Smaller CC plants below 80 MW offer economic solutions in cogeneration to industrial parks in the South East Asian power market which is typically dominated by large gas turbines and power plants. For the Industrial Power CO-GEN project, the single shaft power train arrangement for combined cycle/cogeneration is the first GT8C application of reference plant concepts.

Commercial operation will commence in September 1997 with first components to be shipped in October 1996. This paper describes the GT8C single shaft combined cycle arrangement applied to industrial power cogeneration as well as some specifics of the Industrial Power Co. Ltd. project (IP CO-GEN project) at Eastern Industrial Estate, Map Ta Phut, Thailand related to plant layout, operating and control philosophy.
