OUTLOOK FAVORABLE FOR GE-10 IN MECHANICAL DRIVE DUTY
Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Source: General Electric

NEWTOWN, Conn. - The GE-10 gas turbine is becoming a popular machine for mechanical load drive and electrical generation duty; its regenerative cycle mode offers an attractive option for continuous service applications.

For mechanical load drive duty, the machine's speed has been optimized for direct coupling to pipeline, injection, and process compressors. The machine is projected to be more popular in the mechanical load drive arena due to its similarity to the venerable MS3002. With new GE-10 technology (along with technology from the PGT10), customers of the older MS3002s can upgrade their machines easily and quickly without the cost of acquiring a new machine. (More than 800 Frame 3s were installed for mechanical load drive duty.) In addition, the sales and marketing support provided by the General Electric Company (USA) parent group and its after-sales division should boost machine sales, particularly in the oil sector but also in the electrical generation sector. Considerable support for this gas turbine machine will come from GE Oil & Gas in Italy. A potentially large market for this particular gas turbine is the retrofit and upgrade of older gas turbines, including machines installed by Nuovo Pignone in such countries as Algeria and the Russian Federation.

The GE Oil & Gas GE-10 machine, even with the muscle and weight of the General Electric Company behind it, will continue to face stiff competition from Solar Gas Turbines and MAN TURBO, two well-known and well-respected entities in the gas turbine arena that continue to display strength and ingenuity in generating orders.

Results from the relationships between GE Oil & Gas, Kobe Steel, and China Aviation Gas Turbine Company have been positive, and the agreements account for one-third of the GE-10-1 sales in the respective regions.

GE Oil & Gas continues to view the Russian Federation and other countries of the former Soviet Union as a potentially viable market, especially for mechanical drive duty, both for replacing older Russian-design machines and for new installations. Under the Heads of Agreement finalized in November 2010, ZKMK will manufacture, supply, test, and service GE's advanced- technology GE-10 gas turbine units for deployment in critical infrastructure projects in Kazakhstan.
