GE to upgrade Italian gas-fired power plant

GE (NYSE: GE) said it will upgrade two 30-year-old 9B gas turbines to GE 9E gas turbines to lower emissions and improve the efficiency, reliability and output of a gas-fired power plant in Trapani owned by E.ON Produzione S.p.A, an Italian energy producer.

GE will upgrade Trapani’s two gas turbine trains from 85 and 89 MW to 107.8 MW per unit. The upgrade will include temperature firing increases, advanced sealing features, new unit rotors and compressor.

The project will begin in the third quarter of 2012 and is scheduled to be completed in 2013.
