• GE’s Two 7F.05 Gas Turbines and DLN 2.6+ Technology to Provide Enhanced Reliability to the PJM Interconnection Region, Including 13 States and Washington, D.C.
• Fuel Flexibility Allows for Use of Clean-Burning Natural Gas and Backup Ultra-Low-Sulfur Diesel Fuel Oil.

GE announced today that it will provide two of its highly efficient and flexible 7F.05 gas turbines to Calpine Corporation (Calpine) for the York 2 Energy Center, a nominal 760-megawatt, dual-fueled, combined-cycle power plant that will be located near York, Pennsylvania, adjacent to Calpine’s existing York Energy Center in Peach Bottom Township.

The new electric generating facility will provide capacity and energy to PJM Interconnection, a regional transmission organization that helps ensure the reliability of the high-voltage electric power system serving 61 million people in 13 states and the District of Columbia. The new plant will have the capacity to generate the equivalent power needed to supply nearly 800,000 homes for a year.

Calpine’s York 2 Energy Center will use GE’s advanced 7F.05 gas turbines in a 2x1 combined-cycle configuration with GE’s Dry Low NOx 2.6+ dual-fuel combustion system, which reduces NOx emissions to as low as 9 parts per million during gas-fired operations without using water injection technology. NOx emissions will be further reduced through the use of a post-combustion selective catalytic reduction treatment system.

The GE gas turbines being installed at the York 2 Energy Center also can operate on ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel oil to provide enhanced flexibility and power plant reliability.

“We’re confident that our 7F.05 gas turbines will provide Calpine with higher reliability, efficiency and increased power output as well as a better life cycle value,” said Vic Abate, president & CEO, power generation products at GE Power & Water. “Additionally, the flexible, dual-fuel capability of GE’s units is increasingly important to help ensure power reliability in the PJM region.”

PJM coordinates and directs the operation of the region’s transmission grid; administers a competitive wholesale electricity market; and plans regional transmission expansion improvements to maintain grid reliability and relieve congestion.

GE’s gas turbines will be built at the company’s Greenville, South Carolina, facility, and equipment delivery is expected in December 2015.
