GE finalizes 17th HA gas turbine order

GE's 7HA.02 gas turbine

General Electric (GE, NYSE: GE) has announced the 17th order of its HA gas turbine technology. The 7HA.02 gas turbine and associate clutched steam turbine will be installed at a combined-cycle power plant owned by GS Power in Anyang, Korea.

The new installation will help provide district heating to a centralized and concentrated population network, with the goal of mitigating Korea’s cold winter temperatures, which can dip as low as zero degrees Fahrenheit.

GE’s 7HA.02 gas turbine is the world’s largest and most-efficient 60-hertz gas turbine. In full power mode, it achieves more than 61% efficiency and in district heating mode it achieves more than 91% efficiency. The plant will have the capacity to generate 935 megawatts of power in combined cycle mode, the equivalent output needed to power 900,000 Korean homes.

“GE’s 7HA technology has the largest steam exhaust energy output in the world, which will help us maximize our district heating needs in Anyang,” said Eung-Hwan Kim, Vice President, GS Power. “This output is a huge advantage for our customers, especially as we use this technology to replace the 23 year old aging plant.
