Aeroderivative Gas Turbines
The reliability of aircraft engines to power possible
From aircraft to powering oil and gas operations
Our Aeroderivative gas turbines are borne from market-leading technology developed by GE Aviation. Jet engines are comprised of four major components: a fan to provide thrust, a compression section to bring air to high pressure, a combustion chamber where fuel is injected, and finally, the combustion gases are expanded through a turbine section.
GE Aviation’s bestselling jet engines can be found on aircraft including the B747, B767, B777 and the Airbus A330. Since its introduction, our engines have accumulated millions of flight hours of proven reliability for commercial airlines and other special applications.
An aircraft engine is a gas turbine, so to create our Aeroderivative solutions, we began with the GE Aviation flight engines. For BHGE applications, the aeronautical engine is modified, or, to put another way, is a derivative. For example, the fan is removed and the combustor is modified to allow for operation with liquids like diesel, naptha, and ethanol, gaseous fuels such as natural gas, coke oven gas, syngas and flare gas. Our aeroderivatives can even switch from liquid to gas fuel while operating.
The combustion system is modified to incorporate low emissions technology, reducing NOx emissions by a factor of more than 10. The gas turbines are mounted on a base plate and packaged in an enclosure that contains accessories, provides cooling to the exterior of the engine and attenuates noise. It is connected to an electrical generator or a compressor to pump a fluid such as natural gas, water re-injection, or LNG refrigerant depending on the customer’s needs.
Our Aeroderivative gas turbines are the ideal solution in applications where a small footprint and lightweight equipment is required. Aeroderivative gas turbines are highly efficient and rugged choices for onshore and offshore mechanical drive and power generation. They are used in pipeline compression, offshore platforms, gas re-injection and LNG liquifaction.
