During the event, GE showcased its 9E max gas turbine upgrades, H-Class gas turbines, ultra-supercritical steam technology, renewable energy portfolio and smart grid solutions to the visitors.

Organised by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), WETEX focused on showing latest developments in conventional and renewable energy across the world, with featuring business opportunities and potential partnerships to drive the business.

Under the theme ‘The Future of Power Generation,’ the company showcased new technologies at WETEX 2017, that are expected to provide greater efficiency, flexibility, sustainability and savings for the power sector.

GE’s 9EMax gas turbine upgrade solution aims to help to cut annual fuel costs by as much as US$5mn, while creating the potential for up to US$6mn in additional revenue. Its cross-fleet portfolio of solutions further aims to support more than 90 original equipment manufacturers’ (OEM) brands of gas and steam turbines, generators, boilers and other balance-of-plant equipment, according to GE.

The H-class technology is expected to offers more than 63 per cent combined cycle efficiency and leads to the remarkably cost-effective conversion of fuel to electricity. Its ultra-supercritical steam technology, powered by Germany’s coal-fuelled power plant, will be deployed at DEWA’s upcoming Hassyan Clean Coal Power plant.

In addition to it, the company further displayed its 4.8-158 onshore wind turbine, GE’ss LV5 inverter, which is being deployed by DEWA at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, its advanced smart grid solutions and much more.

Joseph Anis, president and CEO of GE’s Power Services business in the Middle East and Africa, said, “The power generation industry in the UAE and wider Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is focused on enhancing efficiency, diversifying the energy mix, lowering costs and modernising operations through digitisation to meet the region’s growing energy needs.”
