AERODERIVATIVE GAS TURBINE
A leader in the 40+ MW space
With over 40 million operating hours and more than 1,300 units shipped, the LM6000 offers 99%+ start and operational reliability and 98% availability. Its 5-minute fast start allows operators to differentiate their dispatch capability, and its dual-fuel capabilities provides fuel flexibility and helps customers meet emissions limits.
The LM6000 allows you to operate on a wide variety of fuels—including natural gas, LPG (propane and butane), isopentane, ethanol, diesel, and Coke Oven gas. This means you can quickly switch between fuels to save money, all without stopping, and without a reduction in power.
Universal and modular packaging gives the LM6000 a smaller footprint and allows for faster installation—in as little as 3 months for simple cycle and 12 months for combined cycle configurations—the fastest installation time in our history.
Aeros like our LM6000 are built for high cycling capability, which allows customers to get up and running—and on the grid—quickly. With around five minutes to ramp up from start-up to full power, typical medium-speed reciprocating engines have a ramp rate of about 5 MW/min, but aeroderivative gas turbines have a nominal ramp rate of around 50 MW/min, providing a much faster frequency control response for better grid support.
With over 1,300 units shipped and 40 million combined operating hours, the LM6000 family has more operating experience than any other aeroderivative gas turbine greater than 40 MW.
