GE Gas Turbine upgrade assists Keppel Infrastructure’s carbon abatement goals

JURONG ISLAND, SINGAPORE —July 21, 2021—Continuing to keep its gas turbine fleet competitive in Singapore’s energy marketplace, Keppel Infrastructure today announced the award of a upgrade contract to GE’s Gas Power business to modernize KMC’s existing GT26 unit at the combined cycle power plant in Jurong Island, Singapore. With GE’s technology breakthroughs across every major component of this frame – turbine, compressor and combustor – the GT26 HE upgrade, the most advanced upgrade available for the GT26, can provide significant improvements for an F-class combined cycle gas turbine. The upgrade will increase the unit’s efficiency, extend maintenance intervals, and abate up to approximately 100,000,000 kilowatt-hour equivalent of carbon emissions each year in line with the government’s goals to lower Singapore’s carbon footprint.

“We selected GE’s GT26 HE solution because of its excellent part load efficiency and its fuel-flexible combustion system, the most advanced solution ever introduced on a GT26 gas turbine”, said Cindy Lim, Chief Executive Officer, Keppel Infrastructure. “With this innovative upgrade, our power station will benefit from improved efficiency with a lower carbon footprint, in line with the Keppel Group’s Vision 2030 sustainability goals.”

“We are proud to be building on the strength of our long-standing relationship with Keppel to provide the first HE upgrade in Singapore. GE and Keppel worked to identify upgrade solutions that could be deployed to increase the output, efficiency, flexibility, lifespan, and availability of its gas turbines, while reducing fuel consumption and environmental impact” said Ramesh Singaram, President and CEO of Asia, GE Gas Power. “Upgrading existing power plants—with life extension and efficiency programs like the GT26HE—ensure we are using existing assets to help provide more efficient, reliable power today and tomorrow. Keppel chose GE’s advanced technology to take a first mover advantage to blend the major F-class and H-class technologies in the Singapore marketplace and help KMC to maintain its position as a leader and future competitiveness.”
