GE ships 12 gas-fired turbines to power plant in Israel

GE has shipped 12 LM6000-PC Sprint aeroderivative gas turbine-generators to the Dorad Energy power plant in Ashkelon, Israel, to fulfill part of its $200 million contract with Wood Group GTS.

GE expects the 50 MW units to begin commercial operation in the second half of 2013. GE's Veresegyhaz plant, near Budapest, Hungary, is manufacturing the gas turbine-generators.

GE's agreement is with Wood Group GTS, which is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for Dorad Energy. A unit of John Wood Group PLC, Wood Group GTS also is supplying the steam turbine-generators and related equipment.

GE’s LM6000-PC Sprint technology “solves the problem of how to deliver or remove large amounts of power quickly in response to changing conditions, with the same efficiencies and economics that are found in baseload operation,” said Darryl Wilson, vice president—aeroderivative gas turbines for GE Power & Water.
