Repower with

GE's aeroderivative gas turbine technology

Our proficiency in gas turbine replacement and flange-to-flange (including plant integration) solutions for aeroderivative (aero), industrial, and heavy-duty gas turbines from different OEMs–including Siemens, Westinghouse, Pratt & Whitney or Rolls-Royce–will position your plant to be competitive in the future.

Why repower

Replacement gas turbines that fit into your infrastructure

Repowering is a beneficial solution for plant operators looking to reduce both upfront and operating costs, as well as emissions. Replacement gas turbines from GE allow your plant to achieve higher output and efficiency, which leads to lower $/kWh, and these newer gas turbines will help keep your plant more environmentally compliant.

Improved economics from repowering your gas turbine

Repowering your turbine assets with aeroderivative technology

With their origins from our fabled aviation technology, GE’s aeroderivative gas turbine portfolio features highly flexible and mobile technologies for use in a wide variety of applications. Our aeros are trusted and proven the world over and have a wide range of characteristics that make them a great choice for energy providers.
