Maithon Gas Turbine Station (MGTS)

Contact Maithon


Maithon Gas Turbine Station was commissioned at Maithon in 1989. The station has an installed capacity of 82.5 MW with three units each of 27.5 MW capacity. The Gas Turbine Generator has been designed to operate as single unit system on intermittent cycle. These are of simple axial flow type having a single shaft connected to generator with reduction gearbox. The gas turbine is of self-contained modular form having the inherent advantage of quick start-up facility to meet system peak demand under adverse system conditions and also for black start after system failure. High speed diesel is used for starting and stopping the operation while Naptha is used for running the unit.
