GE Teams With Toshiba

Posted on September 27, 2011

Using the backdrop of PowerGen Asia, GE and Toshiba announced a memorandum of understanding in which the two companies have agreed to mutually promote new combined-cycle power plants with GE Frame 9FB gas turbines incorporating GE’s FlexEfficiency technology and Toshiba’s high efficiency steam turbine-generators for projects in Japan and other Asian countries, as agreed upon by GE and Toshiba.

“Both GE and Toshiba see rich opportunities for our FlexEfficiency offering in Japan and elsewhere in the Asia region over the next few years,” said Paul Browning, president and CEO – thermal products for GE Energy. “By facilitating the integration of more renewable energy into the power grid, this technology is a good fit for countries like Japan that are turning to renewable solutions, such as wind and solar, to meet more of their power needs.”
