Edipower Selects GE Technology for Plant in Italy

GE Energy announced recently that Edipower, a leading Italian generation company, has selected ecomagination-certified gas turbine emissions control technology to meet regional greenhouse gas emissions standards at the company’s Sermide facility.

Edipower will achieve the new nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions standards for combined-cycle power plants, the most aggressive in Europe, with the help of GE’s Dry Low NOx 2.6+ system. Edipower provides nearly eight percent of Italy’s energy needs, generating 7,700 megawatts (MW) of capacity annually, including 750 MW generated by renewable energy resources.

On Jan. 1, the region of Lombardy, Italy, enacted new standards limiting NOx emissions to 30 milligrams (mg) /Nm3 as compared to present levels of 50 mg/ Nm3, for a total emissions reduction of 40 percent.

The DLN 2.6+ system will help the power company meet the new limit and also will reduce the minimum operating load levels for the gas turbines to 35 percent, improving the operating flexibility and increasing benefits to both the environment and project economics.

GE will upgrade all three 9FA+e gas turbines operating at the Sermide facility with the advanced DLN 2.6+ combustion systems. To meet Edipower's requirements for a short-cycle project, GE will perform each upgrade starting in parallel with a planned maintenance outage, thus requiring minimal additional stoppage time to the power plant’s production.
