GE Dis­trib­uted Power (GE) has an­nounced the lat­est en­hance­ment to its Wauke­sha 275GL+ lean-burn gas en­gines, the 275GL+ with ESM2. With a cur­rent lead time of less than 20 weeks, this new gen­er­a­tion pro­vides a high-per­for­mance and eco­nom­i­cal al­ter­na­tive for cus­tomers in the oil and gas mid­stream in­dus­try with com­pres­sion needs for gath­er­ing, pro­cess­ing and trans­porta­tion ap­pli­ca­tions.

Wauke­sha 275GL+ gas en­gines are of­fered in a 16-cylin­der model, rated at 5000 bhp, and a 12-cylin­der model, rated at 3750 bhp. This lat­est gen­er­a­tion of the 275GL+ rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant en­hance­ment for the largest Wauke­sha gas com­pres­sion en­gine plat­form.

“We fo­cused our pri­or­i­ties on im­prov­ing fuel flex­i­bil- ity, alti­tude ca­pa­bil­ity and low­er­ing NOx emis­sions for this lat­est gen­er­a­tion of the Wauke­sha 275GL+ gas en­gine fam­ily. A low com­pres­sion ra­tio pis­ton de­sign cou­pled with larger tur­bocharg­ers and the lat­est ESM2 en­gine con­troller for Wauke­sha gas en­gines were in­stru­men­tal in get­ting us th­ese im­prove­ments,” said Dr. An­dreas Lip­pert, Gen­eral Man­ager Prod­uct Man­age­ment at GE’s Dis­trib­uted Power busi­ness.

The lat­est 275GL+ en­gine achieves 0.3 g/ bhp (140 mg/Nm3) NOx emis­sions lev­els while main­tain­ing flex­i­bil­ity to of­fer full power up to 1550 Btu/ft3 (58 MJ/ Nm3) and at al­ti­tudes up to 6000 ft (1829 m).

The 275GL+ now also comes with ESM2, the next-gen­er­a­tion Wauke­sha gas en­gine con­troller and full-colour touch­screen.
