An order for two GE 7F.05 gas turbines and one GE D600 steam turbine with the EPC responsible for building and commissioning the expansion of Alliant Energy’s Riverside Energy Center in Beloit, Wisconsin. With a generating capability of more than 700 MW, the expansion will generate the equivalent power needed to supply more than 535,000 U.S. homes. The 7F.05 gas turbine’s superior flexibility makes it a great fit to compliment the increase of renewable sources in the region. GE will also provide a 20-year contractual services agreement for the project.

A $35 million turbine generator equipment and technical support order for Grand River Dam Authority’s Grand River Energy Center in Oklahoma. In July, the Center suffered a severe lightning strike, which initiated a fire causing catastrophic damage to the 520 megawatt (MW) Unit 2 turbine generator. GE’s Power Services will restore the turbine generator to service using GE’s repair centers around the world, illustrating the Company’s global capabilities.
Multiple Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) orders with U.S. customers worth more than $20 million. These include unit agreements with Dynegy and Oglethorpe Power for performance upgrades and enhanced analytics.
