The 35.3 MW Engine

GE

The 35.3 MW gas turbine is the fourth generation of the industry-leading 25.1 MW gas turbine.

It has all the same high reliability, availability, and efficiency (lower SFC) of the previous generation (3.20 MW) but with 17 percent more power.

The modular design of the 35.3 MW provides for easy and timely repair and refurbishment, with features including:

  • Split compressor casing
  • In-place blade and vane replacement
  • In-place hot-section maintenance
  • External fuel nozzles

The compact 35.3 MW gas turbine can operate on a variety of fuels and can be positioned almost anywhere on a ship to create additional cargo or passenger space. GE's 35.3 MW marine gas turbine is ideal for LNG carriers and yachts.
