Reciprocating Engines

IDGTE is focused on reciprocating engines used for power production or marine propulsion. These engines come in various speeds with the larger higher output units operating at lower speeds:

  • High speed (>1,000 RPM), <4 MW
  • Medium speed (400-1000 RPM), 1-25 MW
  • Low speed (<400 RPM), 1-80 MW

Gas Turbines

IDGTE is focused on gas turbines used for power production, which are primarily aero-derivative type or heavy duty type. Aero-derivative units are compact, responsive units derived from the aviation industry, while heavy duty units are larger units engineered specifically for high output power production.
