Powering Saudi Arabia forward

Best-in-class decarbonization solutions

Saudi Arabia is experiencing a surge in both GDP growth and energy production needs. At the same time, the region’s Saudi Vision 2030 plan calls for a 35% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a balanced energy mix of 50% renewable resources and 50% natural gas—with a 2060 pledge for net zero.

GE is committed to helping meet these goals with hydrogen-ready gas turbines and gas turbine upgrades that can support this energy mix—as well as lower emissions even further through hydrogen and carbon capture solutions. GE has the latest hydrogen-capable gas turbine technologies to help power Saudi Arabia’s energy needs while reducing emissions to help meet the region’s decarbonization goals. 

The latest technology

Solutions for Saudi Arabia

  • Aeroderivative gas turbines
  • H-class gas turbines
  • Services for 7E gas turbines

Featuring industry-leading performance, GE’s aeroderivative gas turbines can help address the challenges of the energy trilemma—affordability, availability, and sustainability—by operating concurrently with both conventional and renewable energy. With the ability to reach full power in five minutes, their plug-and-play nature provides quick, flexible, efficient power where it is needed. GE’s aeroderivative gas turbines are also fuel flexible, with the ability to operate on an 85/15 hydrogen/natural gas blend—helping pave the way for Saudi Arabia’s hydrogen-powered energy future.

Powering Tanzania

See how GE’s LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbines are helping the Songas power plant in Tanzania provide power when hydro is scarce.

We introduced our H-class gas turbine technology to the industry more than 25 years ago. Our HA technology has accumulated more than 1.6 million operating hours (as of November 2022) at more than 30 customer sites globally, and 2/3 of our HA operating fleet has 16K+ operating hours. Today, GE’s H-class gas turbine portfolio has the capability to burn up to 50% by volume of hydrogen when blended with natural gas, with a path to 100% hydrogen.

7HA gas turbines are up to 50% hydrogen (H2) capable with a technology pathway to 100%. The 7HA.03 gas turbine is the most efficient 60Hz gas turbine in the world. This latest technology features more than 64% combined-cycle efficiency, higher than any other competing technology available today. 

With the 7HA gas turbine, you will benefit from:

  • Higher combined-cycle efficiency
  • Up to 50% hydrogen capable
  • Operational flexibility—operating with natural gas or liquids
  • Industry-leading reliability and availability
  • Up to 430 MW of additional power

Improving your performance

With more renewable energy sources being added to the grid, it’s more business-critical than ever that you 7E plant can operate in new and flexible ways to reduce emissions and stay competitive. GE has a suite of upgrades to help expand your operational flexibility, generate low-cost peak MWs, increase hours and starts, and enable your gas turbine to run on tri-fuels.


More power, less emissions

Our upgrade solutions can boost the reliability and flexibility of your gas turbines while reducing their environmental footprint—to help meet or exceed current emissions regulations.

Renewables integration

Faster starts, lower costs and greater fuel flexibility

If your power plant’s 7E gas turbines are running as peaker units for more seasonal use when grid demand is high, you need solutions to help increase your output and heat rate, achieve faster starts, extend maintenance intervals to reduce your O&M costs, and make your gas turbines more fuel flexible to help integrate intermittent renewable power. Browse our offerings here.

Uninterrupted power

Increase your reliability, availability, efficiency and output

If your power plant’s 7E gas turbines are running all the time, you need them to be reliable, available, and efficient with the highest possible output. GE Gas Power has a wide range of 7E gas turbine upgrades that will help improve your overall combustion capability. Browse our offerings here.

White paper

Capturing flared gas for use in GE Vernova’s aeroderivative gas turbines

Gas-to-power technologies using associated gas for fuel can help greatly reduce gas flaring—a significant contributor to global warming. Typically, technology choice for such projects is driven by fuel quality, emissions standards, and economies of scale. With their high power density, GE Vernova’s efficient and reliable aeroderivative gas turbines are especially well suited as gas-to-power solutions, providing fuel flexibility while meeting stringent emission codes.
