The first CW251B12 engine has been operating for about a year at a paper mill in a cogeneration application. The engine generates electricity, and the exhaust heat is used in a supplementary fired Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) to produce steam. The steam generated in the HRSG plus additional process steam is used to produce electrical power in a condensing steam turbine. Steam extracted from the steam turbine is in turn used in the paper mill. This paper describes the operating experience of the gas turbine and provides some details of the site performance test.
