Power generation technology research and development

Georgia Institute Of Technology : 20 July, 2000  (New Product)
The program includes more than 20 projects in mechanical, aerospace and materials engineering, electronics and computer engineering, and other Web-based applications. The work will take place predominantly at Georgia Tech by its faculty and the Georgia Tech Research Institute, which includes post-doctorate and graduate students. Additional R&D will be done at GE Power Systems' Energy Services division in Atlanta, at GE's Gas Turbine plant in Greenville, S.C., and at GE Power Systems and the GE Corporate Research & Development Center in Schenectady, N.Y. as appropriate.
The Georgia Institute of Technology and GE Power Systems will collaborate on power generation technology research and development. GE Power Systems plans to contribute $3.75 million to the interdisciplinary program.

'Georgia Tech has enjoyed working with GE Power Systems on other research and development projects, but we are particularly pleased for our faculty, staff and students to have an opportunity to work with GE on a program of this magnitude,' said Jean-Lou Chameau, dean of Georgia Tech's College of Engineering. 'This is especially gratifying as GE Power Systems was recently recognized by U.S. Energy Secretary Bill Richardson for the company's recent breakthroughs in improving the efficiency and environmental performance of power generation equipment.'

In Atlanta, GE Power Systems monitors its worldwide fleet of gas turbines from its state-of-the-art Energy Service headquarters.

'GE Power Systems is committed to developing technology that benefits the power industry,' said Jon Ebacher, vice president technology for GE Power Systems. 'Our relationship with Georgia Tech will result in technology that will enhance both our business and Georgia's technical expertise in the field of power generation and energy services, ultimately benefiting power customers worldwide.'

Other universities where GE Power Systems, along with GE Aircraft Engines and GE Corporate Research & Development, works on research and development projects include the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the California Institute of Technology, Purdue University, Stanford University, the University of Massachusetts, and the University of Connecticut.

GE Power Systems is one of the world's leading suppliers of power generation technology, energy services and management systems with 2000 revenue estimated at more than $14 billion. The business has the largest installed base of power generation equipment in the global energy industry. GE Power Systems provides turnkey equipment, service and management solutions across the power generation, oil and gas, distributed power and energy rental industries.
