Ge Launches Latest Evolution Of Its Ha Gas Turbine To Power Florida Power & Light Company’s Dania Beach Facility – Oct – 07, 2019 Carolina. USA – (Techreleased) – Access to affordable, reliable, and sustainable electricity is critical to growing economies and is fundamental to quality of life in the modern world. Helping to meet this growing need, GE (NYSE: GE) today launched the latest evolution of its HA gas turbine, the 7HA.03, which will power Florida Power & Light Company’s (FPL) Dania Beach Clean Energy Center near Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Retaining a common architecture and heritage of GE’s HA gas turbine platform, the 7HA.03 is a step forward for the industry as the world’s largest, most-efficient, highest-capacity 60-hertz gas turbine with industry-leading flexibility and the lowest cost of conversion for gas to electricity.

“At FPL, we’re committed to delivering reliable energy, and as part of our longstanding program of modernizing our fleet of power-generating facilities, we are replacing an aging power plant with a new, highly efficient energy center using GE’s latest gas technology,” said Bill Yeager, Executive Vice President of Engineering, Construction & Integrated Supply Chain at FPL.

The 7HA.03 offers several new design features, pulled from other HA designs, behind its unprecedented level of performance: a larger titanium R1 blade will enable greater airflow and output, while the adoption of GE’s DLN 2.6e combustion system—the first of its kind on a GE 60-hertz gas turbine—offers higher firing temperatures while maintaining emissions compliance.

“Our HA’s popularity and operational momentum for our customers around the world is something GE is very proud of, and we are thrilled to introduce the next industry leader for 60-hertz locations,” said Scott Strazik, CEO of GE’s Gas Power business. “This latest evolution of our HA technology will be launched at FPL’s Dania Beach facility, and we look forward to providing power plant operators globally—especially in the Americas and Asia—with the benefits of this incredible turbine.”

GE’s fleet of HA gas turbines has surpassed more than 415,000 operating hours and secured 100 unit orders from 40 customers in 18 countries—GE recently announced its 100th HA unit order for the Agios Nikolaos Power Plant in Greece.
