GE introduced two new technologies to better position its 7F gas turbine customers to play an integral role in meeting current and future energy demands. GE engineered these solutions – the Dry Low NOx (DLN) 2.6+ Combustion and Advanced Compressor upgrades – for its customers with installed assets to help them deliver their power generation commitments more profitably, flexibly and with a significantly lower emissions footprint. These technologies are the latest additions to GE’s Power FlexEfficiency portfolio of upgrade solutions that harness the combined power of hardware innovations, advanced software and data analytics capabilities.
The DLN 2.6+ solution, announced at the POWER-GEN International trade conference, can deliver broader operational flexibility for GE customers with installed 7F gas turbine assets. With the capability to burn up to 25% ethane or propane from shale gas, this solution also provides customers with the option to burn up to 20% hydrogen.
GE also is introducing the new Advanced Compressor upgrade, a solution that can help 7F gas turbine customers shape their long-term asset management and operational strategies. With Advanced Compressor technology, GE customers can increase their output as much as 12% while improving operational efficiency up to 2%. This additional capacity can help GE customers capture new revenue streams, as well as deliver more power during peak periods.
