Big deal for small power gen

Already proven in applications around the world, the GE5 gas turbine has evolved into the new NovaLT building on the latest design advances from our highly successful NovaLT development program. NovaLT5 is a compact solution for a wide range of power generation, mechanical drive, and industrial applications. It is available in single-shaft and double-shaft configurations, both with high efficiency, extended MTBM and significantly lower operating and maintenance costs.

Compact & Efficient

GE’s NovaLT5 gas turbine is a welcome new alternative for a wide range of small power generation and mechanical-drive applications. Both the single-shaft and double-shaft configurations are compactly designed, making them ideal for operations with challenging footprint and height restrictions. The high exhaust temperature of the NovaLT5-1 is particularly advantageous for Heat Recovery System (HRS) operations.
