  • Higher efficiency and lower emissions – these are the key objectives in the development of modern turbomachinery. Heat-resistant materials, complex geometries and integral components are but a few of the features of turbomachines. New approaches are required along the entire life cycle to meet future challenges in manufacturing as well as in maintenance, repair and overhaul.

  • In the medium and long term, power generation will still be mainly dependent on fossil fuels, since renewables can only cover percentages of today’s electricity demand. This is the reason why it is essential for the automotive, aerospace and energy sectors to develop new emerging concepts that are capable of significant decreases in the emissions and reductions in the fuel consumption.
