The rugged 9F.03 heavy-duty gas turbine delivers efficiency, flexible operation, and reliability in one proven solution. With greater than 99 percent reliability and broad fuel flexibility, the 9F.03 delivers consistent performance in a multitude of diverse applications, ranging from industrial cogeneration to aluminum smelting.

Flexibility and High Performance Together

The rugged 9F.03 and 9F.04 deliver efficiency, flexible operation, and reliability—and the eight-month delivery cycle gets you up and running fast.

Rapid Response to Changing Conditions

Faster start times—up to 20 minutes in simple-cycle and 30 minutes in combined-cycle—along with better availability and high fuel flexibility.

9F.04: Lowest Lifecycle Cost in its Class

Advanced Gas Path (AGP) provides the 9F.04 with enhanced performance, additional output, and improved efficiency.

9F.03/9F.04 Gas Turbine (50 Hz)

With more than 200 installed units worldwide, and an excess of 12 million operating hours, the 9F.03 and 9F.04 heavy-duty gas turbines are excellent for a wide range of applications.

  • Improved survivability from grid disruptions and load transients
  • OpFlex AutoTune, which improves Dry Low NOx (DLN) operability and eliminates firing-temperature suppression
  • 18-stage compressor with variable inlet guide vanes to reduce degradation and stress on wear-related components 
  • DLN 2.6+ combustor provides dual-fuel capability and enables turndown to 35 percent of baseload in simple cycle
  • Three-stage hot gas path (HGP) turbine has advanced cooling and sealing improves efficiency and provides lowest lifecycle cost in its class
  • More than 97 percent average start-up reliability
  • Improved compressor that increases reliability and availability, while reducing periodic inspections and maintenance costs
