68,000 MW of New Gas Turbine Plants Will Begin Operation In 2015

Over 100 gas turbine projects totaling more than 68,000 MW are scheduled for startup in 2016.  These projects are all tracked in Gas Turbine Combined Cycle Supplier Program. 15,000 MW are slated for the U.S. while 53,000 MW are located in other countries  Most of the U.S. plants will include a steam cycle.  All will require emission control systems with selective catalytic reduction technology. Some will incorporate zero liquid discharge for the cooling and wastewater.

The U.S. total could increase if one or more of the Eagle Pines turbines becomes operational. The 3,400 MW Eagle Pines Project will include three natural gas-fired combined cycle power blocks.  Each block will consist of two 321 MW Alstom GT36 combustion turbines, two heat recovery steam generators and one 502 MW steam turbine.  The combustion turbines may employ evaporative cooling and/or inlet high fogging for power enhancement.  Each heat recovery steam generator is equipped with natural gas-fired duct burners.  The construction of the first power block is planned to begin in the spring of 2016.  Construction of the subsequent two power blocks are planned to begin fall of 2016 and winter of 2017.
