600 Megawatts for Nevada Power

600 Megawatts for Nevada Power

The first two of twelve BRUSH DAX turbo generators for a 600 megawatt power project have been delivered to the Clark Station Generating Plant in Clark County, Nevada USA. These units will serve the peak power loads in the southern Nevada territory, which includes Las Vegas and adjoining communities.

Each 60MW BRUSH turbo generator will be driven by two Pratt and Whitney FT8® Gas Turbines in a double ended SWIFTPAC® configuration.

The first 400 megawatts are scheduled for start up prior to the summer peak of 2008 with the remaining 200 megawatts being brought on line soon thereafter. The BRUSH scope of supply to Pratt & Whitney for the Nevada Power project also included the BRUSH PRISMIC® model A32 excitation controllers and the generator lubrication system.  More than 150 generators are on order or have been supplied for FT8 electric power generation duty.

BRUSH DAX turbogenerators provide energy solutions for the Utility, Industrial, Marine, and Oil & Gas market sectors, with over 1600 units delivered to customers in more than 130 countries worldwide
