What can an AGP upgrade do for your 9E gas turbine?

GE’s AGP upgrade increases output and reduces heat rate in both simple cycle and combined-cycle applications and increases exhaust energy for cogeneration or combined-cycle applications, when compared to prior 9E gas turbine technology. The AGP benefits of this upgrade translate to lower fuel costs and improved revenues for 9E gas turbine customers.

As a result of GE’s AGP 9E upgrade, customers can expect an annual savings from fuel expenses of US $1,180,000 and additional annual revenue from power generation of US $395,000.*
