At the heart of the new flexible system design is a General Electric LM6000 turbine generator. Though modified to produce mechanical torque as opposed to thrust, the engine is the same that you would find on large jet aircraft.

The turbine is coupled to a Deltak heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) which uses the exhaust heat from the LM6000, and some additional gas firing, to produce steam to power a steam turbine generator, which already exists as part of the current plant. The gas turbine can be run in simple cycle, with the HRSG, with an efficient operating range between approximately 21.5 and 43 megawatts. The gas turbine can be run in combined cycle, with the HRSG, to add approximately 22 megawatts of additional gas-produced electricity.
