Gas Turbines

Gas turbines for power generation and mechanical drive

The gas turbine portfolio from MAN Diesel & Turbo consists of the THM gas turbines, which cover a 9 to 13 MW range and the newly developed MGT gas turbines with power outputs of up to 7 MW for both power generation, as well as mechanical drive applications.

  • THM Gas Turbine Family
  • MGT6100/MGT6200

The THM 1304 heavy-duty gas turbine family offers an extremely long life with a high level of reliability and availability. The modular design facilitates easy installation and maintenance features to realize an optimized cost-to-benefit ratio over the entire lifecycle. The THM gas turbine family is available for mechanical drive applications including compressor drives for pipeline and process applications as well as pump drives for oil pipelines and water injection. In addition, various power generation applications are covered including cogeneration, auxiliary power, blackstart and peaking. Both onshore and offshore requirements are perfectly met.
Features & Benefits:

  • Twin shaft heavy duty modular design for easy and rapid installation
  • High reliability and availability
  • DLE Combustion System for low NOx and CO exhaust emissions
  • Fuel Flexibility and special fuels (e.g. methanol, diesel, kerosene)

In 2011, MAN Diesel & Turbo launched a new industrial gas turbine. For mechanical drive applications the twin shaft design has primarily been developed (MGT6200) while the single shaft turbine will be employed purely in the power generation industry (MGT6100). Decades of industrial gas turbine experience and profound application knowledge have led to a new evolution in small industrial gas turbines. The high efficiency, a comprehensive service concept as well as the compact package design are only a few examples of the MAN Diesel & Turbo gas turbine distinguished features.
Features & Benefits:

  • State-of-the-art combustion system
  • High turbine efficiency for minimized emissions and operation cost
  • Suitable for CHP/cogeneration and combined cycle applications
