Customer stories

Myanmar: Boosting power generation

content-tm2500-myanmar

Fast-growing Yangon needs more electricity urgently because demand outstrips supply in the peak season, resulting in power outages throughout the city. In 2017, GE deployed one TM2500 as one of the initiatives completed by the Yangon Regional Government to boost power generation capacity in Myanmar’s largest industrial, commercial, and public sector districts.

Algeria: Powering through the hot summer months

In 2012, Algeria faced a drastic need for more power, particularly during the hot summer months when there is close to 10% annual growth in electricity demand. To help meet this demand, GE delivered six TM2500 mobile gas turbine generators delivering 120 MW of power followed by another 24 units in 2013 that provided more than 480 MW of power. The units were commissioned, delivered and operational in time to meet the northern districts of M’Sila and Fkirina’s 2013 summer peak electricity demand. After the seasonal peaks, some of the units were deployed to other cities in the south of the country to serve as permanent power.

In 2014, Algeria received an additional 8 units to meet their peak needs for that year’s summer month season.

Ecuador: Bringing power back in time for Christmas

In 2009, Ecuador experienced its worst drought in 40 years. Coupled with the country’s dependence on hydropower generation, the drought set off a chain reaction, resulting in 30% of the country’s thermal power plants becoming non-operational, and daily power cuts in the country. After the country signed a contract with GE in November, things moved quickly. With the help of seven TM2500 gas turbines, the country was able to commission 160 MW of power in just 12 weeks. The first TM2500 brought Ecuadorian lights on by Christmas, and power cuts ended in January.

Egypt: Supporting rapid growth

With rapid economic growth and an expanding population, Egypt is a country in transition. Its desert climate necessitates a massive amount of power generation. In December 2014, GE and the Egyptian government took vital steps towards meeting the sharp increase in the country’s electricity demand. GE provided 20 TM2500 generator sets—totaling 500 MW of total power—and promised to install and commission all units within six months in order to meet 2015’s hot summer.

Angola: Creating a modern energy infrastructure

Angola is one of Africa’s richest countries in terms of natural resources, but still millions of people need access to electricity. The country is engaged in a priority program to create a modern energy infrastructure. Since 2010, GE has worked with the government of Angola to provide more than 20 TM2500 mobile gas turbine generators, creating more than 500 MW of onsite power in Angola’s cities, improving grid reliability and bridging the energy gap during construction of a long-cycle hydro plant.

Mexico: Lighting up Baja

Hurricane Odile hit Mexico’s Baja Peninsula in September 2014, and was one of the most destructive storms in the country’s history. But with the help of four TM2500s, GE was able to work together with Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) to get emergency power up and running in less than two weeks, helping the CFE restore power to full capacity for the thousands of people impacted by the hurricane.

Japan: Providing urgent power

On March 11, 2011, the world’s costliest natural disaster to date occurred when a 9.1 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Tohoku, Japan and initiated a tsunami with waves that reached 40.5 meters (133 ft) and traveled up to 10 km (6 miles) inland. Within 30 days of the disaster, GE had made more than 20 gas turbine units available for the region including 10 flexible-use TM2500 aeroderivative units which together could produce 250 MW for the region.

Yemen: Providing the first GE aeros in the country

Yemen struggles to maintain reliable power generation, even in its densely-populated areas as a result of the challenging period it experienced. Cities can lose electricity and water without notice—making day-to-day tasks nearly impossible. In 2017 GE supplied two TM2500s on the al-Hiswa fast power expansion project, making them the first GE aeroderivative gas turbines in Yemen. These turbines were brought up and running quickly, providing 60 MW of additional power just in time for 40°C temperatures during the fasting month of Ramadan.
