Orders include the first heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) technology project following GE’s acquisition of Korean-based Doosan Engineering & Construction Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) business in August 2016.
At the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21), Korea announced its aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 37% by 2030. GE’s broad power generation portfolio is well positioned to support the country’s goals and regional customer needs with the latest high-efficiency technologies.
GE’s current Asia Pacific gas turbine fleet consists of more than 1,000 units across 15 countries, comprising the largest gas turbine portfolio in the region.
GE units can deliver from 22 megawatts (MW) of power up to 519 MW, the equivalent power that would be needed to supply more than 1 million homes in countries such as Japan and Korea. More than 20,000 GE professionals work in the region with dedicated facilities in 10 countries.
Today’s announcement includes more than $660 million in orders from GE’s Power Services business (signed during the last 90 days), providing customers with other-OEM service capabilities.
Power Services expanded its total plant solutions capabilities with GE’s acquisition of Alstom’s Thermal Power business in 2015. GE also continues to see growth in its combined cycle power plant technologies such as HRSG to enable better plant performance. ■
