Our history

Gas turbine rotor OEM expertise and experience

When it comes to rotor life management and extension, GE has the advantage. Our OEM knowledge, analysis of gas turbine rotor behavior, and site-specific operating conditions help us determine full residual part life capabilities. GE has the knowledge, history, and expertise to perform a full rotor life assessment, addressing all phases of the lifecycle—for today and tomorrow. 

Benefits

Gas turbine rotor OEM expertise and experience

For the 7F gas turbine there have been over 30 turbine rotor modifications, more than 10 compressor rotor enhancements, and more than 100 different blade changes since 1990. When it comes to addressing gas turbine rotor needs there are many different solutions, but GE has the knowledge, history, and expertise to perform a full rotor life assessment, addressing all phases of the lifecycle—for today and tomorrow.

Proven gas turbine rotor life management

Through years of fleet and engineering analysis, we have developed proprietary gas turbine rotor manufacturing processes that cannot be duplicated. As rotor assets have aged over the last few years, our customers have worked with us to replace more than 250 B and E turbine rotors and over 500 F turbine rotors. For the 7F gas turbine there have been more than 30 turbine rotor modifications, 10+ compressor rotor enhancements, and more than 100 different blade changes since 1990.
