This paper describes the design of an uprated turbine for the GT8 gas turbine. The new turbine is installed in the GT8C gas turbine unit. The entire aero-thermal performance of the old turbine has been re-assessed and the new design improves upon the old unit by a 3.5% point increase in gas turbine efficiency. Additionally, the heat transfer and cooling of the turbine has been improved with the blading having more uniform thermal loading resulting in improved thermo-mechanical life-time. This has been achieved with better cooling technology whilst still maintaining the same cooling air mass flow. The paper describes the steps involved in the uprating.
