High efficiency for medium sized plants
Fast, efficient and flexible
The AE64.3A is a quick start gas turbine that reaches baseload condition in less than 20 minutes by a fast load ramp, making it suitable for rapid grid support as well.
The AE64.3A was the first annular gas turbine in the world to be operated in fuel gas premix mode across the entire load range, simplifying the management of load rejection and transient modes in general.
Addressing a growing need for fuel flexibility, the AE64.3A can be fired with different fuels, including natural gas and liquid fuel (oils). Efficiency exceeds 36% in open cycles and stands at almost 54% in combined cycles.
The Minimum Environmental Load has been reduced keeping NOx and CO emissions well below current legal limits.
Smart maintenance approach
Extended 33,000-hour combustion and hot gas path inspection intervals. Easy maintenance features (blades and vanes replaceable with rotor in place, hot gas path inspection without opening the turbine).
Ansaldo Energia offers a full and flexible range of service solutions, from Transactional Services through to Operation & Maintenance contracts.
Customized service agreements allow customers to choose the best solution to fit their needs.
Well proven technology
Since 1991, Ansaldo Energia has awarded about 40 units of AE64.3A (including the previous version, AE64.3), with a capacity of 2.5 GW. Continuous product improvement, combined with consolidated reliability and robustness, have driven an increase in power output and efficiency values.
