Extending J-Series Leadership with the Air-Cooled M501JAC Gas Turbine
MHPS is revolutionizing power generation with the M501JAC, an enhanced J-Series air-cooled gas turbine. It offers an unmatched combination of improved efficiency, proven reliability and lower-cost electricity that sets a new standard for the industry.
In a combined cycle one-on-one configuration, the JAC produces 614 MW of power at a record-setting efficiency level exceeding 64 percent. Before its release, the JAC underwent more than 11,000 hours of commercial operation, also setting a record at 99.5 percent reliability.
The JAC incorporates more than 40 years of proven turbine design. It features an enhanced air-cooled combustor and advanced thermal barrier coating on the turbine blades. This gas turbine provides low levels of NOx, CO2, UHC and VOC emissions. Replacing older coal-fired turbine technology with the new JAC can cut CO2 emissions by nearly 70 percent.
The JAC joins MHPS’ J-Series fleet, which has exceeded 1,000,000 hours of documented commercial operation at 99.5 percent reliability. No other gas turbine on the market matches the J-Series’ performance. One-hundred J-Series turbines have been technically selected, and 43 are in commercial operation.
