GPB17/17D (1.7MW Class)


Ideal for reliable on-site base load power generation requiring from 1200 kW to 1700 kW for co-generation applications.
The GPB17/17D is based on Kawasaki's proven M1A heavy duty single combustor gas turbine with over 20 years of commercial experience and proven reliability.  At 1690 kW (ISO), it is ideal for cogeneration applications in offshore oil platforms, data centers, industrial process plant applications, hospitals, universities / colleges, prisons, district energy systems, life-science and bio-science facilities, and other facilities with thermal and electrical loads.  The Kawasaki Industrial Gas Turbine Generator Unit provides the benefit of a large thermal capability to provide a co-generation system efficiency approaching 80% and a long service life of 32,000 EOH between overhauls.


A Closer Look

The GPB17D is suited for geographic areas requiring emissions control, with NOx emissions of 25 ppm (O2=15%) and CO emissions of 50 ppm (O2=15%) from 70-100% load, using Kawasaki's multiple nozzle DLE (Dry Low Emissions) fuel injection combustion system.
