Eurofo International Group, a Chinese green energy company, has signed a new agreement with GE Energy to modify the combustion and fuel systems of two Frame 6B gas turbines, enabling the machines to burn purified coke oven gas.
Following the modifications, the two units will be installed at a new Eurofo combined-cycle plant in Xiaoyi city, Shanxi Province. The combined-cycle plant’s output will be approximately 113 MW.
Commercial startup of the gas turbines at the new site is expected by July of 2007.
The turbines have been operating on heavy fuel in a power plant in Dalian, Liaoning Province.
