GES engaged in the EU Programme "Horizon 2020"


We take great pleasure in announcing that General Engineering Solutions has started implementing a project within the confines of Horizon 2020 – the EU Framework Programme – and as a result has become a part of a consortium comprising the most renown and biggest brands in the energy industry.

Many years of experience and the knowledge we possess in thermal, strength and fatigue analyses have helped us earn trust of our business partners, as well as enabled us to become a part of world’s leading companies in our field. The participation in the project will give us an opportunity to enlarge our knowledge in the field of durability of turbomachinery components and will create a number of opportunities to work on new areas in the field of turbomechanics.

In the first stage of the project we will be responsible for conducting destructive tests of turbine discs and developing an algorithm predicting critical speed of disk burst as well as correlation between radial and hoop stress during the burst. In the second stage of the project a Low Cycle Fatigue marking algorithm will be developed for the parts created by using additive manufacture technology (Solid Laser Melting). All the undertaken measures aim at increasing flexibility of turbomachinery, as well as ensuring higher safety at work, at the same time increasing the degree of utilization of components.

It is important to stress that this is a collective success of GES Paweł Kapelańczyk whose whole team deserves recognition for their work. Once again, we have proven that we are able to reach high targets and our knowledge and engagement are the main assets while working on our projects.
