At WFES 2012, GE will highlight advanced power, water re-use and oil and gas technologies, including GE solutions for modernizing the grid to meet our growing capacity, sustainability, economic and security needs.
It will showcase innovative and fuel flexible energy technologies that offer enhanced operational flexibility and efficiency including GE Energy’s FlexEfficiency technology, which integrates renewables with natural gas to produce cleaner, more affordable and reliable power.
GE will also display its new filter house technology, which is specifically designed to eliminate gas turbine shut downs for offline axial compressor water washes.
In the renewable energy arena, GE features wind turbines ranging from 1.5 to 4.1 megawatts, designed for high efficiency in all wind conditions and offering advanced technology grid integration features.
GE’s advanced dry low NOx (DLN) technology, which enables the lowering of gas turbine emissions during operations, will also be on show at WFES.
GE Energy is a regional leader in power generation, with more than 1,000 turbines installed throughout the Middle East and more than $8 billion in power generation projects announced in the past five years, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
