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 CCGT

 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.
