Upgrade your generators for flexible operations

Replacing your older generator components with the latest technology

GE’s replacement solutions include engineered replacement configuration for existing other OEM equipment. Replacement solutions include enhanced technical features which were already used and proven on GE equipment. They can fix ageing issues or early deterioration on young generator.

You might face a variety of challenge: your generator is configured for base load but you start operating double shifting, or your generator starts ageing and you want to maintain highest availability, or you want to operate beyond the typical original design life of 40 years, and with a possible uprate, then a replacement solution becomes an option.

Replacement solutions might be the right solution for boosting your generator’s reliability & availability and its output. Replacement components can be configured with latest upgrades for lifetime extension, performance improvement and flexible operation.

Your older generator components can also be refurbished, repaired and kept on hand as a spare or used on another generator.
