A new, 13MW class, heavy duty gas turbine, the “MF-111” was developed for use as a prime mover for cogeneration, combined cycle and repowering applications. The use of such equipment in refineries presents special challenges as regards the combustion of nonstandard fuels, tolerance of industrial environments, and accomodation of site-specific design requirements. Such circumstances add substantially to the tasks of proving and adjusting the design of a new gas turbine, meeting stringent emissions requirements and introducing to the world of industrial gas turbines the benefits of F-class (1250°C burner outlet temperature) levels of thermodynamic performance.

This paper describes how these challenges have successfully been met during the three calendar years and ten machine-years of MF-111 refinery-application experience accumulated to-late.
