What Can a Type 6 Faster Ramp-Up Do for You?

  • Faster startup. 
    Startup is nearly 50 percent faster than before the upgrade, with full output reached in less than five minutes.
  • Increased flexibility. 
    Enables operators to participate in new grid-regulating models and enhance their current operating modes through shorter start-up cycle times
  • Increased uptime. 
    Faster engine ramp-up in times of high electricity demand translates into increased power feed-in, the potential to enhance uptime during peak demand and, where available, take advantage of feed-in tariffs for highly flexible power generation solutions.
