Reliable Generators for Any Application

 

With more than 10,000 generators shipped around the world to diverse applications, we understand the operational challenges and the performance promises our customers need us to keep. So we offer a complete range of configurations and cooling technologies to help meet your unique performance specs. We follow through on our engineering with manufacturing and service, so you get generator solutions that perform at or above specifications to keep your operations up and running. 

 

Cooling Technologies

  • GE GEN-A (air-cooled) generators are an ideal choice for power system applications that demand simple, flexible operation 
  • GE GEN-H (hydrogen-cooled) generators, with low gas density, high specific heat, and high thermal conductivity, are excellent when your goal is higher efficiency
  • GE GEN-W (water-cooled) generators do the job efficiently, and within a small footprint, when high-output requirements exceed the cooling capabilities of air-cooled or hydrogen-cooled generators
