Meeting each site’s requirements

GE condensers are designed for each specific installation, meeting sustained high-performance requirements, enhancing reliability, adapting to varied site cooling conditions, and providing simplified construction with pre-assembled modules.

Condensers are delivered as fully tubed modules, so that little welding is required on site. The condenser houses the first two stages of low-pressure heaters for simplified arrangement of the turbine building.
