The AE94.2 Gas Turbine meets customer needs in terms of performance, emissions and operational/fuel flexibility for intermediate-class gas turbines, by delivering a competitive and cost-effective package based on established technology. The AE94.2 gas turbine is a benchmark for both operational and fuel flexibility. The ability to adapt rapidly to provide the requested grid power is becoming more and more important:
– start up and loading time: full speed no load reached in less than 5 minutes and baseload conditions about 15 minutes later. Fast loading gradient procedures can reduce this time to about 6 minutes
– best dynamic performance during grid support: 40 MW in few seconds is a well proven result on several units.
