The first GE Frame 9E gas turbine assembled in China under a technology transfer agreement with Nanjing Turbine & Electric Machinery Co (NTC) has been shipped from the manufacturing facility in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province.

The126 MW machine is the first of four being supplied for China’s Gas Turbine Power Plants Construction Project and will be shipped to the Ge’ermu combined-cycle power plant in Ge’ermu City, Qinghai Province, where it will be part of a combined-cycle system generating nearly 200 MW.

The technology transfer agreement on Frame 9E gas turbine manufacturing was signed between NTC and GE in June of 2004.
