Gas turbine for Dutch power plant

A GE MS6001FA (Frame 6FA) gas turbine-generator will be the heart of a new co-generation plant to be built in The Netherlands. Under a contract of approximately USD 18 million, GE Power Systems is supplying the gas turbine for the facility, to be located in the Maasvlakte industrial area of the Rotterdam harbour. The co-generation plant is being constructed by Lurgi Energie und Entsorgung GmbH of Ratingen, Germany on behalf of Lurgi Nederland BV of Utrecht. It will be owned and operated by Utilities Center Maasvlakte Leftbank BV of Voorburg, The Netherlands, a company of E.ON Benelux Services BV, Rotterdam. Scheduled to begin commercial service in December of 2002, the plant will produce nearly 70mw of electricity plus steam for industrial use. The Frame 6FA gas turbine will be manufactured at GE Power Systems’ facilities in Belfort, France, and will be shipped to the Maasvlakte site in May 2002. Natural gas will be the primary fuel, and a GE Dry Low NOx combustion system will be used to limit NOx emissions.
