Swipe to see how photographer James Sakalian captures the Arctic Princess, a Norwegian LNG tanker, in a series of Polaroids. This ship transports natural gas from Statoil's Hammerfest facility, which is partially powered by five #GE LM6000 gas #turbines , to customers around the world. When full, tankers like the Arctic Princess can carry enough fuel to power 45,000 homes for a year. The distorted perspective of the panorama comes from capturing the moving ship using a camera that requires pulling the sheet of film after each shot. Photos by @jsakdas3rd
#FromWhereIStand , we wouldn't be #GE without the amazing women in #STEM who drive #innovation . Business has a critical role to play in improving gender #diversity and #representation in STEM for the betterment of individuals, innovation and the global economy. Thank you for helping us celebrate #WomenInTech . The view from here looks promising—we're dedicated to being even better.

In honor of Pi Day, can you guess the circumference of the rotor on this Haliade #wind#turbine ? Hint: the rotor’s diameter is 150 meters. That’s enough to fit three full-sized soccer fields. Located offshore near Ostende, Belgium, the Haliade turbine can produce enough energy to power over 5,000 homes and save 21,000 tons of CO2 during its lifetime. Without pi, we wouldn't be able to #engineer and #manufacture cutting-edge renewable #energy#technology like this. #happypiday
This prototype of a 300-foot "space frame" tower is one tough climb, but its design—metal latticework coated in fiberglass—makes the shipping and assembly of #wind#turbines more efficient. The tower can support a rotor the size of the London Eye and a 2.75 megawatt turbine. Because of its unique design, it can also bring #power to previously inaccessible places.

It only takes one look at this GEnx engine to feel its power. But its 18 carbon-fiber composite fan blades actually save 350lbs of weight, increasing the engine's efficiency. As a #FanGirl and Engine Test Engineer at our jet engine testing facility in Peebles, OH, Margaret Polen helps make this #innovation possible. At #GE , we're fans of powerful technology and #DiversityInSTEM . #BalanceTheEquation Photo by @seenewphoto
