Mobile and Emergency Power

During an emergency or a period of intense growth, you need rapid, highly mobile power generation to quickly bridge the power gap. GE delivers fast, temporary expanded power through a variety of gas engine and aeroderivative gas turbine solutions, including our PowerXpand* portfolio.

GE's PowerXpand portfolio consists of the three generator sets: TM2500+ trailer-mounted aeroderivative gas turbine; containerized Jenbacher J320 gas engine; and 12V228 diesel engine.

How It Works

Due to their smaller sizes and GE’s ability to rapidly ship, build and commission these technologies, our distributed power solutions are well-suited to respond to a variety of scenarios demanding rapid power generation. The PowerXpand portfolio delivers fast, efficient, flexible, and reliable power when and where you need it, including:

  • Helping countries reach electrification goals
  • Providing bridge power solutions for growing demand
  • Bringing power to remote areas
  • Responding quickly to emergency power situations
  • Generating backup power to support maintenance, overhauls or outages at power plants or large-scale projects/events
