    Outstanding performance and efficiency

    Excellent performance and outstanding efficiency

    The SGT6-8000H was the very first air-cooled H-class gas turbine on the 60 Hz market and has since demonstrated its high operational flexibility and low lifecycle costs. About 650,000 fired hours of operational experience make it the most reliable and tested H-class gas turbine technology available today. With a power output of 310 MW in simple cycle, or 460 MW in combined cycle operation, and a combined cycle efficiency of 61%, it is among the most efficient and powerful gas turbines in commercial operation.


    Highlights of the SGT6-8000H gas turbine

    In combined cycle operation, the SGT6-8000H gas turbine provides a power output of 460 MW and an efficiency of 61%. Its internal cooling air passages from compressor to turbine section ensure fast thermal response of the rotor in case of high load transients and fast cold starts. A gas turbine designed for short start-up times and high operational flexibility.

    The SGT6-8000H can be easily integrated in single-shaft (SCC6-8000H 1S) or multi-shaft (SCC6-8000H 1x1, 2x1, or 3x1) combined cycle plants.

    Our proven and validated package and plant concepts use standardization, preassembly and prepackaging to minimize field assembly and the need for piping fabrication during construction. This results in easy turbine installation and a shorter project duration. 

    The blade design is based on proven materials and manufacturing processes, while incorporating latest aerodynamic technologies. Your benefit: high efficiency and reliability, as well as low outage risk.
