ABB ANNOUNCES NEW 55 MW GAS TURBINE
ABB ANNOUNCES NEW 55 MW GAS TURBINE STAMFORD, Conn., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- ABB Asea Brown Boveri Ltd.
(ABB) announced today in Zurich that it has completed a highly promising redesign of its GT8 model gas turbine.
Positioned to compete with other 50 MW machines in 50 Hz and 60 Hz markets, ABB's new design could produce the highest efficiency in its class, over 35 percent at ISO conditions. The output has increased from 48 to 54 MW. Goran Lundberg, executive vice president in charge of ABB's worldwide Power Generation business, said, "This advanced industrial gas turbine is the result of ABB's own, intensive development work outside the gas turbine development program with Rolls Royce of the United Kingdom." ABB has continued to develop its state-of-the-art competence in advanced gas turbine technology. ABB continues to have a successful collaboration with NEI, a subsidiary of Rolls Royce. This joint venture has contracted over 2000 MW of gas turbine and combined-cycle power plants since its formation in 1989. ABB has recently brought two other significant achievements to the market in the gas turbine field. The GT11N2, a 108 MW machine for the 60 Hz market and the GT13E2, a 165 MW machine for the 50 Hz market. Both machines have been positively received by the market. Since their introduction just a few months ago, orders have been received for six GT11N2s and GT13E2s. In the United States, Asea Brown Boveri Inc., headquartered in Stamford, provides products and services for the power, process, industrial automation, environmental control, mass transit and other markets. The company and its subsidiaries have sales of approximately $5.5 billion and some 29,000 employees in the United States. -0- 5/15/92 /CONTACT: Karen Armour, 203-328-2217, or 203-655-9461 (residence)/ CO: ABB Asea Brown Boveri Ltd.
