Sega has completed numerous projects that include combustion turbines at either a peaking plant or combined-cycle plant.
Over the last 10 or more years, we have seen the steady increase in popularity of combustion turbines. The expense of new coal unit construction combined with tentative financial lending practices make the smaller combustion turbine units more attractive. As deregulation evolved, independent power producers could utilize combustion turbines to deliver and sell power in a relatively short amount of time.
A phased construction approach is also popular. It is relatively common for the first phase of a large unit to include the combustion turbine so that it can be completed and begin producing revenue. Sometime later, an HRSG, steam turbine, and balance-of-plant equipment are added. This phased approach helps with capital budgets and lessens early commitment risk.
