Two-shaft turbine for high efficiency and low total cost of ownership in power generation or mechanical drive applications



NovaLT12

Our latest innovations combined with the best proven technologies of our gas turbine portfolio

NovaLT12 draws on our gas turbine technologies proven across more than 900 units installed worldwide—with over 80 million fleet hours.



Benefits

  • 36.8% efficiency in mechanical drive; reaching 84% thermal efficiency in Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
  • Flexible operation to 50% of rated speed; ideal in mechanical drive—can start with fully pressurized compressor
  • Lower maintenance costs thanks to higher availability: 35,000 hours MTBM and no seasonal DLN tuning

Features

  • High pressure ratio: 19:1 (8,900 rpm)
  • Annular combustion system: 30 fuel burners, fuel nozzles for low emissions (DLN) and wide fuel flexibility
  • Variable-geometry LP turbine nozzles for high efficiency over entire output range

Mechanical drive performance

  • Power: 13 MW
  • Efficiency: 36.8%
  • NOx emissions: 15 ppm
  • Exhaust temperature: 496°C
  • Exhaust flow: 42 kg/s
  • Speed: 8,900 rpm
  • Maintenance intervals (hours): 35,000 for hot gas path inspection; 70,000 for major inspection

At ISO conditions with natural gas fuel, ambient temperature 15ºC, no inlet or exhaust losses, sea level, 60% relative humidity.

Power generation performance

  • Power: 12.5 MW
  • Efficiency: 35.3%
  • NOx emissions: 15 ppm
  • Exhaust temperature: 496°C
  • Exhaust flow: 42 kg/s
  • Speed: 8,900 rpm
  • Maintenance intervals (hours): 35,000 for hot gas path inspection; 70,000 for major inspection

At ISO conditions with natural gas fuel, ambient temperature 15ºC, no inlet or exhaust losses, sea level, 60% relative humidity.

Physical specifications

  • Package dimensions: 15.7 x 2.5 m (LxW)
  • Engine dimensions: 5.6 x 1.97 x 2.15 m (LxHxW) including support structure, inlet plenum, and piping
  • Engine weight: 11.45 t

Applications

  • Pipeline
  • Power generation and CHP
  • Onshore
  • Offshore


Axial compressor

Evolved from our MS5002E design with one stage added (from 11 to 12) for improved efficiency and higher  pressure ratio (from 17:1 up to 19:1).

Extended maintenance plan

The NovaLT12 is designed to reach 35,000 hours mean time between maintenance (MTBM) without boroscopic inspections, and targeting 24-hour engine swap. Real-time condition monitoring anticipates and helps prevent problems. If problems do occur, 24/7 product support service is available.

No seasonal DLN tuning required

DLN tuning is required and performed only during commissioning (90% shorter than traditional system), and every four years thereafter via remote connection with our RM&D Centers.
