About the GE MS7001:





The General Electric MS7001 is a single-shaft, axial-flow, heavy-duty, industrial-design 60 Hz gas turbine with a power output (in simple-cycle operation) in the range of 85 to 172 MW, depending on model - or up to 400 MW combined cycle.



Application:

Utility and industrial power generation installations, including cogeneration and combined-cycle plants and mechanical load drive duty.



Sponsor:

The MS7001 was privately developed by General Electric.



Status:

In production.



Total Produced:

A total of 1,797 60 Hz MS7001 gas turbines of various types have been manufactured and installed.



Competition:

The 60 Hz General Electric MS7001 faces competition from gas turbines built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Siemens Westinghouse.



Outlook:

1) Production activity currently increasing, although power installers are maintaining a cautious order pattern; 2) STAG-cogen packages are particularly attractive for U.S. customers; 3) Model 7FB and 7H production to rise noticeably in the decade; and 4) 7FA projected to remain the most popular model in the MS7001 Family, especially in the U.S.
