GE to supply 48 MW gas turbine to Turkish power producer

GE announced today it will supply a 48-MW LM6000-PC Sprint aeroderivative gas turbine and related services to independent power producer Bis Enerji Elektrik Uretim AS for the expansion of one of Turkey’s largest merchant power plants.

Bis Enerji’s plant in Bursa, a heavily industrialized city in northwest Turkey and center of the country’s automotive industry, already features power generation equipment based exclusively on GE technology.

The new LM6000-PC Sprint unit and an associated steam turbine–generator will increase the cogeneration plant’s installed capacity from 410 MW to 495 MW, or enough to power approximately 200,000 more Turkish households, when it enters commercial operation in August 2012.

The plant currently has six GE aeroderivative gas turbines, one GE 6B heavy-duty gas turbine and two GE steam turbines, with all gas turbines fueled by natural gas.
