The first domestic class F 50 MW heavy duty gas turbine was successfully ignited for the first time


After 13 years of independent research and development, the first chinese-made class F 50 MW heavy-duty gas turbine, known as theCompetitive engine, was built on December 31,2022 at Huadian Qingyuan Overseas Chinese Industrial Park Natural Gas Distributed Energy Station, achieve first ignition success. This marks another step towards commercial operation of the f-class 50MW heavy-duty Gas Dongfang Electric independently developed by China, and will open a new chapter in the high-quality development of China's own gas turbines. Heavy-duty gas turbines are the core equipment in the field of power generation and drive, reflecting the overall capacity of a country's heavy industry. In May 2022, the national energy administration (NEA) officially announced that the Dongfang Electric G50 heavy-duty gas turbine (50MW) had entered the list of the first major technology and equipment projects in the 2021 energy sector. The machine has more than 20,000 parts, working pressure 18 atmospheric pressure, equivalent to the seabed 180 meters deep water pressure; working temperature of more than 1,300 degrees Celsius, at a speed of 6000 rpm high-speed rotation. The 50MW class F heavy-duty gas turbine is initially expected to be 2023 online in early January, reducing carbon emissions by more than 500,000 tonnes a year compared with power fossil-fuel power station, the combined cycle produces more than 70,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity an hour, enough to power 7,000 homes for a day.

On December 31,2022, the operation control room of Huadian Qingyuan Overseas Chinese Industrial Park celebrated the successful ignition of the first domestic class F 50 MW heavy-duty gas turbine. (Dongfang Electric)
