marine applications. The LM weighs only 17, pounds (7, kilograms) which is less than half the weight of other large aeroderivative gas turbines. GE on January 14 announced the shipment of its th LM aeroderivative gas turbine to Black Hills Corporation as part of its Pueblo Airport Generation.

GE ships 1,th aeroderivative gas turbine

However, adherence to good operations gass maintenance practices, added Conway, will avoid many common reasons for rejection and replacement of high-cost gas generator components, including:. Dual-fuel capability without water consumption, and maintenance intervals of up to 36, hours for the hot section and 72, hours for overhaul. These units have accumulated over 19, hours and over 1, cycles.

Its Long-term Service Agreement LTSA provides scheduled maintenance, unscheduled maintenance, spare parts, annual audits, and site support. Tturbines Maintenance recommends regular maintenance, including water washing in the field. Based on the CF aircraft engine, over of these rurbines MW turbines were produced. Steam injection can be adjusted to meet varying process steam or electrical requirements, depending on the application.

Over LM gas turbines shipped and over 21 million hours of operation. The LM configuration can be laid out to minimize its area footprint for maximum power density.

The package design includes two trailers.

Pampa Energia in Argentina, owner of the longest running LMS in the fleet, just had its second purchase reach commercial operation in August The LMS has been used in several plants as a replacement for the Frame 9E in combined cycle operation due to its low-temperature exhaust.


The company offers a wide range of commercial models, including time and materials, fixed-price and fixed-scope options, and repair rather than replacement service for high technology gas generator components and ancillaries. Early recognition and regular checks are recommended for continued operational performance and reduced costs.

It can run on natural gas, LPG and liquid fuels, and is said to ramp from start to full power in under 10 minutes. It has been in production since and over units are in operation worldwide. GE will begin shipping the first LM gas turbines in This enables its technicians to inspect and overhaul these gas turbines in a timely manner. This twin spool design with the low pressure turbine operating at 60 Hz, the dominant electrical frequency in North America, eliminates the need for a conventional power turbine.

It is also attracting interest for LNG compression and barge applications. It is said to meet 15ppm NOx emission requirements in gas operation, and can switch between different fuels at full load without interruption.

RWG is responsible for the scheduled maintenance, including mid-life and major overhaul. Siemens has augmented this Rolls-Royce engine with a Dresser-Rand package design optimized for floating applications. Its LMS is a fusion between aero flexibility and heavy-duty power output.

It is typically used for distributed generation, peaking applications, and grid support to counterbalance fluctuating wind energy. Water injected and dry combustor options are available.



Derived from the GE90 jet engine used on the Boeingit can be throttled to adjust power output, and started or stopped without turbinex maintenance intervals. It features increased core speed, exhaust temperature, simple cycle output, and combined cycle efficiency. Its test cell for GTs is one of the largest in the world, using real-load operating conditions to understand vibration patterns.

It also boasts a major gas turbine repair and overhaul business. The SPRINT system injects demineralized water into the engine either upstream of the low pressure compressor or between the low pressure and high pressure compressors.

The FT SwiftPac has a modular design to maximize the amount of factory assembly and reduce the amount of field assembly leading to lower costs. The second trailer carries the 15 kV switchgear, control system, operation panel, aeroderivatife relays, batteries and charger, motor control center, and the hydraulic start package.

Currently, installation and commissioning of two units is in progress at the customer site in Thailand, with commercial operation beginning in March Production shipments began in May The overall fleet size is close to 2, units installed worldwide. All that is required is to change the number of blades in the LP compressor.

The LM uses roller and ball bearings, which have strict inspection criteria. Retrieved from ” https:
