 At the General Electric Gas Turbine factory, engineers  design, produce, test and repair gas turbines for generating electricity. These turbines weigh more than 900,000 pounds and can create internal combustion temperatures up to 2,900 degrees F. Depending on the model, one of the GE turbines can produce enough electricity for half a million American households.
