The perks of OEM experience

Improved value and a focus on what matters

We can help you improve reliability, fuel flexibility, and load turndown—while reducing OpEx and outage time for your GT13E2 gas turbine. Composed of 50+ smaller upgrades, our packages are the result of decades of innovation and lessons learned with customers like you.


What can upgrading your GT13E2 gas turbine do for you?

To simplify the approach to these upgrades we’ve packaged multiple, related solutions in seven categories. Since “one size fits all” fixes rarely exist, every single solution is available as stand-alone, to ease integration with your own running configuration. Whether it’s about outdated parts needing replacement, start-up snags, or service opportunities, you’ll get visibility on what your gas turbine needs.


Fleet data that keeps you running

Since not every owner of a GT13E2 gas turbine faces identical challenges, we monitor and study our fleets, turning unique customer concerns into actionable information. Our collected analytics have made the most commonly encountered challenges visible. With that, the potential of your GT13E2 turbine is even greater.

With its reliability exceeding 98.9%**, robust engineering, proven agility, and leading intervals in the E-Class space, your GT13E2 is ready for enhancement through 50+ custom solutions to choose from.
