• Next Generation Natural Gas Technology to Meet North American Energy Challenges;
• Custom-Designed Mobile Exhibit Offers Interactive Exhibits and Demonstrations;
• An Excellent Partner for Bringing More Renewables to North America’s Power Grid.

The truck will be the centerpiece of a customer event being held at the GE Innovation Center on 8th Avenue.

A custom-designed, 18-wheel mobile exhibit is loaded with interactive, state-of-the-art displays and demonstrations of GE’s FlexEfficiency 60 power generation portfolio, which was unveiled Sept. 26 during a Global Launch Event in San Francisco, California.

Built for 60-hertz countries such as the U.S. and Canada, GE’s new FlexEfficiency 60 Portfolio is engineered to harness natural gas and enable greater use of renewable energy. The new technology offers record-setting efficiency, which will reduce emissions and save money compared to previous GE configurations, along with unprecedented flexibility. This combination of efficiency and flexibility will enable utilities to deliver power quickly when it is needed and to ramp down when it is not, balancing the grid cost effectively.

“Our North American truck tour will demonstrate how the latest innovation in power generation will meet today’s environmental challenges while driving economic growth,” said Paul Browning, president and CEO of Thermal Products for GE Power & Water. “GE is going on the road to help further educate customers, industry influencers and financers about the importance of natural gas and mixing it with renewables.”

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 Combined Cycle Power 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 drivers trading in their cars for bicycles.

GE continues to invest in Canada, having opened several new innovation centres across the country including today’s announcement of the Grid IQ• Global Innovation Centre in Markham, Ontario. Other recently opened facilities include the Aircraft Engine Testing Research and Development Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba; the company’s first Digital Pathology Centre of Excellence in Toronto, Ontario; and a new Aviation robotics facility in Bromont, Quebec, which will open in early 2013.

After its stopover in Calgary, the GE FlexEfficiency truck will return to the U.S. and visit 22 more cities before winding up in Mexico City in January, 2013.
