IMPROVED ECONOMICS FROM REPOWERING YOUR GAS TURBINE

Repowering your turbine assets with aeroderivative technology

Regardless of your original equipment manufacturer (OEM), GE has the latest aeroderivative gas turbine repowering technology to make your units more economical. Our experience with gas turbine retrofit and flange-to-flange solutions for aero, industrial, and heavy-duty gas turbines from different turbine OEMs—including Siemens, Westinghouse, Pratt & Whitney, and Rolls-Royce—can position your plant to be more competitive.

technology-competitiveness TECHNOLOGY COMPETITIVENESS

GE’s LM technology is well-proven and offers significant efficiency benefits on different power bands of operation. Whether you are running your unit as baseload in a CHP application or fluctuating between different loads, aeroderivative gas turbine repowering can provide the flexibility you need. Repowering can also significantly improve plant output and emission profiles.

Thanks to the inherent modularity of aeroderivative units, we can maintain and support your outage in as few as three days with our engine exchange options.

oem-fms-support OEM FLEET MANAGEMENT SUPPORT SOLUTIONS AROUND THE GLOBE

Thanks to a wide network of Authorized Service Providers (ASPs) you can benefit from a global footprint of support for overhaul services or upgrades. Whether your units are serviced by GE or an ASP, you’ll be able to take advantage of quick turnarounds, guarantees, and reliable service. The result? Getting your engines up and running in a way that isn’t always possible with many other turbine OEMs today.

To help you adapt to a new OEM, GE offers a full spectrum of training, ranging from transactional support on an ad-hoc basis to a full support agreement with guarantees.

GE’s LM6000 Hybrid EGT™ integrates a battery storage system with the LM6000 gas turbine, enabling contingency (spinning) reserve without fuel-burn between demand events. This also enables high-speed regulation, primary frequency response, and voltage support (-8 to +5 MVAR) with the combined response of the gas turbine and battery storage system.

With the integrated battery energy storage system, GE’s inverters and GE’s LM6000 OpFlex™ controls upgrade, we can transform your GE LM6000 to a powerful tool to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide benefits while balancing the use of renewable and combined-cycle gas turbine assets.
