MTU Aero Engines has stake in GE's new LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbine

Munich, June 26, 2008 – More power and less emissions: General Electric (GE) has uprated its LM6000 gas turbine and unveiled two derivative models — the LM6000-PG with single annular combustor and the LM6000-PH with a dry low emissions combustor. MTU Aero Engines, Germany's leading engine manufacturer, is a risk-and-revenue sharing partner of GE with 13 percent share of the LM6000 program and the new derivative models. "Including spare part sales, that adds up to sales of 1.2 billion euros through the life of the contract," explains Dr. Anton Binder, senior vice president, commercial programs at MTU.
