The LM2500 family of aeroderivative gas turbines boasts more than five times the operating experience of its competitors combined, and its flexibility and reliability are unsurpassed.

Total Flexibility

With its dual fuel capability, including dry low emissions (DLE) or singular annular combustor (SAC) technology, the LM2500 family was designed for flexibility from the ground up.

Performance that Delivers

Works well for onshore and offshore mechanical drive, in-plant power generation, oil and gas applications and more

Proven Technology for Over 40 Years

More than 2,100 units shipped worldwide and continuous investment from GE to provide increased customer value.

  • Design derived from the CF6-6 and TF-39 aircraft engines from GE Aviation
  • Full power within 10 minutes
  • A best-in-class simple cycle efficiency – up to 36%
  • Small modular footprint saves space and increases efficiency
  • Low emissions and NOx abatement with DLE or SAC combustion
  • Reliability greater than 99%
  • Availability greater than 98%
  • Fuel flexibility allows for distillate or natural gas, diesel, propane, naphtha, coke oven gas, and more
  • DLE NOx of 15 ppm
  • Field installation and commissioning can be achieved in less than 40 days
  • More than 2,100 units shipped worldwide with more than 75 million combined operating hours

 

FORMER NAMES:
LM2500 base, LM1800, LM1600

LM2500+

The LM2500+ adds more power than the original LM2500 base model thanks to several newer technologies, resulting in up to 31 MW of power output.

  • 29-31 MW of power output.
  • Adds one more stage of compression compared to the LM2500 base model.
  • The LM2500 family was designed for flexibility, with its dual fuel capability, including dry low emissions (DLE) or singular annular combustor (SAC) technology.
  • Optimal size for pipelines, peak power generation, and CHP applications, with LM2500 modular footprint.
  • Adds higher airflow and an increased firing temperature compared with LM2500.
  • Full power within 10 minutes.
  • Up to 38 percent simple-cycle efficiency.
  • Greater than 99 percent reliability.
  • Greater than 98 percent availability.
  • Same fuel flexibility as LM2500.

LM2500+G4

With the highest power in its class, the LM2500+G4 aeroderivative gas turbine is the fourth generation of LM2500 technology and also offers higher efficiency than past models. It shares many of the same features and benefits as the LM2500+, with a few additions:

  • 33-37 MW of power output.
  • Fourth generation G4 technology allows the LM2500+G4 to achieve the highest power in its class.
  • With its dual fuel capability, including dry low emissions (DLE), the LM2500+G4 family was designed for flexibility from the ground up.
  • Its 99 percent reliability and >98 percent availability ensure that it’s ready when you are.
  • The LM2500+G4 builds on decades of design experience and combines it with cutting-edge G4 technology for up to 37 MW power output.
