Spirit™ 3.5 – Gas Turbine Power Generation System –
Packaged Power Plant



CAI’s Spirit™ 3.5 MW Gas Turbine Power Generation System is modular power on the go! These units are a complete, packaged power systems that incorporate the latest in proven design technology to achieve maximum reliability and extended time between overhauls making them ideal for operation in harsh and remote environments.

Its components include turbine, industry proven gearbox, generator and auxiliary systems with state-of-the-art control and monitoring capabilities. The unique combination of hardware in 1 MW power plant results in excellent heat recovery performance of a turbine at a cost that is competitive with conventional reciprocating engine generating systems. Maintenance downtime is minimal.

This containerized, single unit module is used to produce electricity in island mode or to generate power for connecting to the grid in a 24/7 application. Its rugged and compact design offers robust performance with operational energy savings to keep customer mission-critical facilities functioning without interruption.


CAI Spirit™ 3.5 can be used for:

  • Anywhere where there is a need for intermittent or continuous power
  • Simple, combined, or co-generation applications
  • Resiliency solution that builds upon the infrastructure and is expandable
  • Industries that have a need for power and thermal energy.
  • Fast-track deployment of generation capability to meet emergency or urgent electricity needs
  • Providing on-site electricity generation for remote locations such as mines, rural areas, and offshore oil and gas drilling platforms
  • Power generation in developing regions with weak or unstable grids
  • “Plug-n-Play” packaging enables easy transportation and reduces installation time and costs
  • Installing multiple smaller units provides added flexibility and higher availability of power during maintenance and overhauls
