GE Vernova’s 6F gas turbines can be used in a variety of industrial applications, as two projects in China’s Greater Bay Area illustrate.

The challenge

China plans to achieve peak carbon emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060. To achieve these goals, the nation is committed to reducing the level of coal in its nationwide energy mix and expedite building high-efficiency combined cooling, heat, and power (CCHP) plants throughout the country.

The solution

A pair of projects—the Yangjiang High-Tech Zone Natural Gas CHP Project and the Yangjiang Yangxi Natural Gas Cogeneration Project—will install GE Vernova 6F.03 gas turbines at the heart of their plants, making both projects cornerstones to reducing Chinese carbon emissions.


The new plant is… expected to improve the energy system of the area and provide a leap forward in the access to natural gas, while helping to meet both power and heat demands from local enterprises.

One of the major tenets of China’s 14th Five-Year Plan paves the way for the elimination of coal as an energy source by the middle of the 21st century. To help achieve this goal, many Chinese companies have invested in technology designed to transition energy and heat production from coal to lower-carbon natural gas.

Two of these companies—Royal Golden Eagle Group (RGE) and Beijing Energy International Holding Co., Ltd. (BJEI)—are bringing GE Vernova’s 6F.03 gas turbines to separate projects in the city of Yangjiang, located in the Guangdong/Hong Kong/Macao Greater Bay Area.

RGE—a global integrated industrial group—is building a receiving terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG). Here, LNG is reverted to its gaseous state after being unloaded from tankers to be distributed throughout the province. The two turbines at this unit will support Yangjiang’s energy needs.

The turbine pair that BJEI—an energy investment company—ordered will go to its Yangjiang Yangxi Natural Gas Cogeneration plant. This combined cooling, heat, and power (CCHP) plant will supply up to 240 MW electricity to help accelerate construction of the Zhonshan Torch Industrial Transfer Park.

All four turbines are expected to be fully operational in early 2025.
