GE Oil & Gas has signed an agreement for the provision of two of its new NovaLT12 gas turbines for cogeneration applications (CHP) to two paper mills in Tuscany, Italy, owned by Lucart Group. The scope of supply also includes two fuel gas compressors, a Contractual Service Agreement (CSA) covering 140,000 firing hours for each train. Both units will be in operation by summer 2020.
As part of this effort to continuously improve operations capabilities, GE Oil & Gas is now running a NovaLT16 continuous operation on the electrical grid in a dedicated power gen station at its Florence facility. Certified by a third party, the targeted completion is 8,000 hours.
