Combined cycle gas turbine

Produce up to 50% more energy

What is combined cycle gas turbine?

A combined cycle gas turbine power plant uses a gas-fired turbine to generate electricity, while the waste heat drives a steam turbine to produce extra power. These two methods of energy generation mean CCGT is a highly efficient technology to lower your fuel costs and increase your productivity

Benefits of combined cycle gas turbine

 Increase your efficiency

Use waste heat to increase energy output

Reduce carbon emissions

Use a more environmentally friendly supply of energy

Lower fuel costs

Use less fuel per kWh than conventional thermal power plants

How combined cycle gas turbine produces energy

 A gas turbine burns fuel (most often natural gas) to create electricity

The ‘wasted’ heat from this process is captured and transferred to a steam turbine

The steam turbine is powered by the heat, generating extra electricity to substantially increase its overall efficiency
