AE94.2 - The Gas Turbine for


a Flexible Approach
AE94.2 Gas Turbine and Generator package

The AE94.2 Gas Turbine meets customer needs


in terms of performance, emissions and operational/fuel flexibility for intermediate-class gas turbines, by delivering a competitive and cost-effective
package based on established technology.
The latest continuous improvements have been
made available for previous releases through a
retrofittable package.
The special AE94.2K version of this gas turbine
can also burn low-BTU fuels and high H2 content
gas.

Turbine blades/vanes, hot casing and mixing


chamber with advanced coating and Thermal
Barrier Coating (TBC)
Easy maintenance features (all blades and
vanes are replaceable with rotor in place, and
the hot gas path can be inspected with no need
to open the turbine)
Fuel system designed to manage non conventional
fuels (naphtha, crude and heavy fuel oil, low
BTU gases, hydrogen rich fuels, coal gases,
dwell gases, etc.)

A proven layout for a reliable engine

A benchmark in flexibility

Compressor cold-end drive


Compressor with variable inlet guide vanes
Disk-type rotor with two bearings
Improved compressor exhaust diffuser
2 vertical silo type combustion chambers
16 hybrid burners (diffusion or premix
operation) for natural gas and light oil
Axial exhaust

The AE94.2 gas turbine is a benchmark for both


operational and fuel flexibility. The ability to adapt
rapidly to provide the requested grid power is becoming more and more important:
start up and loading time: full speed no load reached
in less than 5 minutes and baseload conditions
about 15 minutes later. Fast loading gradient
procedures can reduce this time to about 6 minutes

Continuous process improvements guarantee the


best assistance for our customers: for example,
the latest maintenance procedures include extended spare parts stocks and streamlined logistics.

needs with a tailored solution

best dynamic performance during grid support:


40 MW in few seconds is a well proven result on
several units.
The AE94.2 is the best solution to satisfy increasing market demand of greater fuel flexibility:
optimum operation with a broad variety of fuel
compositions and characteristics (from naphtha
to heavy oil, fuel gas from different sources:
refinery, blast furnaces, dwells, etc.).
gas/oil fuel change-over: can be performed across
almost the entire load range and carried out in as
little as a few minutes in certain conditions
mixed operation (concurrent combustion of gas
and oil): this mode is particularly useful when
neither fuel gas nor fuel oil can be supplied in
sufficient quantities to achieve the base load.
Low emissions for challenging targets

The VeLoNOx burner, designed by Ansaldo Energia


to reduce NOx emissions in fuel gas mode, achieves
NOx emissions levels lower than 30 mg/Nm3 with a
small derating in power output.
Recognised excellence in commissioning
and after sales services
Ansaldo Energia offers a full range of services and
qualified personnel for erection and/or supervision,
start-up and testing of your AE94.2 gas turbine.
The availability of standard arrangements and in
some cases packaged solutions ensures rapid, problem-free erection, start-up and commissioning.
The Ansaldo Energia Service Organisation provides
technical assistance services worldwide, available 24
hours a day, 7 days a week, in the fields of maintenance, spare parts supply and preventive maintenance programs, so ensuring that customers are in the
best position to achieve optimum operation.

Ansaldo Energia has been working on the use of


low caloric value gas in heavy duty gas turbines
since 1997. The special AE94.2K version, specifically designed for low BTU fuels (syngas, steel mill, blast furnace gases, biomass, etc.), can
burn fuels with LHV in the range 8-13 MJ/kg and
lower. The combustion system, including the modification to allow it to burn a wide range of fuels,
has been patented.
