GE Oil & Gas introduced two new technologies at the 2017 Annual Meeting, in Florence, Italy: super-efficient gas turbines LM9000 and NovaLT12.
The LM9000 is a 65MW, 43% simple cycle efficiency Aeroderivative Gas Turbine, derived from the proven GE90 jet engine fitted on Boeing 777. The LM9000 delivers 50% longer maintenance interval, 20% more power and 40% lower NOx emissions, resulting in 20% lower cost of ownership for LNG customers. In addition to LNG applications in off and onshore, it can also be utilized for simple cycle, cogeneration and combined cycle power generation.
GE Oil & Gas also launched the latest addition to its growing family of heavy-duty gas turbines the NovaLT12 . An efficient, flexible, modular turbine designed for high efficiency and lower total cost of ownership than market peers, the NovaLT12 was developed with a special focus on oil and gas midstream operations — both mechanical drive and power generation — and is well suited to a wide range of upstream and downstream applications. The NovaLT12 leverages the success of GE’s NovaLT gas turbines program overall, which includes the NovaLT16 and that of the NovaLT5, designed to meet residential, industrial and commercial customers’ needs with a reliable and efficient plug and play solution below 20 MW. With an efficiency of up to 85% in cogeneration applications, these gas turbines represent an advanced solution to produce heat and power, and they can increase industrial plant efficiency while reducing NOx and CO2 emissions.
