GE H-Class turbines help power plant operators with renewable energy transition

SINGAPORE – July 29, 2021 – GE (NYSE: GE) today celebrated its record-setting H-Class heavy duty gas
turbine fleet—the fastest growing fleet in its class—has secured more than 50 customers across 20
countries, generated more than 26 gigawatts (GW) of power, and accumulated more than 1,000,000
commercial operating hours. Since the launch of its flagship HA gas turbine in 2014, followed by the first
unit in commercial operation in 2016 with record-setting combined cycle efficiency, GE’s HA gas turbine
has helped power plant operators reduce emissions, increase efficiency, retire coal-fired facilities, and
integrate greater levels of renewable energy.

“GE meticulously engineered our H-Class turbines to be an industry leader and help power plant
operators thrive in the complex world of the energy transition, providing reliable and sustainable power
today and being well-positioned as a destination technology for years to come,” said Amit Kulkarni,
Head of Product Management for Heavy Duty Gas Turbines of GE Gas Power. “GE is advancing flexible,
efficient, and reliable gas power generation solutions as gas is best-suited to complement renewable
energy. We are proud of the momentum, progress, and collaboration with our HA customers as we
celebrate this milestone with them.”

In 2021, Southern Power Generation’s 1.4-GW Track4A Power Plant, a natural gas–fired power plant in
southern Malaysia that is equipped with the first commercial GE 9HA.02 gas turbines—one of the
world’s largest and most efficient power-generating models—was recognized by POWER Magazine as
their “2021 Power Plant of the Year” and by Diesel & Gas Turbine Worldwide as “Power Plant of the
World” for “a meaningful model for balancing climate awareness, energy affordability, and reliability in
power-hungry Southeast Asia.” In addition, the role of GE’s HA technology adopted at China Huadian
Corp’s Juliangcheng plant was recognized for its accelerating role to retire existing coal-fired capacity
and replace it with new, high efficiency combined cycle with POWER Magazine’s “Reinvention Award”.

Additionally, GE recently announced new HA-powered pilot projects focused on demonstrating power
plants capable of operating on hydrogen. GE’s H-Class gas turbine portfolio currently has the capability
to burn up to 50% by volume of hydrogen when blended with natural gas. This capability is enabled by
the DLN2.6e combustion system that is standard on current 9HA.01, 9HA.02 and 7HA.03 gas turbines
offerings. Hydrogen is not the only path for decarbonizing gas turbines. GE’s H-class Combined Cycle
Plants can also be configured with a post-combustion capture system to reduce CO2 emissions by up to
90%.
