Newman 5 is a “Combined Cycle” unit comprised of three separate turbine–generator units.
Combined Cycle: 2 Gas Turbines and 1 Steam Turbine
How it works
The heated exhaust gases from the two gas turbines go to the Heat Recovery System Generator to make steam that will drive the steam turbine generator for the combined cycle mode. The new technology used in the Newman 5 unit will make it 35 percent more fuel efficient than existing units.
