GE Energy Moves Production Of Its 50 Hz LM6000 Aeroderivative Gas Turbines To Facility In Hungary


In response to growing international demand, GE Energy has announced the decision to add capacity for its 50-hertz LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbines to a GE manufacturing facility located in Veresegyhaz, Hungary.

“We are shipping more and more LM6000 units to customers throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East. By utilizing the Hungary facility, we can provide our international customers with more localized service and support,” said Charles (Chip) Blankenship, general manager of GE Energy’s aeroderivative division. “Also, this will free up resources at our facility in Houston, Texas to better accommodate increasing demand for the LMS100.”

The Hungary facility, located approximately 20 kilometers outside of Budapest, has been in operation since 2001 supporting the build and repair of GE’s heavy-duty gas turbines. Packaging and testing for both the SAC and DLE models of the 50-Hertz LM6000 can now be completed in Hungary.

GE Energy’s aeroderivative division is a leading supplier of aeroderivative gas turbines and packaged generator sets for industrial and marine applications. The company provides power-generating equipment to utilities, industries and marine fleets throughout the world. It is also the world’s largest and most experienced aeroderivative gas turbine service provider.
