GE has introduced the beginning of business operations for the Junliangcheng mixed warmth and energy (CHP) plant in Tianjin City, mainland China.
GE offered the ability era gear for the brand new CHP fuel energy plant that can change the prevailing coal-fired energy plant (pictured). Following the coal-to-gas transition, the plant is predicted to scale back sulfur dioxide (SO2) and NOx emissions by roughly 1,194 and seven,775 tons per 12 months respectively.
Today, the plant gives as much as 661MW of electrical energy, the equal output wanted to warmth and energy roughly 100,000 houses in China dwelling in an space of seven million sq. meters.

The plant, owned by China Huadian Tianjin Junliangcheng Power Generation Co., Ltd., a part of China Huadian Corporation (CHD), options the primary commercially working GE 9HA.01 expertise in China. In addition, GE equipped the Mark VIe Distributed Control Solution, for full mixed cycle plant management and operation, whereas GE’s native accomplice on this mission –Harbin Electric – offered the steam turbine, generator and balance-of-plant gear for Juliangcheng.
A consultant of China Huadian Corporation stated: “Coal-to-gas switching is an efficient and fast methodology to scale back emissions and we’re happy to have chosen GE’s extremely environment friendly fuel expertise for this mission… We are certain our mixed warmth and energy plant represents a greatest follow for modernisation and transition of current coal-fired energy vegetation within the nation.”
“By offering GE’s H-class main expertise, we helped China Huadian scale back Juliangcheng plant’s environmental impression considerably,” stated Yang Dan, president of GE Gas Power China. “Coal-to-gas switching by retiring current coal-fired capability and changing it with new, excessive effectivity mixed cycle capability gives large potential to fight local weather change, and we’re honored to assist our prospects like China Huadian on this transition”.
In response to China‘s fast financial and inhabitants progress, urbanization, and booming manufacturing trade, the Chinese authorities has introduced its plan to scale back greenhouse fuel emissions, confirmed by the current pledge to have CO2 emissions peak earlier than 2030 and obtain carbon neutrality earlier than 2060.
Natural gas-fired mills have the bottom CO2 emissions of all fossil energy era fuels — a pure gas-fired mixed cycle plant has roughly 50% of the CO2 emissions of a similarly-sized coal plant, and decrease emissions ranges for different pollution corresponding to mercury, NOx, SOx and particulate matter.
In addition, to additional advance decarbonization using fuel energy, GE’s H-Class fuel turbine portfolio at the moment has the aptitude to burn as much as 50% by quantity of hydrogen when blended with pure fuel — providing a future pathway for even decrease or near-zero carbon operations.
