The turbines will be operated by power utility Guangdong Energy Group.
GE will provide three 9HA.02 heavy-duty gas turbines for the Dongguan Ningzhou combined cycle power plant in Guangdong province, in the Greater Bay Area, the multinational industrial company said in a press release.
The gas turbines will be operated by Chinese state-owned power utility company Guangdong Energy Group.
“The plant will add 2.4 GW of power to the Guangdong province in alignment with national goals to transition from coal to natural gas,” said GE, noting that Dongguan Ningzhou will become one of the largest gas power plants in China’s mainland.
Harbin Electric, GE’s local partner for the project, will provide steam turbine, generator, and balance-of-plant equipment for the power plant.
“GE’s H-Class Combined Cycle Power Plant has unmatched efficiency available at >64% net combined cycle efficiency, higher than any other OEM or competing technology today,” said GE Gas Power China president Yang Dan. “In addition, our HA turbines being fuel flexible, have the capability to transition from gas to hydrogen, paving the way to a more decarbonized world.”
The Dongguan Ningzhou power plant is expected to be operational in 2022.
