Combustion tests of methanol were conducted on a 26-MW gas turbine for a period of 523 total hours. The methanol fueled gas turbine was operated in tandem with an identical gas turbine fueled with distillate (Jet A). Emissions and performance data were recorded and hot section inspections were carried out on both machines periodically during the test program. A comparison of data recorded during the test program clearly indicates that methanol is a superior fuel for gas turbines.
