Project Challenge

General Electric’s Power & Water division helps advance power generation for communities worldwide. Its line of LM6000 aero derivative turbines has become one of the top selling gas turbines worldwide due to its fast ramp rates, 10-minute starts, cycling and load following capability, high efficiency, and modular maintenance. To provide even more power for the LM6000 when used in hot climates, GE sought a trusted supplier to outfit the LM6000 gas turbine with Turbine Inlet Air Chilling (TIAC).

Project Solution

Stellar Energy’s TIAC systems are ideally compatible with the GE LM6000, allowing the turbines to meet or exceed the design capacities by providing ISO conditions for combustion turbine inlet regardless of the ambient weather conditions. Stellar Energy first had to pass GE’s stringent First Piece Qualification (FPQ) process before receiving the first order from GE: a TIAC solution for a new 400 MW plant in Tanzania. The 1,800 TR modular TIAC system was built in Stellar Energy’s Jacksonville, Florida facility and was delivered to GE on time and on budget. The project was delivered in eight months.

Results

As an approved FPQ supplier, Stellar Energy has received orders from GE for TIAC solutions for two additional LM6000 projects: the Valle de Mexico power plant in Mexico and the Glenarm Repowering Project in Pasadena.  Both have an average project schedule of eight months.
