Setting a new standard of operational flexibility
Helping you achieve higher investment returns, the new KA26, which leverages the advanced-class GT26 gas turbine, easily meets the challenges of today’s dynamically changing power markets. In addition to powering traditional base-load power generation, the KA26 solution can produce reserve power to support renewable’s increasing share of the grid.
For the first time in an advanced-class engine, the GT26 gas turbine incorporates an on-line switchable operation mode. Opt for maximum power output or choose to extend the interval between maintenance inspection by as much as 30%, increasing availability and reducing cost.
This pioneering operational flexibility allows you to balance performance against plant maintenance costs, depending on the daily needs of the grid.
