Gas Turbine Generator
The MNES Gas Turbine Generator (GTG) offers an alternative to traditional diesel generators used in nuclear plants and acts as a backup power source. At a rated output of 4.5 MWe, the seismically qualified GTG boasts several advantages over diesel generators. First, the GTG does not require cooling water. Instead, the unit is air cooled, meaning the GTG can operate in emergency situations without relying on cooling water. With fewer moving parts and forced ignition, the starting reliability of the GTG is yet another improvement. The GTG provides significant improvement in plant emergency response.
