GE introduced the world to F-class gas turbine technology in 1989. Today, GE powers the globe with more than 1,100 installed F-class units, producing more than 260 GW of power in 58 countries. The F-class features 99 percent reliability, and an 11-minute fast start enables increased revenue and dispatchability during peak demand.

Customer Value Through Low Lifecycle Cost

The 7F.04 features an enhanced compressor and hot gas path cooling and sealing technologies, improving both performance and durability.

Proven Technology and Unprecedented Performance

Building on a 25-year legacy of F-class operation, the 7F.04 supports a broad range of applications, and offers the widest fuel flexibility in its class.

Total Flexibility

Only turbine in its class to burn Arabian Super Light, 15% C2, +20/-10 percent Modified Wobbe Index (MWI), 5 percent hydrogen.

7F.04 Gas Turbine (60 Hz)

F-class gas turbines were the first to achieve 50 million operating hours, 1 million starts, single-digit NOx emissions, a firing temperature greater than 2,400˚F, and operation with Arabian Super Light (ASL) as a fuel.

  • Applications include power generation, cogeneration, and industrial power
  • 99 percent reliability that delivers the power you need during peak demand
  • 3D aerodynamic hot gas path for enhanced performance
  • 18-stage enhanced compressor for improved performance, maintainability, and operability
  • Low fuel pressure requirements that reduce need for on-site fuel compressor
  • Industry-leading Dry Low NOx 2.6 combustion system lowers emissions, offers flexibility on a wide range of natural gas or distillate fuel
  • 29 percent turndown in 2x1 combined-cycle applications that enables wider operation range, provides spinning reserve capability, and lowers fuel burn when operating at reduced load
  • Single crystal materials and directionally solidified blades that extend maintenance intervals and lengthen component life
