6B.03 GAS TURBINE (50 Hz/60 Hz)

INDUSTRIAL-STRENGTH, FIELD-PROVEN RELIABILITY

The rugged, reliable 6B.03 heavy duty gas turbine is a popular choice for
refineries, natural gas liquefaction power, combined heat and power (CHP) and
industrial power applications. Its ability to operate in island mode, coupled with
its 94.6 percent availability, make the 6B.03 gas turbine an ideal solution for
remote installations and extreme operating conditions far from the grid. With
99 percent reliability, proven and tested with more than 55 million operating hours,
GEs 6B.03 gas turbines provide cost-effective power you can count on.

Industry-Leading Fuel Flexibility

Accommodates the multiple start-ups required for


seasonal CHP.

Operates on a broad range of fuels:


DLN combustion supports low-cost gas and liquid fuels,
including process gases, low calorific gases, and up to
30 percent hydrogen, 100 percent ethane, 100 percent
propane and 50 percent nitrogen.

Capable of black starts for volatile grid environments.


Built to stay online in extreme and remote conditions.
Pre-assembled gas turbine package with accessories for
easier transport and faster site installation; as low as six
months from order to operation.

Standard combustor is capable of up to 95 percent


hydrogen, or heavy fuel oil with up to 200 ppm vanadium;
also supports naptha, bioethanol, methanol, synthetic
gases, and steel mill gases.
20 MW in less than five seconds measured onsite with
Dry Low NOx combustion system to support a grid
power deficit.
289 MM Btu/hr exhaust energy at 549C can generate a
high quantity of steam with pressure up to 110 bar for
industrial steam without supplementary firing.

All of our gas turbines share the common heritage of


jet engine technology pioneered by GE in the first half
of the 20th century. They are typically categorized as
either heavy duty (sometimes also called frame) or
aeroderivative gas turbines, although some turbines
recently have adopted features of both design types.
In general, the differences between the aeroderivative
and heavy duty gas turbines are weight, size, combustor
type, and turbine design. Heavy duty gas turbines are
usually field constructed and maintained in place,
whereas aeroderivative gas turbines are designed to
allow for quick replacement of the entire engine when
maintenance is required.

GEs portfolio of heavy duty and aeroderivative gas


turbines helps provide a sense of certainty in an
uncertain world, delivering operational flexibility and
performance needed to adapt to a rapidly evolving
power generation environment. With gas turbine
products ranging in individual output from 22 MW to
519 MW, GE has a solution to reliably and efficiently
deliver the power needed by utility power generators,
industrial operators, and communities. Even in remote
locations and harsh conditions, you can count on GE to
deliver a gas turbine that will meet your needs.
