GE LM gas turbines
General information about the GE LM1600 LM2500(+) LM5000 LM6000 LMS100 engine types.
The General Electric LM1600 is an industrial and marine gas turbine, a derivative of the F404 aircraft engine series. The LM1600 is a simple-cycle, two-shaft high-performonce engine and delivers 15 MW with a thermal efficiency of 37%.
The General Electric LM2500/+ is a widely used industrial gas turbine. It is a derivative of the General Electric CF6 aircraft engine and considered to be one of the most reliable industrial gas turbines ever.
The LM5000, derived from the CF6-50 aircraft engine, was introduced in 1977 and used primarily for power generation and mechanical drive applications, delivering approx. 35 MW with 38% thermal efficiency.
The General Electric LM6000 is a simple-cycle, two-shaft, high-performance gas turbine that is derived from GE’s CF6-80C2 high bypass turbofan aircraft engine, proven as one of the most economical aircraft engines currently in service.
The LMS100 is a simple-cycle, three-shaft gas turbine that uses intercooling technology to increase power and efficiency. At more than 100 MW and 46% efficiency, the LMS100 provides the highest level of performance of any aeroderivative gas turbine today.
