Advanced Steam Path (ASP) is GE's high performance approach to steam turbine upgrades. As a world leader in steam plant solutions, GE has helped customers advance the efficiency and operation of 1,300+ steam turbine assets – of which around 30 percent have been on cross-fleet brands of other OEMs including Siemens, KWU, Westinghouse, Toshiba, MHPS and LMZ.
The heart of plant performance
Steam turbines have on average 30 years of working life. As power producers in many parts of the world face increasing pressure to retire existing steam plants for economic or environmental reasons, the Advanced Steam Path provides a cost-effective option to increase the competitiveness and efficiency of existing steam plants with specifically tailored upgrades for high pressure (HP), intermediate pressure (IP) and low pressure (LP) cylinders. As a Fleet360 total plant solution, ASP can be packaged with other hardware and software solutions to further expand plant performance.
