GE aeroderivative turbine technology to power Winter Olympics

GE is to supply two advanced aeroderivative gas turbines to help power the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, taking place in Sochi, Russia.
 
The company will supply two LMS100 PB aeroderivative units, featuring its latest emissions technology, to provide both baseload and peak load power for the Olympics.
 
According to GE, a key benefit of the new technology is that the units can start-up in less than 10 minutes.
 
GE has a leadership position in the global heavy-duty and aeroderivative gas turbine industry. It currently has close to 10 000 gas turbines in operation and recently surpassed a combined 300 million hours of global operation.
 
“As more gas discoveries are announced, and gas prices remain favorable, customers in many key areas of the world, such as Saudi Arabia, Brazil and Japan, are turning to gas fired power plants to address their immediate and longer-term needs for cleaner, reliable power generation,” said Steve Bolze, CEO of GE Power & Water.
