• ADNOC purifies and implements MXL2 upgrade solution on 13E2 gas turbines at GE Power Ruwais General Utilities plant.
• The MXL2 upgrade solution has increased the total output of both turbines to 23 MW (2 MW) and extended the interval between maintenance intervals, increasing the availability of each turbine by 6 days per year, thereby reducing the plant's overall operating costs.
• In addition, the MXL2 upgrade solution helps prevent 18,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.
GE Power has improved the operational efficiency and performance of ADNOC Refining's Ruwais General Utilities Plant by implementing its MXL2 upgrade solution on two GE 13E2 gas turbines.
Technology development has increased the total production of turbines by 23 megawatts (MW) using the same amount of fuel. This increases the availability of each turbine by an additional 6 days per year, which extends the duration of gas turbine maintenance intervals, thereby reducing operating costs. Furthermore, the upgrade solution will help deliver significant environmental benefits, preventing annual carbon dioxide emissions of up to 18,000 tons.
In addition to special products such as carbon black and anode, ADNOC Refining offers a wide variety of petroleum products, including liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), naphtha, gasoline, jet fuel, gas oil and base oils, fuel oil, petrochemical fodder and propylene. Coke. The Ruwais public utility plant has an installed base of four GE 13E2 units, which can generate 650 MW of power, which is an essential input to the company's manufacturing processes.
President and CEO of GE's Electrical Services and Gas Power Systems Businesses in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia Joseph Anis noted: “ADNOC Refinery has grown to be the fourth largest refinery in the world and is proud to partner with GE with a strong focus on enhancing the efficiency and sustainability of its operations.” GE's latest technological advances and the use of the MXL2 solution, which combines more than 10 million operating hours of the GT13E2 fleet experience, will support ADNOC refining costs per MW of power, increase the availability of their assets and reduce environmental impact."
In June 2018, GE announced its new MXL2 with Additive Manufactured Performance (AMP) as part of GE's Fleet360 * Total Plant Solutions. GE's GT13E2 is the world's first upgrade solution for gas turbines, using key components made using additive technology. The inclusion of manufactured parts in the MXL2 solution marks a turning point in the global power generation industry and strengthens GE's commitment to keep its mature fleets competitive in today's changing market. The new technology will enable the gas power plant to save up to $2 million fuel annually, while opening up the possibility of generating additional revenues of up to $3 million annually.
