This paper describes the results of an on going development program aimed at determining the technical feasibility of utilizing alternative fuels such as bio-mass derived BioOil, Ethanol, Bio-Diesel and bituminous Crude Oil in a 2.5 MW GT2500 industrial Gas Turbine Engine. This gas turbine engine was designed and manufactured by “Zorya-Mashproekt” in the Ukraine and further modified for the alternative fuels application through a join development program between “Zorya-Mashproekt” and Orenda Aerospace Corporation in Canada. The modification of the GT2500 Gas Turbine Engine hot section and combustion system to operate on liquid alternative fuels are described. Also described is an engine hot section online cleaning system and features of the fuel-handling module, which carries out fuel preheating and preprocessing. A test rig equipped with a load bank was designed and built to test the modified GT2500 Gas turbine Engine on different alternative fuels (full speed/full power). Results of the modified GT2500 gas turbine engine operation along with the emissions data are presented. The tests proved the technical feasibility of operating this gas turbine engine on the alternative fuels mentioned above. Based on these results a power generation package with the engine and fuel handling module have been accepted for commercial operation in a pilot plant under construction in West Lorne, Ontario, Canada.
