Reset & Upgrade: Hydropower Plant Upgrades

GE's solutions offerings can adapt to each plant owner’s specific needs.


Optimize your existing asset and prevent forced outages.

GE can replace or recondition major components to restore original performance levels, extend plant life and optimize plant layout.

Refurbishment projects are planned specifically for each plant and include the replacement or reconditioning of major components along with further plant rehabilitation or renovation to reset performance.

“Pit Stop” for Generators

Based on a Formula One® best practice, our refurbishment module includes a speedy “Pit Stop” option for generators aiming to reduce downtime.

Compared to a traditional process, the “Pit Stop” approach can significantly reduce downtime, with an average lead time reduction of up to ~75 %.
