Converging cultures, uniting goals: Bringing more power to Turkey
A construction conglomerate based out of Istanbul, ENKA has been supplying 13 percent of Turkey’s electricity since 2002, and has placed the first order for GE’s 9F AGP technology for 10 of its gas turbines at the Gebze, Adapazar, and İzmir power plants—a milestone for both companies.
Energy efficiency as a competitive advantage
EGA/DUBAL, the world’s second largest aluminum smelter site, runs its own 2,350-megawatt power plant and consumes most of the electricity it generates. Since the 1980s, the plant has relied on GE gas turbines to produce its power. EGA/DUBAL installed GE software, sensors, and an upgraded control system along with new combustion and hot gas path hardware in the turbines.
Supporting Iraq’s growing electricity needs
GE and Iraq’s Ministry of Electricity announced agreements worth $1.4 billion to deliver power generation equipment and services to support the growing need for electricity in the country. The agreements will enhance and provide stability to the country’s energy infrastructure by adding over 2 gigawatts (GW), and securing the delivery of ~1.75 GW of existing power to the national grid.
Reducing start-up times and lowering emissions for Southern California Edison
The Southern California Edison-owned plant collaborated with GE to develop a package solution that will reduce its start-up times, and lower emissions without using additional water. The combination of AGP, Dry Low NOx 2.6+ (DLN2.6+) combustion and OpFlex* software upgrades positioned Mountainview to help balance the region’s grid demands.
