GE (NYSE: GE) has signed agreement with Shanghai Caojing Cogeneration Co., Ltd. that include GE’s first contractual service agreement (CSA) extension in China.

Caojing power plant
Shanghai Electric Power Co., Ltd. owns both the Caojing power plant, which is the largest cogeneration plant in the city, and Shangdian Power Engineering.

The service agreements cover two GE 9FA 3-series gas turbines at Shanghai Caojing’s 790 MW combined-cycle power plant that supplies power and steam for the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park, one of the largest petrochemical bases in Asia.

The park sells additional electricity to local grid operators. The CSA extension covers maintenance for the next eight to 10 years and marks the first time a GE customer in China has extended a CSA for a second maintenance period.

GE’s DLN 2.6+ upgrades will enable the Caojing plant to operate at low NOx emissions levels of 10-15 parts per million (ppm), compared to current levels of 25 ppm.
