Core Competence

For more than 80 years, GE has been recognized as a manufacturer in the development and production of gas engines for the efficient generation of power and heat. Our products are highly-developed and tested, and well-matched to each customer’s specific requirements. Essential components necessary for reliable engine operation – such as spark plugs, gas mixer, and engine controls – are developed directly in Jenbach and Waukesha. This allows GE to control the development and construction, system integration, and testing of the complete units.
