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, it 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.

Customer stories

An easy decision

After 30+ years of operation, Penal Power Station’s gas turbines’ rotors and other components were nearing the end of their operational life. Faced with increasing maintenance costs, the Power Generation Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (PowerGen Ltd.) decided to replace its two existing 7E turbines in February 2017. Satisfied with three decades of GE performance, PowerGen Ltd. chose to replace the turbines with two new GE 7E gas turbine units, run on natural gas. It was the first flange-to-flange gas turbine replacement in the Latin America/Caribbean region for GE. The new turbines improved plant efficiency, and added 25 to 30 years of gas turbine life to the site.

Full steam ahead

Air Liquide’s gas production facility in La Porte, Texas, USA blends and packages pure industrial gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, and specialty gases. A long-term contract renewal prompted Air Liquide to invest in facility upgrades. Four GE 7E gas turbines at Air Liquide’s La Porte cogeneration facility were upgraded to increase production capacity and extended unit life. The redevelopment project positions Air Liquide to better serve the growing needs of its customers and provides additional steam capacity to sell to other customers in the region.
