GE to Supply Gas Turbine to Korean CCGT

General Electric (GE) on December 8 said it would supply equipment, including a gas turbine, to state utility Korea Electric Power Corporation’s (Kepco's) Shinsejong CCGT power plant located in Nuri-ri in Sejong city.

GE will supply the 7HA.03, 60-hertz gas turbine and other equipment with its partner Daewoo E&C. The Shinsejong plant will generate power to sell at South Korea's power exchange and heat for district heating in Sejong city, the country's administrative capital.

GE said its DLN 2.6e combustion system with premixer technology installed in GE 60Hz H-class turbines offered a step change in performance, emissions and fuel flexibility.  “This technology will enable the 7HA.03 gas turbines installed at Shinsejong to generate power with lower NOx emissions, three parts per million of NOx at the main stack with most efficient after-treatment system,” the company said.

This will help Kepco meet growing demand for heat, air conditioning, and electricity while reducing greenhouse gas emissions in line with the country’s “Green New Deal”, the government’s commitment to making the country carbon neutral by 2050, GE said.
