Four type ABB GT13E2 gas turbines are in operation in Germany. A nearly identical mounting concept of the KA-13E2-2 combined-cycle plant comprising two gas turbines and a steam turbine was applied by contractors ABB, Mannheim, for Bewag in Berlin in 1996 and for RWE in Ludwigshafen/BASF in 1997. Routine inspections and operational audits of all four gas turbines were scheduled for 2002 in accordance with their respective number of operating hours.
