Published on: 

GE Gas Power’s new business line will focus on further developing GE’s control solutions offerings.

GE Gas Power has acquired Nexus Controls from Baker Hughes, a strategic move aimed at integrating aftermarket control system upgrades and field service capabilities. This acquisition leads to the establishment of a comprehensive controls business division within GE Gas Power. Under the leadership of Mani Elango, the new unit will focus on advancing GE's Mark VIe controls systems platform, implementing the OnCore system, and streamlining the delivery and servicing of control offerings.

Users will receive support that promotes consistency and efficiency for both new and maintained units, in addition to a lifecycle approach for addressing their fleet's control requirements. As part of the controls business line led by Mani Elango, GE Gas Power will maintain its investment in the Mark VIe controls product line and other systems and associated products.

"Controls are vital for our customers operating in today's dynamic, competitive energy environment, and the integration of Nexus Controls into our existing offerings will help improve our customers' experience throughout the lifecycle of their plant," said Eric Gray, CEO of GE Gas Power. "This acquisition will also strengthen the quality, service, and delivery of an end-to-end controls experience, brought to life by a single controls business line with world-class talent."


The power generation industry is placing greater emphasis on control technology, as plant operators and utilities must adapt their assets' operational strategies to meet the changing energy system landscape and requirements.
