Gas turbines for Spain

GE Power Systems has received contracts from Spanish energy producer Iberdrola Generacion SA of Madrid to provide gas turbine combined-cycle systems for two power projects in Spain that will add more than 1600 MW to the country’s electricity grid. The projects – CCC Arcos de la Frontera Grupo III in Cadiz, Spain and the Escombreras project in Murcia, Spain – will be the first to feature GE MS9001FB (Frame 9FB) gas turbines, which represent the latest evolution of GE’s 50-hertz F technology. The first six 60-hertz, Frame 7FB gas turbines are in commercial operation in the USA. Each of the Iberdrola projects will be based on a GE 209FB combined-cycle system comprised of two Frame 9FB gas turbine-generators and one steam turbine-generator. The projects also will feature GE D11 steam turbines equipped with new 48-inch last-stage buckets, and GE’s 330H generators. The Arcos III and Escombreras projects will use natural gas and operate at a combined-cycle thermal efficiency of more than 58%, placing them among the world’s more efficient combined-cycle power stations. The gas turbines will be manufactured at GE’s Greenville, SC facility and the steam turbine and generators will be built at GE’s Schenectady, NY plant.
