Proven flexibility, technology and performance

Meet the LM2500 family of aeroderivative gas turbines

Introducing the LM2500XPRESS: Modularity, reimagined

With up to 95% assembly in the factory, the LM2500XPRESS was created for speed and simplicity. The LM2500XPRESS comes pre-packaged in 10 simplified modules for easy install and features 25 electrical interconnects vs. 130+ for a traditional plant, as well as minimal mechanical interconnects. Module systems flushing is completed at the factory, so customers don’t need to flush on-site. For customers who need power in days, not weeks, the LM2500XPRESS can be installed in about 13 days by 20 people.

The LM2500: Powerful and customizable

The LM2500’s high efficiency helps reduce operating costs, plant emissions, and reliance on the local grid. With its dual fuel capability, including singular annular combustor (SAC) or GE’s latest dual fuel dry low emissions (DLE) technology, the LM2500 delivers performance with low emissions in a variety of situations and water availability scenarios. It features high reliability with control system redundancy, along with multiple options for configuration, making it a great choice for customers who need a more tailored power generation solution. The LM2500’s cycling capability allows multiple daily starts and stops, providing a strong solution for grids with penetration of renewable generation. Its open configuration allows for faster accessibility, easier maintenance, and increased speed of engine removal/replacement.

Case studies

The LM2500 and Cove Power Station help stabilize Tobago’s grid

GE has inaugurated the first gas turbine for the island nation of Tobago, providing flexible and sustainable electricity to the country’s grid. Cove Power Plant provides the electricity equivalent of more than 28,000 households using the most reliable gas turbine in its class—the LM2500.

"The island of Tobago is poised for productive growth, and to fuel that growth it made sense to tender for an additional generator. Our GE LM2500 aeroderivative, with its small footprint and high level of reliability was chosen, and we look forward to its performance for years to come."

"As the sole distributor of electricity in Jamaica, we see the use of LNG as resulting in greater stability in the price of electricity for our customers. By replacing a 19-year old unit with GE's advanced aeroderivative technology, we’ll be able to deliver more efficient power to our people, our businesses, and our critical facilities."

From coal to gas

North America’s first LM2500XPRESS will help CSU transition to a cleaner, more competitive future

The challenges:
Colorado Springs Utilities was hoping to mitigate grid instability due to increasing renewable penetration. Their gas technology requirements included: Quick install, cost effective, dual fuels, fast start, and low turndown.

The solution:
6 LM2500XPRESS gas turbines with a CO catalyst, gas compressors and a black start diesel generator.

COD: Summer 2022

"

The LM2500XPRESS units were purchased to provide safe, affordable and reliable generation to support the increased use of renewable solar and wind power. These natural gas units will help us better integrate renewable energy sources, further reduce CO2 emissions and accelerate the retirement of the Martin Drake Power Plant.

Aram Benyamin

CEO of Colorado Springs Utilities

A world's first for GE and Germany

Introducing the LM2500XPRESS

The challenge:
An abundance of renewable power available in the northern region of Germany, but a lack of power being transmitted to the south.

The solution:
Increased grid stability throughout the country with 11 LM2500XPRESS gas turbines, generators and other equipment from GE.

COD: Late 2022
