What Can Upgrading Do for You?

The new 6B Repowering upgrade can advance performance in both gas turbine and combined-cycle operation:

  • Output increase up to 25% (combined-cycle operation)
  • Efficiency improvement up to 5 points (simple and combined-cycle operation)
  • Turndown as low as 40%
  • NOx reduction as low as 15 ppm
  • Fits into the existing 6B footprint

…all without sacrificing the unit’s renowned reliability—which exceeds 98%--or fuel flexibility.

How we get you there

By injecting a range of advanced technologies from GE’s F- and H-Class gas turbine fleets, the 6B Repowering upgrade transforms the 6B unit into a GE 6F.01 gas turbine.

The upgrade consists of a full “flange-to-flange” upgrade of all major components including the combustion system, hot gas path, and compressor. Additionally, it incorporates a hot end drive with a new exhaust frame and radial diffuser- a design scaled from the 6F.01 new unit  

We can apply this upgrade to any 6B unit, including machines that operate in a wide range of applications including:

  • District heating
  • Petrochemical
  • Oil & gas
  • Utility for electricity generation
