The north German town of Dörpen knows a thing or two about #energy . The Dörpen station pictured here houses transformers, converters and related tech that will use #electricity generated by offshore wind #turbines to feed Germany’s #power grid. For more information on the whole process, head to the link in our bio. Photo by @cntalbot
Our #GE family would like to wish everyone a #HappyEarthDay . Every day, we’re finding innovative ways to maximize #energy efficiency and emissions reductions. That’s what we call Ecomagination, with over 3,000 #scientists engaged in developing earth-friendly #technology across GE at 8 global research centers. Swipe through to see a few of our 74 Ecomagination solutions.
This choppy North Sea surf will soon house a #GE HVDC converter station atop the pylons pictured here. As part of Germany’s DolWin3 offshore grid connection project, the converter station is one step in the process of transmitting electrons 50 miles under the sea and another 50 miles underground—solving a long-distance #power transmission problem to generate 900 MW of efficient #energy .

Soon, the DolWin gamma will sit atop the yellow pylons on the right-hand side of this picture. But what you won’t see is the #GE high-voltage direct current (HVDC) system inside. This #technology helps move #electricity over 100 miles of subsea and subterranean cables from #turbines in the North Sea to Germany’s terrestrial power grid. At peak output, the project will bring enough electricity to supply up to 1 million homes. Head to the link in our bio to learn more. Photo by @cntalbot
Our version of #TransformationTuesday ? First, a photo from the #GE Aviation archive, showing what jet #engine testing used to look like on top of icy Mt. Washington, NH. Swipe to reveal a shot of one of our modern testing facilities in Winnipeg, Canada, where our engines power through ice, simulated blizzards and extreme cold. #avgeek Photo 1 by @geaviation Photo 2 by @noahkalina
