The contract covers works on Shenzhen Energy Group’s Guangming combined-cycle power plant.

GE will supply three 9HA.01 heavy-duty gas turbines for the power plant, which is located in the Shenzhen Guangming district of China’s Guangdong province.

The power plant will generate up to 2GW of electricity for the province, which has a population of around 126 million.

GE Gas Power China Utility Sales general manager Ma Jun said: “Gas can play a significant role in China’s energy future due to its sustainability, flexibility, low capital costs, ability to integrate with carbon capture systems, and rapid deployment capabilities.

“Natural gas-fired generators have the lowest CO₂ emissions of all fossil power generation fuels—and are ideal for countries, including China, where the need to transition from coal at scale while retaining the reliability of supply is paramount.”

The plant’s first fleet is scheduled to become operational by the end of next year and support the retirement of the Guangdong Shajiao coal-fired power plant, which is due to be shut down in 2025.

Harbin Electric will offer steam turbines and generators for the facility via its General Harbin Electric Gas Turbine (Qinhuangdao) joint venture, which the company created with GE in 2019.

A Shenzhen Energy Group representative said: “We’re committed to supplying the most advanced power generation in alignment with China’s national emissions reduction goals and commitment to building a lower-carbon, safer and more efficient energy system.

“GE and Harbin Electric will provide us with the highest standard of quality and reliability for our Guangming power plant.”

In December last year, GE Gas Power partnered with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) to develop a roadmap for decarbonising power generation in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
