• GE’s Aeroderivative and Digital Energy Businesses Work Together to Provide Turnkey Solution;
• GE’s First TM2500+ Aeroderivative Gas Turbine Mobile Units Installed in Latin America.

GE will provide its TM2500+ aeroderivative gas turbines for each project to Empresa Electrica Valle Hermoso, a subsidiary of the government entity Empresa Nacional de Electricidad (ENDE). Additionally, GE Energy’s Digital Energy business will provide the electrical and mechanical balance of plant services for both projects.

“There is a power emergency in Bolivia, and consequently, we have a need for fast, reliable power. GE was able to help us meet this need in a project that is providing 24 megawatts of power in just 90 days,” said Gustavo Ramos Terán, CEO of Empresa Electrica Valle Hermoso. “GE’s advanced technology and expertise, combined with its ability to meet our needs quickly and efficiently, made them an ideal choice for this important project.”

For one project, GE shipped its TM2500+ aeroderivative gas turbine mobile power plant to Carrasco, located near the City of Santa Cruz, in late September. Commercial operation will begin in mid-November. The equipment for the second project at Kenko, located near La Paz, shipped in late September, with commercial operation planned for February 2012.

“Our TM2500+ trailer-mounted aeroderivative gas turbines have been developed specifically to respond to the need for fast or mobile power,” said Darryl Wilson, president and CEO—aeroderivative gas turbines for GE Power & Water. “This ability to provide fast, flexible power is helping the Bolivian government quickly meet the growing energy demands it is facing. As GE’s first two TM2500+ units in Latin America, Bolivia will have the latest, proven technology with the added benefit of GE’s extensive expertise.”

GE’s TM2500+ technology incorporates the lightweight design of its LM2500+ aeroderivative gas turbine with the Brush 170ER generator. It is packaged on a two-trailer system with a top-mounted air inlet filter and exhaust assemblies requiring 77 percent less space than the TM2500 core offering. Both the inlet filter assembly and the exhaust duct are mounted directly on top of the main trailer assembly, allowing for easier transport by ship, air or road to even the most remote locations. The improved TM2500+ design offers an increased number of quick-disconnect fittings to simplify and accelerate the installation process, which can enable assembly and set-up in just one day.

The TM2500+ can operate on either natural gas or liquid distillate fuels and easily converts from 50 to 60 Hz. It also offers low emissions, easy operation and maintenance and fast deployment.

GE’s aeroderivative business, headquartered in Houston, Texas, brings power to businesses and communities around the world by modifying highly reliable GE aviation engines to burn natural gas and/or biofuels for efficient, reliable energy. These jet engine-based power generation units, which range from 18-100 MW, help energy companies take advantage of the growing trend to use abundant, cleaner-burning natural gas for power generation. GE’s aeroderivative gas turbines have been selected for a multitude of energy applications, ranging from power generation to the exploration, production and transmission of oil and gas. The units also have marine propulsion system applications including transport, ferryboat and cruise ships.
