The Institute of Aviation together with Polish universities is creating a common space to conduct a variety of scientific research and tests in the field of energy and aviation. The Gas Turbine Center will be built under joint cooperation. The project has now entered its final phase of implementation.
The building of the new center has been under construction on the premises of the Institute of Aviation since the middle of this year. The construction of the Vacuum Chamber for examining fan and rotating elements of aircraft engines and industrial engines will soon begin.
The main part of the facility will consist of: an Assembly Shop, a Repair Shop and an Innovation Workshop – intended for building 3D models to test new ideas.
The opening of the Gas Turbine Center is scheduled for the beginning of 2016.
Video showcase and detailed description of the investment can be found at: www.gtcenter.pl/en.
The construction of the Gas Turbine Center in the Institute of Aviation is realized within the framework of Operational Programme Innovative Economy, 2007-2013: “Modernization and building a new scientific and research infrastructure at the Military University of Technology and the Warsaw University of Technology for the needs of joint numerical and experimental research on aviation turbine engines”. Project is co-financed by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
