Stable boiler operation is key to efficient, reliable, and cost-effective power generation for both utilities and industries. Back in 1999, the acquisition of Combustion Engineering (C-E) by Alstom, and then GE, added important C-E legacy technology to our portfolio, effectively complementing our boiler, steam turbine, and generator-rotating technologies. With over 100 years of experience in fuel, combustion, and other boiler technologies, we’re proud to be the OEM for C-E boiler service solutions and offer a complete steam plant portfolio.
Formed in 1914, Combustion Engineering was one of the few companies that advanced the technology of boilers for steam energy. With the acquisition of Combustion Engineering, GE Power delivers a comprehensive service offering and enhanced repair technologies for C-E boilers.
|1914||Dozens of leading fuel combustion companies form Combustion Engineering Inc. (C-E).|
|1977||C-E purchases PC (Pollution Control) Walther, forms CE Walther, and later forms the Environmental Systems division of C-E, devoted to air quality control.|
|1999||ABB and Alstom merge their respective power businesses into a joint venture company known as ABB Alstom Power Ltd.|
|2000||Alstom purchases the ABB interest and creates Alstom S.A.|
|2015||GE purchases Alstom S.A. Power segments, forming GE Power.|
C-E boilers have a reputation for innovative design and performance. Because GE owns the legacy C-E technology, we’re the sole holders of the OEM knowledge and original C-E boiler designs. This allows us to deliver service knowledge and system parts to support efficient Combustion Engineering boiler maintenance and repairs, for utilities and industrials. Our broad portfolio means we’re fully integrated into all power plant needs.
We have the expertise and experience to service the main types of boiler installed around the world.

In the small Canadian town of La Tuque, pulp & paper production is a big deal. Located in the Quebec province, the community’s economy centers on several manufacturing facilities, including the La Tuque pulp & paper mill, where tons of high-demand packaging goods are produced for industries including food & beverage and beauty & personal care.
Paper mill operating equipment needs routine maintenance to stay in top performing shape. Particularly important is keeping pollution control systems in order. One of the world’s largest paper companies based in Chile reached out to GE Power for help maintaining its Electrostatic Precipitator. By delivering consistently excellent service over time, GE Power won the maintenance contract to maintain the air quality control system equipment.
