GE is set to provide gas turbine technology for a combined-cycle facility in Jackson Township, Pennsylvania, US.

The company has secured a contract from Competitive Power Ventures (CPV) Fairview Energy Center to supply two 7HA gas turbines and an engineered equipment package for the combined-cycle facility.

GE’s advanced power generation technology is expected to held CPV Fairview to add 1,050MW of electricity to the grid,  supplying power to around one million average US homes.

Expected to be operational in 2020, the project will be supplied with GE’s 7HA.02 gas turbines, steam turbine, generators and additional controls equipment.

GE Energy Financial Services, along with CPV and OGUSA, is an equity investor in the CPV Fairview project.

The partnership has provided around $700m funding to be used for construction, term, letters of credit, and working capital financing needs of the project.

CPV president and CEO Gary Lambert said: “We use GE’s cutting-edge technologies to provide the most environmentally responsible, highest performing and best economic solutions for our generating facilities.

“The high efficiency of their turbines as well as the company’s strong technical and operational support is why we continue to purchase their turbines, and CPV Fairview Energy Center is the most recent example.”

GE Power gas power systems chief commercial officer Scott Strazik said: “Our HA technology is more flexible and efficient than ever before, and it’s changing the way power is delivered around the world.”

Earlier this month, GE and Caithness Energy signed an agreement to develop multiple new HA combined-cycle power plants in the US.

As per the exclusive agreement, upon signing, GE will deliver up to six high-efficiency HA gas turbines, six steam turbines, six heat recovery steam generators and other equipment which are together known as the power island, for Caithness Energy’s power plants.
