Natural gas-fired turbine to go to CHP plant in Italy

GE (NYSE: GE) will provide an LM6000-PF Sprint aeroderivative gas turbine and related services to Enipower S.p.A. (Eni) for its Bolgiano district heating plant in Italy. The Bolgiano cogeneration plant (CHP) produces thermal energy both for district heating and cooling for Eni headquarters, municipal buildings and residential users.

The Bolgiano CHP currently produces more than 267,000 MWh of thermal energy per year using four GE gas turbines. The project is expected to be completed in December 2013. When completed, the plant anticipates an 84 percent reduction of NOx and a 20 percent reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

Due to the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) prescriptions and the age of the plant, Eni is upgrading the CHP by installing a new aeroderivative gas turbine and other new equipment to increase plant flexibility and efficiency.

GE’s LM6000-PF features high efficiency fuel gas consumption and fuel flexibility, coupled with lower emissions and water usage in both the 50 and 60 Hz segments, all while providing full generating capacity within 10 minutes.
