Stellar Energy will supply a modular chiller plant to GE (NYSE: GE) for a turbine inlet air chilling (TIAC) system at a 540 MW natural gas-fired power plant in Mexico.
The TIAC system will be applied to a GE LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbine at the Valle de Mexico power plant in Mexico City. The 1,800 tons of refrigeration (TR) chiller plant will include five air-cooled chillers, one power distribution module, one pumping skid and one control system.
TIAC mechanically chills the inlet air before it enters the compressor, giving the turbine a boost in hot weather and increasing the power output by up to 30 percent.
