GE Oil & Gas to Supply Gas Turbines for Motiva Port Arthur Refinery Expansion

Posted on November 14, 2008

GE Oil & Gas has been awarded a contract to provide gas turbines for the Motiva Port Arthur Refinery Expansion Project, which will create the largest refinery in the United States and one of the top 10 in the world. This will mark the first U.S. installation of the Frame 6B generator packages manufactured by GE Oil & Gas.

The GE gas turbines will be equipped with dry low emissions technology, which will help Motiva reach its goal of reducing emissions by mitigating the emissions produced during the combustion process.

The GE Frame 6B gas turbines for this expansion are rated at 42.1 megawatts each and will be used to power a variety of refinery processes. The units were produced at GE Oil & Gas facilities in Florence, Italy and have arrived on site in Texas.

GE Oil & Gas’ Frame 6B gas turbine-generator offers proven reliability and is one of the most versatile and widely used gas turbines ever manufactured, with more than 900 units in service worldwide.
