2020년 출시 30주년을 맞은 7F 가스터빈은 전세계 약 1,000여 기에서 5천만 시간 이상의 누적 운전시간으로, 수백만 가정과 기업에 전력을 공급하는 성공적인 제품으로, 업계의 새로운 표준을 제시했다. 저유가 시대를 맞이하여, 가스발전의 경제성과 환경성능이 재조명되고 있다. GE파워는 이에 맞춰 가스터빈의 대용량 및 고효율화, 연료의 다양성 그리고 하이브리드(Hybrid) 발전에 중점을 두고 있다.
Need a gas turbine repair? Time to fire up the plasma torch. Our @ge__power repair engineers in Greenville, SC use these torches to rebuild metal that gets worn down from regular wear and tear in the field. A quick melt from the torch, a sprinkle of powdered metal, and the parts are looking good as new #engineering#gaspower#gasturbine#energy
If you had X-ray vision, how would you use it? These GE Research engineers use it to capture data from lower-than-surface-level errors in additively manufactured metal parts. Here, they’re analyzing that data, inspecting every layer of metal to find the source of the error. This process helps them design smarter software for additive manufacturing machines. Which means better, stronger parts. That's a pretty good use of a superpower, if you ask us. #AdditiveManufacturing#Data#3DPrinting
New winds are blowing off the coast of Yorkshire, where @gerenewableenergy just signed a deal to provide 190 Haliade-X 13 MW units for the first two phases of the Dogger Bank wind farm. This deal marks the first contract agreement for GE’s Haliade-X platform, a 13 MW uprated version of the successful prototype in Rotterdam. With a 220-meter rotor and 107-meter blades, the Haliade-X is the world’s most powerful offshore wind turbine in operation. #renewableenergy#wind#windturbine#windfarm#engineering#renewables
Precision is when you’re building 107m long wind turbine blades. Just ask the engineers at @gerenewableenergy ’s LM Wind Power blade factory in Cherbourg, France. As experts in their field, they manufacture high quality blades for a variety of wind turbine models. But when it comes to these blades for the Haliade-X, they really pushed their craft to new lengths. #RenewableEnergy#WindTurbine#Manufacturing#WindPower
If you’re looking for a new oven to perfect your sourdough bread, this isn’t it. Filled with argon or nitrogen, these giant ovens are actually used to cure additively manufactured metal pieces after they’re printed. #additivemanufacturing#3DPrinting
