Benefits of the LM6000PC uprate

More power, better life, more flexibility

GE’s LM6000PC uprate will produce the same higher firing temperatures, higher torque, and rad-rad swirlers of the LM6000PG. By upgrading a PC turbine to a PG turbine that operates at 3,600 RPM instead of the normal 3,930 RPM of the PG, customers can benefit from some PG improvements.

What can upgrading do for you?

  • More power: Operate LM6000PC uprate with SPRINT* and increase output nominally 6% more than current LM6000PC SPRINT levels—54.5 MW output—simple cycle (T2 = 50 oF)
  • Water savings: Eliminate SPRINT water and continue to exceed existing PC SPRINT output
  • Extended life: Expected increase in the maintenance intervals of the combustor, hot section, and major overhaul compared to current LM6000PC
  • Convert an LM6000PC engine to an LM6000PG engine, either by exchanging the existing engine or modifying selected components
  • No reduction gearbox needed in 60Hz segment: LP speed = 3,600 RPM instead of the 3,930 RPM on standard LM6000PG packages
  • Conversion kit configured to maintain same engine and package footprint
  • Same NOx and CO emissions
