Robust architecture and operational flexibility

7E.03 gas turbine features and benefits

Whether providing raw horsepower to drive industrial and petrochemical processes or steady, reliable output for CHP operation, the 7E.03 gas turbine keeps your operation running.

Unmatched versatility for industrial applications

The 7E.03 gas turbine is a 60 Hz industry leader, including LNG and cogen applications, providing customers with enhanced steam/power balance.

GE’s 7E: A proven performer

The 7E is as powerful as it is flexible: its fast-start, fast-load time capability may deliver 75% load in less than 10 minutes.

Environmental and economic benefits

The 7E.03 gas turbine accommodates a full range of fuel alternatives while helping to deliver better efficiency and lower emissions than other technologies in its class.

The experience that matters

The 7E gas turbine’s medium-size architecture lends itself to flexibility in plant layout and fast, low-cost additions of incremental power. The 7E features the most experience among E-class machines available today, with more than 1 million starts. 40 U.S. states have one or more installed GE 7E gas turbines, providing a total capacity of more than 40 GW.

Additional features of the 7E.03 turbine

The 7E features state-of-the-art fuel handling equipment, multi-fuel combustion system options, and advanced gas path. Additionally, the 7E.03 gas turbine has an enhanced compressor with high-strength, corrosion-resistant material. Its multiple-fuel combustion system allows switching from one fuel to another while running under load, and three-stage gas turbine constructed of advanced materials improve high-temperature strength and increase inspection intervals (32,000 hours).

The exhaust energy profile and high mass flow of the 7E gas turbine can be used to enhance steam production in cogeneration applications. A tri- or dual-fuel capability for switching fuels, while running under load or during shutdown eliminates the need for water while reducing harmful emissions.
