SGT-400 gas turbine fleet achieves more than half a million hours in commercial operation

Individual lead packages have completed more than 54.000 operating hours, equivalent to more than six years of continuous operation.

More than 100 units have been sold into 18 countries on four continents: providing power for pipeline compressor stations in Alaska; generating power and heat to communities in Germany, working offshore in oil and gas pumping applications in West Africa and providing secure and efficient power and heat to ceramics industries in South East Asia are just some examples of their applications.

With terminal power rating of 12.9 megawatts (MW) for electrical generation, and a shaft output power of 13.4 MW for mechanical drive, the SGT-400 is a compact and reliable prime mover for a wide range of applications. The SGT-400 is the highest efficiency gas turbine core in its class with 36.2% efficiency at shaft output. Utilization of the exhaust heat in cogeneration applications has demonstrated total efficiency levels of 87 percent, minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption.
