Thread regarding General Electric Co. layoffs

Any news about the LM9000 program?

Any news about the LM9000 program? I would like to know if anybody has information about that program. I work at Aviation ( LM9000 is an aeroderivative engine) and I was asked to work in that program but I do not want to end working in a doomed engine.

Dumb a-- I meant any sensitive information about the program. Not the publicly available specs someone just parroted

If that info was company sensitive they wouldn't have put it here:

Every one else do discuss company sensitive information on here, maintain your professionalism

The LM9000 is an aeroderivative gas turbine producing 67-75 MW and 42% efficiency in simple cycle. It's based on the GE90 jet engine that powers the Boeing 777. It can be used for mechanical drive applications or 50/60 Hz generation with no gearbox needed. Time from start to full load is 10 mins. Available for order now, 36k hr intervals. Cost is approx $24 million.

To OP, if this is an alternative to layoff, take it and find out more when you are in while looking for other opportunities. If not, then that depends on your alternative and it really is not a discussion that should be happened here.

Program is partially funded by Italian regional government, so it's not going to die till that pot runs dry. Whether it will succeed depends on those that work on it.

Any news about the LM9000 program? I would like to know if anybody has information about that program. I work at a competitor to GE ( LM9000 is a possible GE engine we've heard of) and I was wondering if GE will have that program. Schedule and cost information would also be helpful.

if the program isn't chopped, I assume wherever the LM6000's are being built. Also, didn't Aviation just announce late last year that they are shifting 700 engineers from commercial to military programs?

It'll probably be built in either Hungary or Greenville, they closed the Houston plant that used to build Aero, but along with it went all the shop guys that knew how to make the thing work. Good luck!
