What Can the KA26 Low Load Operation Do for You?

Park your GT26 fired combined-cycle plant at extremely low load while staying emission-compliant.

This is achieved by completely switching off the SEV combustor and maintaining the EnVironmental (EV) combustor in low emission operation. The water steam cycle remains in operation, so the plant can quickly be brought to full load. 

Benefits

  • Increase load flexibility: LLO to base load in <20 min
  • Reduce fuel costs at lowest minimum environmental load: emission-compliant gas turbine combined-cycle relative load of <20% at about 35% efficiency
  • Maximum spinning reserve: spinning reserve of >300 MW in <20 min (>600 MW for KA26-2)
