Unmatched flexibility: 7F.04 and 7F.05

In terms of fuel flexibility, the 7F.04 gas turbine is the only turbine in its class to burn Arabian Super Light (ASL), 15% C2, +20/-10% Modified Wobbe Index (MWI), and 5% hydrogen.

A simple-cycle 7F.05 gas turbine can reliably produce 200 MW within 10 minutes, and can reach full load in under 11 minutes. A 7F.05 can also balance renewables by load-following at 40 MW/min ramp rates while maintaining emissions compliance.

Enhancing customer value

The 7F.05’s improved maintenance practices, combined with features like field removal compressor airfoils means it can reduce replacement time, downtime, and costs.

The 7F.04 features an enhanced compressor and hot gas path cooling and sealing technologies, improving both performance and durability.

Customer stories

Helping to decarbonize Alberta—in some wild weather

GE Gas Power and Maxim Power worked together to install and upgrade a 7F gas turbine in a year-round project that helped support Canada’s coal-to-gas transition. For this project, GE provided relocation support with a DLN2.6+ upgrade and secured a contractual services agreement for the GE 7F.05 gas turbine.
