A modified version of a commercially available General Electric MS7001E gas turbine has been successfully operated on synfuel derived from coal at the Cool Water Coal Gasification Program.

This paper addresses Cool Water’s experience with the MS7001E gas turbine in base load applications; starting and operating reliability; maintenance experience; modifications to the gas turbine including fuel delivery, combustion and control systems; and, future applications of advanced gas turbines in Integrated Coal Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) service.
