FlexEfficiency* 60 Portfolio

Built for the needs of 60 hertz countries, GE’s FlexEfficiency 60 Portfolio provides efficiency and unprecedented operating flexibility to accommodate both continuous and cyclic operation while delivering reliable, responsive power to the energy grid. The portfolio includes the latest generation of F-class gas and D-series steam turbines, a simplified H26 generator, and an advanced Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG), all controlled by GE’s Mark* Vle Integrated Control System (ICS). Built on modular architecture and technology, the FlexEfficiency 60 Combined Cycle Power Plant delivers reliable, efficient, and cost effective power in customized configurations.

Flexible and Efficient Power Generation

Never before have power plant owners had more opportunities to employ valuable natural gas resources with such a high level of efficiency. Whether customers need highly efficient baseload power or more flexible cyclic power generation, the FlexEfficiency 60 Portfolio delivers both.

Each of the components in the FlexEfficiency 60 Portfolio—from the gas and steam turbines to the generator and control system—contain the same strands of “FlexEfficiency DNA.” By sharing core components among technologies, GE is able to increase the speed with which it brings products to customers.

No solution delivers more operational flexibility than GE’s FlexEfficiency 60 Combined Cycle Power Plant:

  • Full plant load in less than 30 minutes without sacrificing efficiency or parts life
  • 100 MW/minute ramp rate within emissions guarantees
  • Turndown to 14% of plant baseload

FlexEfficiency 60 Portfolio products install quickly with technology that reduces the occurrence of human error while providing easy access to regularly serviced parts when maintenance is required.

Simply put, the FlexEfficiency 60 Plant’s high level of flexibility, maintainability, and efficiency all combine to provide a reliable energy solution that helps realize profit potential, reduce fuel expenses, and operate with low lifecycle costs.
