For 50 years, more than 700 of our condensers have been engineered, commissioned, and delivered. Over the past 35 years, we have retrofitted more than 70 condenser tube bundles and set a record of 19 days for a 900 MW NPP retrofit

Higher performance and reliability

Features a patented tube bundle design (the Daisy bundle) and a track record of outstanding performance over the past 50 years.

Greater efficiency

Includes highly efficient tube bundles that are scaled to meet the needs of any size power plant.

Robust design for flexible operation

Designed to handle turbine and steam generator overloads and variations in cooling water temperature. It is resistant to both impingement erosion and tube vibration.

Meeting each site requirements

GE condensers are designed for each specific installation, meeting sustained high-performance requirements, enhancing reliability, adapting to varied site cooling conditions, and providing simplified construction with pre-assembled modules.

Condensers are delivered as fully tubed modules, so that little welding is required on site. The condenser houses the first two stages of low pressure heaters for simplified arrangement of the turbine building.
