GE has launched a global temporary/emergency power business called PowerXpand which offers solutions in the 1 MW to 31 MW range.
The portfolio of PowerXpand’s temporary/emergency power products consists of GE’s TM2500 and TM2500+ mobile aeroderivative gas turbine generator sets, the Jenbacher J320 containerized gas engine generator set and the V250/V228 diesel engine generator sets.
“With our global network of partners, flexible and responsive supply chain and world-class execution, we are able to meet the needs of PowerXpand customers in nearly any environment quickly,” said Darryl Wilson, president and CEO aeroderivative gas turbines for GE Power & Water.
“Our PowerXpand portfolio is ideal to provide a base load bridge to permanent power, for generating backup power to support natural disaster relief, plant shutdowns or equipment maintenance or for overcoming generation constraints such as hydropower shortages. The portfolio offers customers a range of products and services from a single gas engine to an entire power plant complete from engineering to commission and anything in between.”
