GE’s family of heavy-duty simple and combined cycle gas turbines has found a home across India. In fact, these units are already generating 16 GW of power for the country’s consumers.
Electric authorities and independent power producers are using gas turbines to light homes and businesses. Industrial customers are using them to generate power for manufacturing chemicals, syngas, fertilizer, automobiles, and refined products.
Our simple and combined cycle gas turbines can output 5-500 MW of power with low emissions and high efficiency over a wide operating range. The GE product line also offers flexibility in fuel sources and operations. It is characteristics like these that Indian customers are looking for.
