The new FT4000 SWIFTPAC gas turbine generator package offered by PWPS produces the highest output of any aero-derivative engine while maintaining high efficiency. As a next-generation product, the FT4000 SWIFTPAC unit builds on over fifty years of aero-derivative experience and more than 2,000 industrial gas turbines installed worldwide. With a modular design that includes proven features of the successful FT8 SWIFTPAC power plants, the FT4000 engine, powered by a Pratt & Whitney PW4000 derivative gas generator, offers a 60 to 120 MW package of reliable peaking and base-load power in a compact footprint. The FT4000 engine is designed for simple-cycle, combined-cycle, or cogeneration applications. The free-turbine design of the system allows for flexible power plant operation down to 25 percent of full load, synchronous condensing operation without a clutch, and spinning reserve capacity.
The proven SWIFTPAC design is a cost-effective solution for flexible, high-power density needs across the globe. "PWPS designed the FT4000 SWIFTPAC to satisfy the growing demand for reliable and efficient gas power plants around the world," said Peter Christman, president of PWPS. "We've had an excellent reception from our current and prospective customers for the FT4000 SWIFTPAC, and the continued traction we are seeing with this product demonstrates the confidence of the market in this world-class application."
The unit will be delivered in 2014 with commercial operation in May 2015.
Also, another noteworthy achievement occurred in May of this year when PWPS and MHI celebrated a successful first year since MHI acquired PWPS in 2013. "The anniversary was a significant milestone for both companies," said Yasuo Nagashima, vice president of PWPS. "The joining of our companies allows MHI to offer a complete line of gas turbines including both aero-derivatives and heavy-frame units. This allows us to be a one-stop shop for most power producers' requirements."

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
