Overview

LM6000 power plants

With over 40 million operating hours and more than 1,200 units shipped, GE’s LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbine has more operating experience than any other aeroderivative gas turbine greater in the +40 MW space. The LM6000 offers greater than 99 percent start and operational reliability and over 98 percent availability. Its 5-minute fast start allows operators to differentiate their dispatch capability while a simple two-spool design results in lower overall maintenance costs. Universal and modular packaging gives the LM6000 a smaller footprint and allows for faster installation and commissioning.

Faster power to the grid

Introducing the LM6000VELOX* package

The new LM6000VELOX package aims to reduce the installation and commissioning schedule of LM6000 turbines by up to 40%, saving up to 4,000 labor hours. This translates to an expected 90 days I&C schedule. Thanks to multiple enhanced modularity features, the LM6000VELOX package is ushering in a new era of speed in the energy industry. 

GE Vernova's LM6000VELOX package is available in both simple and combined cycle configurations, as either a DLE or SAC (water injected) combustor configuration, and for both 50 and 60 Hertz segments.
