GE receives H-Class GT order from Eneva

18 October 2022

GE has secured an H-Class gas turbine order from Eneva, the largest private natural gas operator in Brazil. GE will supply a 7HA.02 gas turbine for Eneva’s new Azulão reserve power plant, which is intended to to help stabilise the grid.

Eric Gray, president and CEO of GE Gas Power commented: “Rapid renewable energy growth presents system operators and energy providers with the increasingly difficult task of continuously ensuring stability of the grid and a reliable power supply. GE’s H-Class gas turbine technology has earned a reputation for flexibility, output, environmental performance and high efficiency that has led to its rapid growth and maturation as a fleet worldwide, and we’re honoured to add a new customer to our HA fleet.”

For the new 350 MW Azulão power plant, GE will provide a GE 7HA.02 gas turbine powering a H65 generator to give Brazil extra flexibility to manage its renewable-rich grid and its growing utilisation of non-dispatchable energy sources. The country counts on approximately 70% of its power generation from renewable energy: according to the National Grid Operator, wind and solar generation will grow from 15.6% (27.8GW) of the grid’s total installed capacity in 2022 to 21.1% (42.1GW) in 2026.

The construction of the new reserve power plant, located near Manaus, will start in late 2022, targeting the start of commercial operation by 2026.
