GE has introduced the beginning of economic operations for the Junliangcheng mixed warmth and energy (CHP) plant in Tianjin City, mainland China.
GE supplied the facility era tools for the brand new CHP gasoline energy plant that may change the present coal-fired energy plant. 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 yr respectively.
Today, the plant supplies as much as 661MW of electrical energy, the equal output wanted to warmth and energy roughly 100,000 houses in China residing 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 know-how in China. In addition, GE equipped the Mark VIe Distributed Control Solution, for full mixed cycle plant management and operation, whereas GE’s native companion on this mission –Harbin Electric – supplied the steam turbine, generator and balance-of-plant tools for Juliangcheng.
A consultant of China Huadian Corporation stated: “Coal-to-gas switching is an efficient and fast technique to scale back emissions and we’re happy to have chosen GE’s extremely environment friendly gasoline know-how for this mission… We are positive our mixed warmth and energy plant represents a finest follow for modernisation and transition of present coal-fired energy vegetation within the nation.”
“By offering GE’s H-class main know-how, we helped China Huadian cut back Juliangcheng plant’s environmental affect considerably,” stated Yang Dan, president of GE Gas Power China. “Coal-to-gas switching by retiring present coal-fired capability and changing it with new, excessive effectivity mixed cycle capability presents large potential to fight local weather change, and we’re honoured to assist our prospects like China Huadian on this transition”.
In response to China‘s fast financial and inhabitants progress, urbanisation, and booming manufacturing trade, the Chinese authorities has introduced its plan to scale back greenhouse gasoline emissions, confirmed by the current pledge to have CO2 emissions peak earlier than 2030 and obtain carbon neutrality earlier than 2060.

Natural gas-fired turbines 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 comparable to mercury, NOx, SOx and particulate matter.
In addition, to additional advance decarbonisation utilising gasoline energy, GE’s H-Class gasoline turbine portfolio presently has the aptitude to burn as much as 50% by quantity of hydrogen when blended with pure gasoline — providing a future pathway for even decrease or near-zero carbon operations.
