GE and YPF Luz, the facility technology subsidiary of Argentinian power firm YPF, have introduced that La Plata Cogeneration II mixed warmth and energy (CHP) plant has begin industrial operations.
La Plata Cogeneration II is within the metropolis of Ensenada in Buenos Aires province and runs on a GE 6F.03 gasoline turbine.

The new plant is anticipated so as to add roughly 90MW to the prevailing 128MW powering the La Plata industrial zone and it’s anticipated to change into the cogeneration complicated with the very best capability output in Argentina.
GE’s gasoline turbine is supplied with a dry low NOx 2.6+ combustion system to significantly scale back the NOx, SOX and particulate emissions, in addition to upgraded superior gasoline path turbine module parts for elevated output and effectivity—making it probably the most advance 6F turbine within the GE fleet.
Eric Gray, vp for the Americas at GE Gas Power, stated the turbine resolution would “ship the wanted warmth and energy, whereas decreasing each water consumption and emissions, for YPF´s industrial course of”.
Construction on the plant began in 2017 with GE engineers starting turbine set up work a 12 months later, and this continued throughout this 12 months’s COVID-19 pandemic beneath further security measures.
