GE Wins Order For 100MW Plant in Shahjibazar
GE Power today said it has bagged an order from Jiangsu Etern Company Ltd to supply its latest gas turbine for an upcoming 100 MW plant at Shahjibazar in Bangladesh.
The order, worth multi-million US dollars, includes supplying gas turbine equipment and providing related services for installation, testing and commissioning, a GE Power statement said.
The project is expected to be commissioned in the second quarter of 2019. The LMS100 is among GE’s high-efficiency aeroderivative gas turbines ideally suited to meet fluctuating grid conditions due to their heightened flexibility and helping to provide a high degree of stability to the grid.
The embedded dual-fuel capability gives additional flexibility to the gas turbine, enabling it to operate on both natural gas and LPG with zero fuel transition cost, it said.
The Jiangsu Etern Co. Ltd. has won the contract from Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) for setting up the Shahjibazar power plant on a turnkey basis.
