AGP upgrades options can improve output, efficiency, and reliability of your 7F.03 unit. The right package depends on goals, existing equipment, and operating budget.
For simple cycle .03 units, the AGP Peaker package can boost output by up to +5-7 MW, enabling reliable starts and responsive performance boosts as needed.
In combined cycle plants, AGP Flex can offer up to +8-10 MW and improve GT heat rate up to 1.3%.
AGP Tech helps advance capability for a 7F.03 unit up to +20 MW when paired with the DLN2.6+ combustor
AGP Peaker can improve output in simple cycle 7F.03 turbines by providing an economical means to integrate AGP sealing and coating technologies into .03 HGP hardware
AGP Flex is a partial AGP upgrade package for both simple and combined cycle 7F.03 turbines, with the option to migrate to full AGP over time.
Full AGP installation with AGP Tech and DLN2.6+ for can yield top performance from .03 turbines.
Your 7F.04 unit can improve output and reliability with an AGP Tech conversion upgrade.
Take advantage of your next planned AGP repair by leveraging AGP Tech conversion* technology to move your hardware to the next level. Many operators use AGP tech conversions to reduce CAPEX and add value to existing inventory.
GE can convert existing AGP standard hardware to a Tech configuration* by applying modifications and improved coatings during a planned repair cycle. When combined with new Tech S2B and S3B, the final configuration will be compatible with existing AGP Tech hardware.
Your 7F.05 unit can deliver its high level performance with an AGP Tech Conversion.
Take advantage of your next planned .05 AGP repair by leveraging AGP Tech conversion* technology to move your .05 hardware to the next level by raising GT output by up to 8MW when paired with DLN2.6+. Many operators use AGP tech conversions to reduce CAPEX and add value to existing inventory.
Along with the DLN2.6+, Stage 2 and 3 buckets must be replaced with new components. Other hardware can be converted during a planned repair cycle, including Stage 1 shroud, Stage 1 bucket, and Stage 1, 2, 3 Nozzles.
7F flared high output stage 0 compressor upgrade works with components that extend rotor life, for longer turbine service and increased output—in simple cycle and combined cycle operations.
Your plant could benefit from greater start agility: this controls solution helps achieve from 10-15 minute simple-cycle start times, less startup fuel use, reduced start emissions, and more.

Reducing start-up times and lowering emissions for Southern California Edison
The Southern California Edison-owned plant collaborated with GE to develop a package solution that will reduce its start-up times and lower emissions without using additional water. The combination of AGP, Dry Low NOx 2.6+ (DLN2.6+) combustion and OpFlex* software upgrades positioned Mountainview to help balance the region’s grid demands.
