GE announces launch of new LM6000

11 January 2017

GE has launched the latest version of its aeroderivative gas turbine, the LM6000-PF+. The GT incorporates technologies from GE Aviation for the gas turbine, GE Energy Management for controls, GE Oil & Gas for gearbox equipment and GE Power & Water for the overall design and engineering.  As a result, says GE, the PF+ offers higher open-cycle gas turbine output (52-58 MW) and combined-cycle efficiency (56%) than other aeroderivative products in its class.
The company already has a six-unit order from Thailand’s Gulf Energy Development with Mitsui Corp under EPC contract with TOYO Engineering Corp – GE’s largest ever Thailand deal for distributed power applications.
GED, one of Thailand’s largest independent power producers, selected the PF+ for three combined-cycle power plants to be installed within 300 km of Bangkok. The PF+’s high exhaust temperature will help increase efficiency and generate an additional 90 MW of power from each plant. GED has signed a 25-year multi-year agreement with GE for long-term upgrades and maintenance on the units, slated for shipment in 2016.
GE will introduce the new PF+ package design for full installation for simple-cycle plants in three months time, and for combined-cycle plants in 12 months.
