SUPPORTING ECONOMIC GROWTH IN VIETNAM

The right solution for Vietnam’s energy needs

With a strong local presence and a commitment to helping grow Vietnam’s economy with the latest energy-efficient technologies, GE has gas turbine solutions to help Vietnam meet current energy needs while providing a path to continued regional growth. Gas turbine technology can provide energy security through the production of reliable, flexible and sustainable energy that supports and complements renewable energy sources. This is known as “grid firming”.

COST-EFFECTIVE POWER

Introducing the
9HA.02 gas turbine

Our HA gas turbine fleet has the lowest cost conversion of fuel to power, which translates to more power at a lower cost, lower maintenance needs, and reduced CO2 emissions—all good news for Vietnam’s energy producers and consumers looking to spend less on electricity.

GLOBAL EXPERIENCE

A powerful installed base

GE introduced the first HA-class gas turbine 10 years ago, and since then our engineering teams have been making continuous performance enhancements. Now the fastest-growing gas turbines in its class, our HA fleet of over 40 commercial units has accumulated more than 650,000 operating hours. In total, more than 45 customers have ordered more than 100 gas turbines. Learn more about the benefits of the HA gas turbine fleet here.

Our H-class gas turbines enable the most cost-effective conversion of fuel to electricity to help utilities meet increasing power demands while saving operating costs and meeting local emissions requirements. Our HA gas turbines have earned two world records for efficiency—one for powering the world’s most efficient combined-cycle power plant for EDF in Bouchain, France (achieving 62.2% efficiency on a net combined-cycle basis on a 50 Hz grid), and a second world record for achieving 63.08% gross efficiency on a 60 Hz grid at the Nishi-Nagoya Power Station in Japan.

Our 9HA.02 gas turbine features a fast, 30-minute ramp-up from start command to full load, and up to 88 MW/minute ramping capability in a 1x1 configuration or 176 MW/minute in a 2x1 multi-shaft configuration. The 9HA.02 also offers both standby and response modes to deliver emission-compliant operation at load levels of minimum fuel consumption. This feature complements plant turndown capability of 33% of full-load output. These units are also fuel flexible, with the ability to accommodate gas and liquid fuels with wide gas variability, including high ethane (shale) gas, hydrogen-blending, low-and-medium BTU gas and liquefied natural gas.

Installing a gas turbine in your plant shouldn’t involve any unknowns. Across our HA fleet, each original turbine is put through a rigorous full-speed, full-load (FSFL) validation test at our Greenville, South Carolina facility. This $200 million investment allows us to push the units beyond real-world conditions—running the turbines at 110% of their rated speeds at load, and replicating the harshest conditions, from the Arabian Desert to the mountains of Colorado—all to ensure that our customers have security of supply for their end users.

GE’s HA gas turbine auxiliary systems are pre-configured, factory-assembled and tested modules engineered to reduce field connections, piping, and valves. This translates to a simpler, faster installation that requires less labor and reduces field schedule and installation quality risks while improving overall installation times—up to 25% quicker compared to GE F-class gas turbine enclosures. This modular configuration also makes it easier for technicians to perform any needed maintenance over the gas turbine’s lifecycle.

PARTNERS FOR PROGRESS

GE’s 9HA.02 projects in the region

GE’s HA gas turbine technology is the technology of choice for the region’s power providers, and GE already has a strong footprint in the ASEAN region, with 5 9HA.02 projects—for a total of 10 9HA.02 gas turbines—currently under construction. Learn more about these projects.

Track 4, Pasir Gudang (Johor Malaysia)
MY-Track-4A.jpg

Owned by Southern Power Generation Sdn Bhd., this 1440 MW combined-cycle power plant is due to begin operations mid-2020 and will become home to Malaysia’s first GE 9HA.02 gas turbines. The heart of the plant will be two generating blocks, each equipped with a 9HA.02 gas turbine, generator and heat recovery steam generator. Overall plant performance will be monitored and enhanced with GE’s Predix* asset performance management (APM) software and Fleet360* platform of gas plant solutions.

Track 4A was recently declared POWER Magazine’s 2021 Power Plant of the Year.

Part of the Indonesian government’s 35 GW electrification initiative to power close to 11 million homes throughout the country, the 1750 MW Jawa One combined-cycle power plant is due to begin operations in 2021 and will be powered by two units of GE’s 571 MW 9HA.02 gas turbines and two units of the 309 MW D652 steam turbine. The plant will also be serviced by GE as part of a 25+ multi-year agreement that includes APM digital solutions, commissioning and installation, parts, field and repair services.

EGAT Bangpakong (Bangkok)
TH-Bangkapong.jpg

Thailand's largest gas-fired power plant, this 1,400 MW combined-cycle facility is owned and operated by the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand and will be equipped with 2 of GE's 9HA gas turbine. Currently planned for completion in 2020, the plant is expected to deliver more than 1,400 MW to the national grid – enough electricity to supply the equivalent of up to 2 million average Thai homes and will help Thailand achieve its goal of securing 57,460 MW of power generation capacity by 2036.

GRID FIRMING TO SUPPORT RENEWABLE POWER

Meeting tomorrow’s capacity planning challenges—today

Grid firming or grid balancing (also known as capacity firming or renewable firming) is the addition of another energy resource to a renewable power plant to provide secure, stable power any time the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing. Grid firming is vital for any power generation network, especially one like Vietnam’s, with a high percentage of renewable power sources.

INTRODUCING AERODERIVATIVE GAS TURBINES

Aero technology to support grid stability in Vietnam

Born from aviation technology, GE’s aeroderivative portfolio features highly flexible and mobile technologies for use in a wide variety of applications, including utility generation, district heating, mobile power, fast power, and of course, grid stability. GE’s aeroderivative gas turbines have a wide range of characteristics that makes them exceedingly suitable for capacity firming.
