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
