Lifecycle know-how for your coal power plant

Many countries are choosing coal power plants as part of their energy mix to secure their grid while introducing intermittent power sources. With coal as a resource, they can provide around-the-clock power to meet their population’s growing needs and deliver a stable energy supply to their rising industries. 


Facing new challenges

At GE, we understand the need for new but improved coal power plants. In parallel, the installed base of coal power plants is facing new challenges: Operating budgets are tighter and the need for flexibility is more critical than ever. These changes make it imperative to have steam power plant services with capabilities and flexibility to match.

This is why we’ve been investing in the latest technology to ensure we deliver power in the best way possible. Now, when it comes to your most pressing questions, our answer is yes. This is the Power of Yes.


Can GE be my lifecycle partner for my coal power plant?

Yes. As the world’s need for accessible power grows, coal power will continue to be a vital way to meet this demand. However, to limit emissions, it is essential that coal-fired power plants provide high efficiency and rely on leading air quality and pollution control technologies. GE Steam Power has installed 30% of the world’s steam turbine capacity and 30% of the world’s boilers, and has provided 1,500 steam turbine module retrofits.
