SPRINT LM6000 Spray Intercooling for Power Augmentation

SPRINT (SPray INTercooling) increases the power output of the LM6000 gas turbine by cooling the combustion air, resulting in a higher mass flow through the Low Pressure Compressor (LPC) and the High Pressure Compressor (HPC).

What Can Upgrading Do for You?

  • Increased gas turbine performance: up to 10 MW for LM6000PC turbines and 7 MW for LM6000PD or PF turbines.
  • As ambient temperature rises, the SPRINT® system produces higher incremental output and better efficiency.

How we get you there

  • Demineralized water is atomized with high pressure compressed air from the 8th stage bleed port and sprayed into the inlet of the LPC and HPC (if installed). 
  • The resulting combustion air cooling increases the air mass flow rate, which results in higher power output.
  • Operates on Mark™ V, VI, and VIe as well as Netcon™, MicroNet™, and MicroNet Plus™.
  • The SPRINT upgrade can also include a new broadband vibration monitoring module and updated fuel core software for improved operability and reliability.
