rotating machines

Large power induction motors up to 40 MW

Robust, compact, customizable


Innovative electrical and mechanical power solutions

GE manufactured motors and generators for some of the first commercial and industrial electrical applications more than 125 years ago.

Our machines operate efficiently in the most challenging applications and severe environments where reliability and ease of maintenance is critical.

Our induction motors are available up to 40 MW and are fully customizable to match our customers requirements at whatever speed, from the method of cooling to the smallest accessory.

GE induction motors are highly reliable thanks to their rotor cage construction, the elimination of the retaining rings and they can be load tested at our factory. Our proprietary design allows for low vibration and high-power density

Features and benefits

Compact design
  • High power and torque density
  • Footprint and weight reduced
Customizable configuration
  • Modular cooling system: CACA, CACW, TEPV, WPII, ODP
  • Extreme environmental conditions: -40°C to +55°C ambient temperature, altitude > 1,000 m
  • Safe and hazardous area
  • Fixed speed 50/60 Hz
  • Variable speed application – System approach for VSDS
  • High load inertia starting
  • Direct on line starting with limited voltage drop on the network (low inrush current)
  • Compliance to high level specifications
