The Mercury™ 50 gas turbine operates with a recuperated cycle to produce 4600 kW with a high thermal efficiency and very low emissions. Commercialized in 2003, the Mercury 50 gas turbine has completed an extensive design, development, and field evaluation program that insured a reliable and durable product that is easy to operate and maintain. This results in maximizing operation reliability and availability and lowering maintenance cost, critical factors in the distributed generation and cogeneration power generation markets. 6 Sigma, robust engineering and Kaizen methodologies were used during the design and pre-production phases to collect valuable input from users and prove out the durability, operability and maintainability of the product. This paper will review the Mercury 50 design for durability and ease of operation and maintenance.
