GE unveils PowerXpand portfolio for rapid power
By Alyssa Dalton
July 9, 2012 – GE has introduced its PowerXpand portfolio, which features several GE technologies designed for customers looking to address temporary power needs or in search of permanent power “in a pinch,” it describes. The portfolio consists of GE’s TM2500 and TM2500+ mobile aeroderivative gas turbine generator sets, the Jenbacher J320 containerized gas engine generator set and the V250/V228 diesel engine generator sets. According to GE Energy, PowerXpand technologies offer start-up times of less than 10 minutes, allowing providers to ramp up quickly to meet peak demand and ramp down to avoid energy waste.
