The rugged 6B heavy-duty gas turbine is a popular choice for refineries, natural gas liquefaction power, CHP applications, and industrial power.
Its ability to operate in island mode makes the 6B an excellent solution for remote installations and extreme operating conditions far from the grid. And with more than 1,200 units installed since 1978, it has a record of dependability. The turbine can ramp to 20 MW in less than five seconds and accommodate non-standard fuels in cogeneration and industrial power generation operations. It features a 44 MW simple cycle output and greater than 51% combined cycle efficiency. Its standardized architecture and pre-assembled packaging allow for a delivery cycle of 10 months from contract signature to commercial operation.
GE’s 6F gas turbines offer the superior performance and flexibility typically associated with larger power plants.
The 6F packs a lot of power into a small package, offering durability and flexibility for harsh or remote power environments. Whether it be for 50 or 60 Hz, the 6F maintains leading efficiency and exhaust energy for combined cycle and CHP performance. The 6F offers segment-leading 32,000-hour combustion and hot gas path inspection intervals.
The robust 7E gas turbines operate in simple cycle, combined cycle, cogeneration and mechanical drive applications.
They operate on more than 50 different fuels and can deliver high efficiency and low emissions. The 7E is engineered with advanced materials for exceptional durability. It comes to full speed in a matter of minutes and helps delivers consistent power even in extreme environments. It also features a 91 MW simple cycle output and greater than 51% combined cycle efficiency.
The demands of today’s power generation industry are many, including low cost of electricity, dispatch volatility and high efficiency.
With more than 1,100 installed units producing ~175GW of power in 12 countries, GE’s 7F gas turbine is a proven performer in all these areas. Among its features, the 7F.05 offers an 11-minute startup to an 80% load, as well as turndown to 24% of turbine baseload within emissions compliance. It can accommodate a wide range of fuels. Building on a 25-year legacy of F-class operation, the 7F.04 supports a broad range of applications and offers the widest fuel flexibility in its class.
With over 450 units deployed to more than 40 countries, GE has the largest operating and most experienced OEM F-class fleet in the world.
Our 9F gas turbine help deliver consistent performance and accommodates a diverse range of fuels, making it ideal for a variety of combined cycle and CHP applications. The simple and robust air-cooled architecture is created for longer parts durability and extended service inspection intervals, making the 9F a great choice for life-cycle value.
From desert climates, to the tropics, to the arctic cold, the rugged 9E.03 heavy-duty gas turbine provides essential power and performs in a vast number of duty cycles and applications.
9E turbines can use more than 52 types of fuel—almost the entire fuel spectrum—and can even switch fuels while running under full load. With order to operation demonstrated in as few as six months, and fast-start and load capabilities, the 9E has quick installation and operational flexibility. The 9E.04 has multiple features that help reduce fuel costs and increase revenue, such as a 145 MW output and 37% simple-cycle efficiency.
GE’s 7HA high efficiency, air cooled gas turbine is an industry leader among advanced class gas turbine offerings and is available in three models—the 7HA.01 at 290 MW, the 7HA.02 at 384 MW, and the7HA.03 at 430 MW.
The economies of scale created by the 7HA gas turbine, combined with its more than 64% combined-cycle efficiency, enables the most cost-effective conversion of fuel to electricity to help power plant operators help meet increasingly dynamic power demands. The 7HA suite of gas turbines’ flexibility enables increased dispatch and ancillary revenue, while enhanced fuel flexibility accommodates a wide range of gaseous fuels (shale gas, high ethane, H2) and liquid fuels (#2 diesel, crude oils). The 7HA gas turbine ramps up to full load in 10 minutes and features a novel configuration that supports simplified installation and maintenance.
With unprecedented operational flexibility, robust construction and long operation intervals, the GT13E2 can be used in many different applications, while helping to meet a very broad range of environment and operating conditions.
With more than 14 million operating hours and a wide range of environmental and operational conditions, the GT13E2 has the versatility to fit nearly every possible power plant application. Available through two complementary models, the GT13E2 is yet again setting higher performance standards for E-class gas turbines.
