What Can the EV-Alpha Burner Do for You?

Every power plant owner understands the challenges of complying with stricter emissions regulations as well as the need for operational flexibility. The new EV-alpha burner for GT8, GT11N, and GT13D gas turbines with fuel gas is the result of our continuing research and investment in burner technology.

The EV-alpha burner benefits from the features of GE’s proven EnVironmental (EV) burner, while using the latest state-of-the-art combustion technology. Additionally, it brings nitrous oxide (NOx) performance down to single digit parts per million (ppm) under base load condition.

Benefits

  • Significant emissions reductions down to low gas turbine relative loads
  • NOx emissions at upper part load reduced by up to 40%
  • NOx emissions at base load:
    • GT11N: <10 ppm
    • GT13D: <15 ppm
    • GT8: <25 ppm
  • Unchanged or even improved pulsation behavior during steady-state and transient operations
  • Dry operation (no water/steam injection needed)
  • Dual fuel capability unaffected
  • Enhanced combustion reliability due to improved pulsation behavior
