GE Power Generation Gas Engines, Generator Sets, CHP Modules and ORC Systems

Distributed Power from GE has more than a century of combined experience in gas turbines and gas engine technology with our aeroderivative gas turbine, Jenbacher gas engine, and Waukesha* gas engine product lines.

Today, Distributed Power from GE is integrating these solutions to address critical applications in the most effective and timely ways possible and with the broadest set of offerings available.

Our mission is to develop faster, more flexible solutions, always with your requirements in mind. Worldwide, more than 1,400 engineers continuously work on the technological developments for our engines and turbines. In addition, GE’s seven global research centers spread across four continents ensure that our products use the most advanced technologies in areas such as metallurgy, combustion and aerodynamics while also innovating locally with customers.

Gas engines for the oil, gas and agriculture industries

You use our reciprocating engines and gas turbines in a diverse set of applications: power generation, cogeneration, oil and gas production, and mechanical drives.

Our products compress liquefied natural gas, transport natural gas through pipelines, provide electricity and process steam for petrochemical plants, add grid stability needed for renewables, generate baseload power, and perform countless other functions. Our customers across this wide range of industries choose our equipment when efficiency, reliability and service really matter.

Our equipment deployed in exploration and production applications can tolerate a wide range of fuel qualities without de-rating, driving compression and providing power for oil and gas production in the most challenging applications and even in high-altitude environments. Our engines are also an industry leader in producing electricity from biogas and other specialty fuels. The wide range of power output and the flexibility of our gas turbines make Distributed Power from GE the supplier of choice for cogeneration, offering tailored solutions for nearly every industry.

Gas engines for natural and man-made / waste gases

GE’s Jenbacher gas engines range in power from 248kW to 9.5MW and run on either natural gas or a variety of other gases, such as biogas, landfill gas, coal mine gas, sewage gas and combustible industrial waste gases.

A broad range of commercial, industrial and municipal customers use Jenbacher products for on-site generation of power, heat and cooling. Patented combustion systems, engine controls and monitoring enable its power generation plants to meet stringent emission standards, while offering high levels of efficiency, durability and reliability.
