Cove Power Plant’s and an island nation of more than 60,000 people.
Cove Power’s LM2500 provides firming to grids like the Island of Tobago’s through a cycling capability for multiple starts and stops every day, and a high partial load efficiency and deep turndown. The addition is a great fit for this fast-growing grid, with plenty of compatibility for the island’s future of clean, renewable energy.
