GE to introduce 660, 800 MW steam turbines in India
To strengthen its presence in the power sector, General Electric (GE) will introduce 660 and 800 MW supercritical steam turbines in India this year. With India targeting a capacity addition of 100,000 MW in the 12th Five-Year Plan (2012-17), the demand for various power equipment including high-efficiency turbines is expected to be significant.
Kishore Jayaraman, President and CEO, GE Energy India, said, "The recent focus on using higher efficiency thermal products in India allows GE to introduce its latest generation 660 and 800 MW supercritical steam turbine technology here (in India)." He said these turbines will be introduced in the Indian market this year. The steam turbine generator market in the country is expected to be around 10-12 GW per annum over the next 10 years.
