With models ranging from 45-59 MW, the LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbines continue to evolve, shattering performance records and taking flexibility and speed to a new level.

Enhance Performance...and Your Bottom Line.

Its 56 percent combined-cycle efficiency is an industry leader, helping you achieve better dollars-per-kilowatt and greater flexibility. With optional SPRINT technology, power output can be increased as much as 10 percent without major modifications.

A Powerful Heritage and Proven Reputation

With over 1,200 units shipped and 33 million combined operating hours, the LM6000 family has more operating experience than any other aeroderivative gas turbine greater than 40 MW.

Faster Installation than Ever Before

The new LM6000 package allows for installation in as little as 3 months for simple cycle and 12 months for combined cycle configurations – the fastest installation time in our history.
