Industrial Gas Turbines


Meeting the increasing need for energy
World demand for energy is increasing,
both for electricity and heat and for
the drive of pumps and compressors.
For industry, a guaranteed power
supply is crucial to success, where the
key requirements are high availability
and reliability. Downtime of just a few
hours can have serious economic
consequences.
Industry is the main consumer of
electricity and heat. Needs vary from
continent to continent and
fromcountry to country.
In areas with less developed grids, a
domestic power plant is sometimes
a necessity to safeguard production.
In areas with large, developed national
grids, it may be worthwhile to install
distributed energy systems powered by
gas turbine combined cycle and
cogeneration plants.
Whatever the driven equipment, the
user requirements remain the same:
reliable gas turbines giving low life-
cycle costs and the best possible return
on investment in an environmentally
friendly way.
The gas turbine has proved to be one
of the most practical and economical
prime movers for the transport of oil
and gas and for the production of
power and heat.
ALSTOMs gas turbine experience is
extensive and includes long life on
offshore platforms, in blistering hot
desserts and arctic wastes and in
aggressive industrial environments -
in other words, wherever the operating
conditions are particularly tough.
At ALSTOM, we have been supplying
gas and steamturbines to industry for
many decades. Turbines which have
accumulated hundreds of millions of
operating hours in facilities around the
world.
ALSTOM offers a full service in gas
turbine power generation and
mechanical drive - fromdesign through
to lifetime support - a total solution for
increasing energy needs.

Industrial gas turbines
Products and Services
ALSTOM Powers industrial gas turbines
cover the range up to 50MW.
They provide the ideal solution for
stand-by and base load power
generation, cogeneration, combined
cycle and mechanical drive
applications.
Regardless of the application, our aim
is to offer our customers a choice of
products which are built to operate in
a profitable way. Firstly, by delivering
the reliability and efficiency you need
to keep pace with a volatile, highly
competitive market place, with its ever
changing business environment.
Secondly, by requiring minimum
downtime for service and repairs, thus
ensuring maximumavailability and the
lowest possible life-cycle costs.
Thirdly, through a carefully planned
service programme designed to have
your plant up and running again in the
shortest possible time.
This has meant committing major
resources to the development and
production of advanced technology
and our facilities are among the most
sophisticated in the world.
Total capability
With well over 3,000 gas turbines
installed in 85 countries we provide
our customers with expertise covering
all aspects of industrial power plant
technology including engineering,
manufacturing, turnkey project
management, financing solutions
and lifetime support.
Manufacturing quality
ALSTOMs manufacturing facilities for
industrial gas turbines are based in
Lincoln, UK and Finspong, Sweden.
They have been established for over
half a century and have played an
important role in the development of
the industrial gas turbine. Both are
certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001
standards

Engineering
With our extensive knowledge and
expertise we are able to provide
individual package designs to suit
power generation or mechanical drive
applications.
We have adopted engineering and
construction principles which are
designed for simplicity in operation
and maintenance. For instance,
modular systems permit fast and
efficient component replacement with
minimumdowntime.
Environment
Concern for the environment has been
part of our strategy for many years, a
fact that has put us at the forefront of
gas turbine environmental technology.
ALSTOM has developed advanced
emissions reduction technology to
minimise environmental impact.
Emissions performance varies with
product and specific parameters, but
generally all our industrial gas turbines
have Dry Low Emissons (DLE) capability
of below 25vppmd for NOx on natural
gas. Some gas turbines have even
lower levels and the Cyclone and
Tempest machines can operate below
10vppmd on natural gas.

Control systems
We provide control systems for all our
gas turbines. The control systems are
designed and manufactured to the
highest standards and provide optimum
performance and availability for your
gas turbine and associated plant,
whether it be in a cogeneration or
combined cycle application or turbine
driven compressors or pumps in an
offshore environment.
Turnkey contracts
We work closely with our customers on
turnkey contracts where we take
responsibility for the overall project
design of civil, electrical and mechanical
installation, including ancillary plant.
Financing solutions
We offer financing solutions designed to
meet customers specific needs including
hire purchase, finance lease, rental and
maintenance availability.
