A System for Every Turbine

We maintain 50 standard chiller module designs that can serve loads from 300 TRs to over 50,000 TRs. However, we can deliver any level of customization requested to match a project's specific requirements. While we can provide TIAC systems for any gas turbine, our systems are frequently applied to the following gas turbines.

GE LM6000 Aeroderivative

High efficiency, fast ramp times, 10-minute starts, cycling and load following are hallmarks of GE’s LM6000 aeroderivative series which provides power in the 40-56 megawatt range. 

GE LM2500 Aeroderivative

The LM2500 delivers 24 megawatts in a lightweight, compact turbine that features dual fuel capability, low emission and fast load response. 

GE LMS100 Aeroderivative

The LMS100 is an intercooled gas turbine system, delivering 116 megawatts, with simple cycle thermal efficiencies of up to 44%.

GE Frame 9

With 299 MW output, the heavy-duty Frame 9 turbine offers combined-cycle efficiency at more than 60% for baseload, cogeneration and cycling applications.

GE Frame 7E

The robust and flexible GE 7E turbine provides 91 MW output and can handle a variety of peaking, cyclic and baseload applications.

GE Frame 7F

The heavy-duty 7F turbines - flexible and powerful for combined-cycle efficiency – offer outputs in the 231 MW range.

GE 7HA

GE’s 7HA is a large and powerful air-cooled gas turbine with outputs in the range of 275 to 337 MW. 

MHPS J Series

For combined cycle operation, the highly efficient J-Series turbines are environmentally friendly with outputs in the 327-470 MW range.

MHPS G Series

Based on the Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems F-Series with a focus on efficiency and flexibility, the MHPS G-Series features outputs in the range of 267 to 354 MWs.

MHPS H Series

The heavy-duty, frame-type H-Series turbines include the single-shaft H-25 Series and the two-shaft H-50 and H-100 Series.

MHPS F Series

The Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems F-Series turbines are powerful workhorses with outputs that range from 324 to 359 megawatts.

Siemens SGT6-5000

The SGT6-5000F gas turbine offers economical power generation with fast start-up for peak-, intermediate-, or base-load duty. 

Rolls Royce Trent 60

Derived from the industrial engine powering the Airbus A330 and Boeing 777, the Trent 60 is an efficient aeroderivative gas turbine with a unique three-shaft design.

Why Use Turbine Inlet Air Chilling?

Maximize Existing Asset

While actual numbers depend on many factors, it is not unusual for a TIAC system to cost one-third the capital investment of a new turbine and half that of a new peaking plant (calculated in dollars per kilowatt).

Improve Heat Rate And Reduce Emissions

When installed on a combined cycle plant, TIAC can reduce emissions by providing peak capacity at combined cycle heat rates and lower emissions than a peaking plant. In addition, TIAC can be fueled by renewable energy or waste heat.

Enhance Operational Stability And Flexibility, Including Opportunity For Energy Storage

TIAC systems can incoporate thermal energy storage, shifting power required to run the chilling system to off-peak times, when power is in less demand. This increases the power available for dispatch during peak periods.

Improve Financial Performance

While actual numbers depend on many factors, it is not unusual for a TIAC system to cost one-third the capital investment of a new turbine and half that of a new peaking plant (calculated in dollars per kilowatt).

Improve Power Plant Life Cycle Cost

TIAC systems can be installed on combined cycle plants to provide peaking capacity with superior heat rates to those of simple cycle peaking plants. By improving the heat rate, TIAC increases the power per unit of fuel, thus making the gas turbine more efficient.
