Gas Turbine Advantages

Compared to other power technologies, using a Solar gas turbine has many advantages.  Some of these include:

  • High reliability and availability
  • Lower operating costs
  • Utilizes clean and other renewable fuels
    - Natural gas 
    - Landfill gas
    - Digester gas
    - Synthetically produced gases including diesel fuels.
  • Lowers emissions
  • High quality exhaust heat stream can be used in other processes
    - Direct heat
    - Hot water
    - Steam
    - Process heating and/or cooling (combined heat and power) 
  • High power density
  • Broad range of power module blocks
  • Reduces construction costs
  • Easy to transport and quick startup 
    - Skid-mounted
    - Prepackaged
    - Trailer-mounted units 
  • Improve reliability
    - Site near the load
  • Easy to permit
  • Worldwide service and support
