The most powerful air-cooled generator in operation today, GE’s TOPAIR turbogenerator has accumulated operational experience from more than 570 installations worldwide. It's a robust machine that provides high reliability and maintainability.
The economical choice
The TOPAIR has multiple cost advantages over hydrogen-cooled generators due to its high power rating and efficiency.
The TOPAIR air-cooled generator uses the latest advanced technology, leading to an enhanced power range and increased efficiency at limited product cost.
Proven operational flexibility
From demonstrated robustness and reliability over many years in all operation modes with more than 570 units installed globally.
TOPAIR air-cooled generators have distinct advantages over hydrogen-cooled generators. One of TOPAIR’s key differentiators is a power output range that usually is found in larger and less cost-effective hydrogen-cooled generators. This is the result of continuous, evolutionary development that has pushed the limits of power output while enhancing efficiency and controlling investment costs.
At the same time, the TOPAIR is simple and easy to operate and maintain. Because of its short production time (featuring parallel manufacturing of the stator and casing), pre-assembly, and ease of transport, the flexible TOPAIR can be up and running quickly. This reduces construction and commissioning time and accelerates the flow of plant revenue. TOPAIR units are available in standardized sizes, with different capabilities and performances.
