GE Power recently announced an order for its HA gas turbine technology for the Hill Top Energy Center in Nemacolin, Pennsylvania.
GE will work closely with Kiewit Power Constructors (Kiewit), the engineering, construction, and procurement (EPC) contractor on the project, to integrate GEs 7HA.02 gas turbine into the approximately 620-MW power plant project. The order also contains a GE steam turbine and generator, one heat recovery generator (HRSG), and a multi-year services agreement.
The developer of the project is Hill Top Energy LLC and the financial sponsor is Ares Management, and the plant is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
GEs HA fleet of gas turbines has surpassed more than 300,000 operating hours and has secured more than 85 orders from 35+ customers across more than 16 countries. Earlier in 2019, GE announced that the HA was ordered by Fortress Transportation and Infrastructure Partners for the Long Ridge Energy Center in Ohio. Recently, GE also announced contract awards in Taiwan and Israel, and orders in the United Arab Emirates.
GEs HA technology has been recognized as the cornerstone for two Top Gas Projects from POWER Magazine and as a Best Gas-Fired Project by Power Engineering.
