GE books more order in shrinking gas-powered plant market, beats Siemens

General Electric Co., the American Multinational Conglomerate headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, had booked the most orders in the sharply narrowing market of gas-powered power plants over the first quarter of 2019, and beaten utility majors such as Siemens and Mitsubishi along the way, at least three people familiar with the subject matter had unveiled on Tuesday, the 14th of May 2019.

Despite the New York-incorporated multinational conglomerates latest morale victory over its arch-rivals in terms of power-plant orders, GE had been met with sheer competitions over the recent past, thwarting GE Chief Executive, Larry Culp’s effort to turnaround the General Electric’s bedridden power unit.

According to an industrial report seen by a press agency and at least three sources familiar with the orders, GE had booked six orders for its HA-class turbines during the first quarters, while its rival MHPS (Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems had booked five and Siemens AG had received four orders.

Latest standing had been pointing towards an intensifying battle for orders over the most efficient ‘advanced class’ generators ever, capable of flowing powers through thousands of homes at a much cheaper cost.

Nevertheless, orders for gas turbines, which had fallen by half since 2014, would likely to decline further, as utilities are now relying more on solar, wind and power conservation, analysts suggested.
