From desert heat to arctic cold, GE’s E-class gas turbine power plants are in operation in some of the most demanding locations in the world. Since operation began more than 35 years ago, our fleet of over 3,000 E-class gas turbines has accumulated more than 140 million operating hours, while burning the widest range of fuels.
E-Class Plants in a Size and Configuration to Meet Almost Any Need
Typical applications range from simple-cycle and combined-cycle power generation, to combined heat and power for district heating, to mechanical drives for LNG facilities. Available outputs range from 44 MW for a 6B.03 simple-cycle plant to more than 420 MW for a 2x1 9E.04-based combined-cycle plant.
Capability to Operate on the Widest Range of Fuels
The hallmark of GE’s E-class of power plants is the ability to reliably burn a wide variety of fuels, including crude oils, highly-refined liquids, steel mill process gases, natural gas, and higher hydrocarbon gases. The combustion systems are capable of operating in single, dual, or tri-fuel configurations.
Longest Maintenance Intervals Without Reduced Performance
E-class units are built to stay online longer, in extreme and remote conditions. Inspected every 32,000 hours for combustion and hot gas inspections, the E-class’s long inspection intervals provide more than two extra days of operation per year.
