GE’s Waukesha Gas Engines

Flexible and durable Waukesha* gas engines from GE are designed to perform reliably in isolated, mission-critical and demanding applications. By offering both rich- and lean-burn designs, GE provides a range of products covering varying emissions compliance levels to help you make smart choices for tomorrow.

Waukesha engines range from 160 to 5,000 bhp and include the following models:

  • VGF*: 1,200 to 1,800 RPM, 160 to 1,175 BHP
  • VHP*: 700 to 1,200 RPM, 345 to 2,250 BHP
  • 275GL+*: 750 to 1,000 RPM, 2,720 to 5,000 BHP

Waukesha engines primarily are used in the oil and gas industries in applications such as gas compression, mechanical drive and power generation.

Known for their superior fuel gas flexibility, these engines operate on fuel gases from less than 200 BTU/ft3 all the way up to HD5 propane @ 2,350 BTU/ft3.

With rich-burn, lean-burn, turbocharged, naturally aspirated, high fuel gas pressure, low fuel gas pressure, low compression and high compression options available, Waukesha gas engines can be matched to each individual application.
