• Custom-Designed Mobile Exhibit Offers Interactivity and Demonstrations of Latest Technology;
• Stops Planned for 25 Cities over the Next Four Months;
• FlexEfficiency 60 an Excellent Partner for Bringing More Renewables to the Power Grid;
• Portfolio Products to be Built in U.S. and Shipped Worldwide.

Over the next four months, the 4,000-mile tour will stop in 25 North American cities, showcasing the economic and environmental benefits of GE’s latest and most advanced energy technology.

A custom-designed, 18-wheel tractor-trailer is loaded with interactive, state-of-the-art exhibits and demonstrations of GE’s FlexEfficiency 60 Portfolio, which was unveiled today during a global launch event at San Francisco City Hall. From San Francisco, the truck’s first two stops are in Sacramento and Calgary, Alberta, Canada, followed by stopovers in cities across the U.S. including Los Angeles, Denver, Houston, Boston, New York and Orlando, Fla., site of the Power-Gen International 2012 trade show. The tour ends in January in Mexico City, Mexico.

Built for 60-hertz countries such as the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Saudi Arabia and Japan, GE’s new FlexEfficiency 60 Portfolio addresses the emerging need for technology capable of providing electricity with record-setting efficiency and operating flexibility. This natural gas-fired technology can rapidly increase its power output in response to fluctuations in wind and solar power, which enables more integration of renewable resources into the power grid.

“Our North American truck tour will demonstrate how the latest innovation in power generation will meet today’s energy challenges while driving economic growth,” said Paul Browning, president and CEO, Thermal Products for GE Power & Water. “GE is going on the road to further educate customers, industry influencers and others about our expanded portfolio of large block gas turbines that can provide highly efficient baseload power and pair natural gas with renewables.”

In addition to viewing the various displays, visitors to the GE truck will be able to meet with GE technical experts to discuss the key features and benefits of FlexEfficiency 60 technology.

GE will build the FlexEfficiency 60 Portfolio of products in the United States for shipment around the globe. “GE’s world-class employees are working hard to make the world work better by delivering cleaner, more efficient energy onto the grid and into millions of homes,” Browning added.

An ecomagination*-qualified product designed to take on the world’s toughest environmental challenges, the FlexEfficiency 60 Plant will avoid 2.6 million metric tons of carbon emissions per year when compared to an equal-sized coal power plant.[1] This emissions reduction is equivalent to a half million U.S. drivers trading in their cars for bicycles.
