GE Oil & Gas today introduced two new super-efficient gas turbines LM9000 and NovaLT12 at their 2017 Annual Meeting, in Florence, Italy.
“The best companies use volatile times as a catalyst to drive beneficial change,” Rod Christie, President and CEO of Turbomachinery Solutions, GE Oil & Gas said. “We have taken this industry cycle to reflect on what our customers will need in the future and are disrupting traditional product development to introduce smarter and more cost-effective advanced gas turbines that address the industry’s greatest needs; reliability, flexibility, efficiency and productivity.
The LM9000 is a 65MW, 43% simple cycle efficiency Aeroderivative Gas Turbine, derived from the proven GE90 jet engine fitted on Boeing 777. The LM9000 delivers 50% longer maintenance interval, 20% more power and 40% lower NOx emissions, resulting in 20% lower cost of ownership for LNG customers. In addition to LNG applications in off and onshore, it can also be utilized for simple cycle, cogeneration and combined cycle power generation.
The NovaLT12 is an efficient, flexible, modular turbine designed to meet residential, industrial and commercial customers’ needs with a reliable and efficient plug and play solution below 20 MW. It was developed with a special focus on oil and gas midstream operations and leverages the success of GE’s NovaLT gas turbines program, which includes the NovaLT16 and the NovaLT5.
