The Soldotna Combustion Turbine provides a backup source of power with a 48 megawatt LM 6000 turbine.
- Maximum output of 42 to 47 megawatts
- The turbine’s aeroderivative design enables it to reach full output in a short time. It can reach maximum output of 42 to 47 megawatts in less than 15 minutes.
- The Dry Low Emissions (DLE) combustion system eliminates the need for water injection to meet emissions requirements. This saves the Cooperative the cost of treating water that would otherwise be needed to control emissions.
- FUN FACT: At 47 megawatts, the turbine produces the equivalent of 63,000 horsepower.
