E said it has secured a H-Class gas turbine order from Eneva, the largest private natural gas operator in Brazil. GE will supply a 7HA.02 gas turbine for Eneva’s new 350 MW Azulão reserve power plant to help stabilize the grid.
“The use of renewable energy sources is continuously being expanded in many countries around the world, but the grid infrastructure still requires highly efficient gas turbine technology to stabilize and support these variable technologies,”
said Eric Gray, president and CEO of GE Gas Power.
“Rapid renewable energy growth presents system operators and energy providers with the increasingly difficult task of continuously ensuring stability of the grid and a reliable power supply. GE’s H-Class gas turbine technology has earned a reputation for flexibility, output, environmental performance and high efficiency that has led to its rapid growth and maturation as a fleet worldwide, and we’re honored to add a new customer to our HA fleet.”
