///GE LM5000 gas turbine

GE LM5000 gas turbine

The LM5000 was introduced in 1977 and used primarily for power generation and mechanical drive applications, delivering approx. 35 megawatts with 38% thermal efficiency.

The LM5000 gas turbine has been replaced with the newer LM6000 that has higher simple cycle output & efficiency. The LM6000 models also have higher reliability and availability levels than the previous LM5000 models.
