Supported by three GE 6F.01 gas turbines, the Huaneng Guilin Distributed Energy Project will ultimately supply power to seven industries across the city. That includes heating to Guilin’s nearby life sciences, pharmaceutical and tech industries, as well as heating and cooling surrounding public, commercial, and residential areas.
Adding gas-fired capacity to the grid is increasingly viewed as a reliable, efficient, and cleaner alternative to coal and oil. Inasmuch, this project will be fueled by natural gas. Along with the 6F.01 turbines, GE integrated an innovative combined cooling, heating, and power configuration with a 210-MW output.
The project is the first ever gas power project for the city of Guilin and the largest gas power project for the province of Guangxi. It’s expected to replace 300,000 tons of standard coal; other emissions benefits include some 527 tons less of sulfur dioxide, 1,560 tons less of nitrogen oxide, 85% less dust, and a 70% drop in CO2.
GE provides timely, reliable, and customized solutions that help customers achieve breakthroughs for the sustainable development and transformation of China’s power industry.
