Photographer @nk7 captures a rarely-seen view of wind turbine blades awaiting shipment. Transporting these massive blades is no easy task. Each blade must be hoisted on a pair of specialized trailers, and hauled to a port some 30 miles away. See where they now spin at the link in our bio. #Merkur#windturbine#renewableenergy#renewables#energy
Photographer @jeffreymilstein captures one of five GE Haliade 150-6MW wind turbines spinning at the Block Island Wind Farm. The powerhouse of this turbine sits in a component as large as a school bus. Its blades reach 27 tons, and its tower rises about 100 meters above the water. Together, these turbines generate enough energy to support 90% of the island’s electrical demands. #Haliade#BlockIsland#windturbine#renewableenergy#energy
Here’s the GE9X rigged to a test stand at our facility in Peebles, OH. During testing, its unique features are put to work. 3D-printed nozzles spray fuel inside the combustor. The engine shroud, built from a material called ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), captures and channels white-hot air at twice the strength of its predecessors. And 16 carbon-fiber composite fan blades spin inside the 11-foot fan. Watch the 9X endure testing at the link in our bio. #GE9X#Peebles#aviation#CMCs#3Dprinting
A night shot of the GE9X secured in a test cell at our facility in Peebles, OH. Its world record-breaking front fan spins 11 feet in diameter with 16 carbon-fiber fan blades. Air streams through the fan blades to the compressor, which operates at a 27:1 pressure ratio—no other commercial engine in service has a higher pressure ratio. Learn more about what makes this engine so unique at the link in our bio. #GE9X#aviation#aviationphotography#aviationlovers
