Spirit™ 16 – Gas Turbine Power Generation System


Spirit 16 Overview:

CAI Spirit™ 16 MW Power Generation Systems utilize the highly efficient single shaft Baker Hughes NovaLT™16 gas turbine generating 16.9 MW at ISO conditions (59°F/15°C, sea level, 60% relative humidity). The unit MW size fits well into CAI’s Spirit line of modular, skid-mounted industrial gas turbine-based power generation systems and is a popular choice of clients seeking reliable, 24/7 power.

Spirit™16 is capable of utilizing 100% hydrogen fuel as well as blending hydrogen and natural gas to generate power making it zero carbon / low carbon emission system, the preferred choice of industries today.

CAI Spirit 16 – Proven Performance

This package is available in 50 Hz and 60 Hz cycles. It is scalable to meet increases in power demand and multiple units can be synchronized to operate per customer power demand requirement.

CAI Spirit 16 can be integrated with Heat Recovery Steam Generation (HRSG) and chillers for Combined Heat and Power applications and Combined Heating, Cooling & Power tri-generation applications as well as combined cycle for additional electricity generation.

The NovaLT™16 gas turbine provides up to 36% electrical efficiency, up to 85% in combined heat and power (CHP), and it delivers high performance over a wide range of operations.

Emissions are among the lowest with NOx at 15 ppm

We also offer:

Combined Cycle: Gas turbine plus steam turbine applications with the following benefits:

  • Combined Cycle Solutions have high Electrical Efficiencies
  • High Flexibility in operation (Possibility to operate Gas Turbines in part load or just Steam Cycle if the Gas Turbines are shut down)
  • Combined Cycle solutions are reliable
  • Reduced NOx and CO2 Emissions
  • Short Payback time < 10 years
