Power plant flexibilization in Manaus (Brazil)


While MTU Power was retrofitting an LM6000 industrial gas turbine at its facility in Berlin-Brandenburg, the package team had the task of adapting the package to suit the needs of the new turbine. Work included building and attaching the water injection pump, new diffuser, integrating new control and management systems as well as laying new foundations and adapting ducts and cables to new switching boxes for the new signal systems.

Requirements and challenges

  • Increased power output
  • Guaranteed power supply
  • Efficiency improvement
  • Lower emissions
  • Reliable grid stability


Solution and scope of supply

  • Upgrade water injection system  for NOx reduction
  • Performance upgrade (PAàPC)
  • New monitoring and control units
  • Piping and wiring


Results and benefits

  • Nitrogen oxide reduction to 25 ppm
  • Power augmentation up to 10%
  • 2-3% higher efficiency
  • Short payback time
  • Higher flexibility and availability
  • Lower lifecycle costs
  • Extended lifetime
  • Fleet harmonization
