GE Vernova’s Gas Power business has started-up Competitive Power Ventures’ Three Rivers Energy Centre, a 1.2GW natural gas-fuelled combined-cycle electric generation facility.
Located in Goose Lake Township, Grundy County, Illinois, the plant consists of two generating blocks, each including a GE 7HA.02 gas turbine, an STF-A650 steam turbine, a W84 generator, and GE’s integrated Mark* Vle control system to provide gas turbine generator control and performance visibility.
GE’s STF-A650 Steam Turbines play a critical role in CPV Three River Energy Centre’s ability to compete in the energy market. The turbine configuration allows the plant to run at a lower output to reduce the need to shut down during low grid demand hours, thus reducing cyclic load maintenance.
The project is GE Vernova’s third GE H-Class combined cycle plant developed with CPV.
