MS5002C-D Gas Turbines
The MS5002 is a gas turbine specifically designed for mechanical drive applications such as gas
boosting, gas injection/re-injection, oil & gas pipelines, LNG plants and gas storage. It has a broad
operating speed range to meet the operating requirements of the most common driven equipment
(centrifugal compressors and pumps) as well as the ability to burn a large variety of gaseous and
liquid fuels. The MS5002 gas turbine was introduced in the market in the 1970s and has been
updated and up-rated over the years to meet the industry demand for increased output. Presently
two versions are available:
The MS5002 two-shaft, heavy-duty gas turbine is designed for high operating efficiency over a wide
range of speed and load. The simple design and extreme robustness of the MS5002 allow complete
maintenance to be performed on site without the need for specialized tooling or service shop
assistance. The main features of its design are:
- High pressure shaft consisting of a 16-stage (17 for MS5002D), axial-flow compressor and a
single-stage, high energy turbine. The first stage nozzles are air cooled and the second stage
nozzles are of the variable angle type.
- Low pressure shaft is a single stage, high energy turbine.
- Twelve combustion chambers are contained within a single wrapper. A wide range of gaseous
and liquid fuels can be burned. A DLN Combustion System is also available.
- A centralized lube oil system supplies clean, cooled, pressurized oil to lubricate the gas turbine
and the driven equipment including the oil required for any compressor seals.
As a consequence of the extremely favorable operating, maintenance and economic characteristics
of the MS5002 nearly 500 units (more than 300 manufactured by GE Energy) have been installed
world-wide in all types of environments (arctic, desert, off-shore etc.) always demonstrating ease of
operation and very high reliability and availability.
