Wartsila's power generation business is increasingly focusing on renewable integration in power grids as well as a decentralised approach to energy generation, Melle Kruisdijk, Europe area vice president at Wartsila power plants said.
The combination of renewables and gas generation “has a bright future in the European energy system” he told Gas to Power Journal.
GE and Gama Energy have signed an agreement to operate Turkey's first digital power plant.
GE is to install Gama's 840 MW İç Anadolu Natural Gas Combined Cycle Power Plant in the city of Kırıkkale with its Asset Performance Management (APM) and Operations Optimization (OO) digital solutions tools solutions using Predix, the operating system for the Industrial Internet.
Siemens has successfully completed tests for gas turbine blades completely produced using Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology.
Additive Manufacturing is a process that builds parts layer-by-layer from sliced CAD models to form solid objects.
Also known as '3D printing', “it especially provides benefits in rapid prototyping” Siemens explained.
MAN Diesel & Turbo is to supply a compact gas turbine package for the decentralised production of heat and power to ENN Ubiquitous Energy Network Technology, a subsidiary of the ENN Group, in China.
The unit includes a MAN MGT series gas turbine which will produce approximately 6 MW of power and 12 MW of heat for an industrial zone in Huai’an (Jiangsu province).
