GE (NYSE: GE) Oil & Gas has renewed an agreement with China Aviation Gas Turbine Ltd. (CAGT) to continue supplying GE10-1 gas turbine engines and control panels for use in power generation in oil and gas plants and coke oven gas applications in China and abroad through customers whose headquarters are in mainland China.
The original agreement between GE and CAGT was signed in 2002 and renewed in 2007. The new agreement covers the next five years, with a possible option to extend it for another three years, and also includes a services section. Since 2002, GE has sold a significant number of these units to CAGT that now account for nearly one third of the global installed fleet of GE10-1 gas turbines.
GE provides GE10-1 flange to flange gas turbine engines and Mark Vle control panels to CAGT, who integrates them into gas turbine-generator packages and sells them to end customers under the brand name QD-100. The flange-to-flange equipment is supplied from GE Oil & Gas facilities in Florence, Italy and the control panels are supplied from GE facilities in Salem, Va. CAGT’s manufacturing is based in Shenyang, with the company headquarters in Beijing.
“CAGT is a major player in gas turbine packaging and servicing in China. Our relationship with them has opened the door to establish our GE10-1 technology in China’s revitalized gas turbine industry,” said Prady Iyyanki, president and CEO—turbomachinery equipment for GE Oil & Gas.
In addition to the industry sectors already being served, GE and CAGT also are exploring new opportunities in offshore platform power generation.
