The right solution for Belgium’s power needs

Belgium is expected to need an additional 3.9 GW of new power capacity over the next few years due to a planned phase-out of all nuclear power capacity in the country by 2025. GE has the solution that will meet Belgium’s energy needs: The 9HA.02 gas turbine. Reliable, proven and cost-effective, this powerful gas turbine can help keep the lights on and businesses running for the people of Belgium for many years to come.


Introducing the
9HA.02 gas turbine

With Belgium’s nuclear phase-out and power auctions coming up in October 2021, it’s time to start thinking about the most important consideration in the bidding process: The cost per KwH of electricity generated per year. Highly reliable and efficient to run, the 9HA.02 gas turbine can deliver the lowest cost per KwH as compared to other gas turbine technologies. In fact, the 9HA.02 can deliver more than 64% net efficiency in combined-cycle operation and emits only 15ppm NOx.


With the 9HA.02 gas turbine fleet, you will benefit from:

Save time and money, reduce risk

The highly efficient, air-cooled 9HA.02 gas turbine is an industry leader in the H-class space, delivering exceptionally low lifecycle costs per megawatt.

Installing a gas turbine in your plant shouldn’t involve any unknowns. Across our HA fleet, each original turbine is put through a rigorous full-speed, full-load (FSFL) validation test at our Greenville, South Carolina facility. This $200 million investment allows us to push the units beyond real-world conditions—running the turbines at 110% of their rated speeds at load, and replicating the harshest conditions, from the Arabian desert to the mountains of Colorado—all to ensure that our customers have security of supply for their end users.



Our H-class gas turbines enable the most cost-effective conversion of fuel to electricity to help utilities meet increasing power demands while saving fuel and operating costs and meeting local emissions requirements. Our HA gas turbines have earned two world records for efficiency—one for powering the world’s most efficient combined-cycle power plant for EDF in Bouchain, France (achieving 62.22% efficiency on a net combined-cycle basis on a 50 Hz grid), and a second world record for achieving 63.08% gross efficiency on a 60 Hz grid at the Nishi-Nagoya Power Station in Japan.

GE introduced the first HA-class gas turbine 10 years ago, and since then our engineering teams have been making continuous performance enhancements. Now the fastest-growing gas turbines in its class, our HA fleet of 44 commercial units has accumulated more than 650,000 operating hours.  In total, more than 45 customers have ordered more than 100 gas turbines.  Learn more about the benefits of the HA gas turbine fleet here.




GE’s HA gas turbine auxiliary systems are pre-configured, factory-assembled and tested modules engineered to reduce field connections, piping, and valves. This translates to a simpler, faster installation that requires less labor and reduces field schedule and installation quality risks while improving overall installation times—up to 25% quicker compared to GE F-class gas turbine enclosures. This modular configuration also makes it easier for technicians to perform any needed maintenance over the gas turbine’s lifecycle.

CTCI Corporation (CTCI) and Southern Power Generation Sdn Bhd (SPG): Pasir Gudang, Johor,  Malaysia

 “We have a longstanding relationship with GE and we trust its HA technology will help us meet the increasing power demand and contribute to long-term energy security needs in Malaysia” said Dato’ Haji Nor Azman bin Mufti, Chairman of SPG.  “We are proud to see how GE has adapted with hard work and efficiency to achieve the start of their first ever commercial operation for the 9HA.02 gas turbines despite the COVID-19 pandemic without compromising on health and safety.”


Global expertise in the use of hydrogen

GE is the world leader in the application of fuels containing hydrogen in gas turbines. Over the last 30 years, our turbines have logged more than 8 million operating hours running on hydrogen with concentrations ranging from 5% to 95% (by volume). This experience has helped GE become one of the world leaders in the application of fuels containing hydrogen in gas turbines.

We have hosted several customer webinars on the topic of decarbonization and the use of hydrogen in gas turbines. Browse these webinars below—now available on demand—to learn more from our GE and other industry experts.

GE’s 9HA gas turbine projects around the world

GE’s HA gas turbine technology is the technology of choice for many of the world’s power providers. We currently have 39 HA projects under way across the globe: Learn more about some of them here. 

FRANCE - Bouchain

In 2016, GE and French partner EDF unveiled the world’s most efficient combined-cycle power plant, powered by GE’s 9HA.01 gas turbine. With the ability to produce more than 600 MW of electricity with a 62.22% efficiency rating, this new gas turbine set a world record for efficiency and set the stage for the newest 9HA gas turbine model—the 9HA.02.

GREECE - Agios Nikolaos

Marking the 100th order for GE’s HA gas turbines, our 9HA.02 gas turbine will soon be powering Agios Nikolaos, one of the largest natural gas-fired combined-cycle power plants in Europe. Expected to begin operations toward the end of 2021, the Agios Nikolaos power plant will produce 826 MW of power and a thermal efficiency of more than 63%, making it one of Europe’s most efficient power plants as well.

POLAND - Dolna Odra

PGE has ordered two of GE’s high-efficiency, lower emission 9HA.01 gas turbines to power its Dolna Odra power plant in Poland. When operational in 2023, the two turbines, as well as two steam turbines and HRSGs, will generate up to 1.4 GW of power—enough electricity to power the equivalent of 1 million Polish households. They will also help stabilize the regional grid, which relies on offshore and onshore wind farms, and is expected to reduce C)2 emissions by about 2-3 million tons per year.

ISRAEL - Orot Rabin

Israel Electric Corporation has ordered a second GE 9HA.01 gas turbine for its Orot Rabin combined-cycle power plant as part of the country’s strategy of converting the existing plant from coal to high-efficiency gas-fired generation. GE will also supply a steam turbine generator, heat recovery steam generator and balance of plant equipment, in addition to a 15-year service agreement. The new gas turbine is expected be in operation in 2023.

MALAYSIA - Track 4, Pasir Gudang (Johor Malaysia)

Owned by Southern Power Generation Sdn Bhd., this 1440 MW combined-cycle power plant began commercial operation in February 2021 and is home to Malaysia’s first GE 9HA.02 gas turbines. The heart of the plant is two generating blocks, each equipped with a 9HA.02 gas turbine, generator and once-through heat recovery steam generator. Overall plant performance is monitored and enhanced with GE’s Predix* asset performance management (APM) software and Fleet360* platform of gas plant solutions.

Track 4A was recently declared POWER Magazine’s 2021 Power Plant of the Year.

INDONESIA - Tambak Lorok (Semarang, Central Java)

An initiative under the government’s plans of achieving 35,000 MW capacity, the 780 MW combined-cycle Tambak Lorok power plant will house Indonesia’s first 9HA gas turbine—as well as a GE generator, D650 steam turbine, heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and balance of plant equipment. Expected to begin operations in 2021, the plant will provide enough power to supply the equivalent of up to 5 million homes and help ensure more reliable and affordable electricity for the Java-Bali grid.

INDONESIA - Jawa One (Cilamaya)

Part of the Indonesian government’s 35 GW electrification initiative to power close to 11 million homes throughout the country, the 1750 MW Jawa One combined-cycle power plant is due to begin operations in 2021 and will be powered by two units of GE’s 571 MW 9HA.02 gas turbines and two units of the 309 MW D652 steam turbine. The plant will also be serviced by GE as part of a 25+ multi-year agreement that includes APM digital solutions, commissioning and installation, parts, field and repair services.

THAILAND - EGAT Bangpakong (Bangkok)

Thailand's largest gas-fired power plant, this 1,400 MW combined-cycle facility is owned and operated by the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand and will be equipped with 2 of GE's 9HA gas turbine. Currently planned for completion in 2020, the plant is expected to deliver more than 1,400 MW to the national grid – enough electricity to supply the equivalent of up to 2 million average Thai homes and will help Thailand achieve its goal of securing 57,460 MW of power generation capacity by 2036.
