The gas turbines will accompany one steam turbine and two heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) at the new 1.2 GW Haveli Bahadur Shah power plant. The steam turbine and HRSGs were engineered by Alstom, acquired by GE in late 2015.
The Haveli power plant is GE’s third project in Pakistan announced since October, marking the fifth and sixth HA gas turbines in the country.
The three combined-cycle projects – Haveli, Balloki and Bhikki – will supply electricity to nearly 20 million Pakistani homes.
“GE’s HA gas turbine and steam tail technologies going into the Haveli plant are both complementary and a standout in the industry,” said Joe Mastrangelo, president and CEO of gas power systems at GE Power. “At Haveli, Balloki and Bhikki plants, GE’s high efficiency technologies will help bring reliable power to the grid, so we can help Pakistan overcome shortages and meet its expanding energy needs.”
GE signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Federal Government of Pakistan to develop the country’s energy resources and meet the projected demand of 54,000 MW by 2020.
Including the two HA turbines bound for the Haveli plant, 33 HA units have been ordered among 82 technically selected by customers across the globe.
