Following a thorough market analysis, the MS 9001F heavy duty gas turbine has been designed using aerodynamic scaling based on the 60 Hz MS 7001F.

Effort put into the design has been shared by the engineering departments of ALSTHOM and GE.

This paper discusses the market surveys for large heavy duty gas turbines as well as the basis of design for the MS 9001F, which has been derived from the MS 7001F. Specifically discussed are the role of scaling, the design characteristics of the MS 7001F and the MS 9001F, the results of 7001F prototype testing, the test plan for the MS 9001F, plant lay out possibilities and ratings.

The MS 9001F gas turbine uses advanced aircraft engine technology in its design, with a rating based on a firing temperature of 1260°C (2300°F), which is 156°C (280°F) higher and with compressor inlet flow 50% greater than its predecessor, the MS 9001E.
