Turbines come to Kalamazoo

Western Michigan University`s Kalamazoo campus is building a new cogeneration plant to enable the campus to meet emissions regulations. The new combustion system, developed by Allison Engine Co. in partnership with the Gas Research Institute, has demonstrated emissions levels of less than 25 ppm NOx and 50 ppm CO. Each of the 4 MW units incorporates an Allison 501KB5S gas turbine, complete with dry low-NOx LE IV combustion liners. The cogeneration facility is planned to start operation in mid-1997. The turbines were delivered in November 1996 as part of a $5 million contract.
