generalelectric It isn’t easy being the world’s most efficient jet engine. Luckily for us, the surface coolers inside the fan module of the GEnx-1B engine help cool off some of that #winning steam. #GE #avgeek 1d

generalelectric What goes into the world’s most efficient jet engine? #GE’s GEnx-1B engine houses 18 unique carbon-fiber composite fan blades that reduce weight and increase efficiency. Video shot at our #aviation test operations facility in Peebles, OH. #avgeek #jetengine 3d

generalelectric #GE’s aviation test operations facility is where #jetengines go to take a licking, but keep on ticking. Here’s a sneak peek of the GEnx engine being prepped for a final production run before being sent off to the airframer. Photo shot by @seenewphoto at Peebles, OH. #GE #avgeek 1w

generalelectric The GE90-115B heads into an indoor test cell for a production run where it has to go through rigorous testing and endure conditions it will likely never see in service – like golf ball-size hail and exploding jet engine fan blades. The GE90-115B engine has a front fan that’s 128 inches in diameter and carries the world’s first ever carbon fiber composite fan blades. You can find these #badass machines strapped to the sides of Boeing’s 777-300ER, -200LR, and 777 Freighter aircrafts. #aviation #avgeek 1w

generalelectric #GE’s Peebles Test Operation Facility produces over 1,400 engines a year. Among these is the GE90, the world’s most powerful turbofan jet engine. With a record-setting 127,900 lbs of thrust, the #badass machine is a legend among engines everywhere. #avgeek #aviation 2w

generalelectric The CF34-8C5 mounted atop a test stand in Peebles, OH. The CF34 engine family has helped revolutionize the #aviation industry as the premier engine for regional jets such as the Bombardier CRJs and Embraer E-Jets. Fun Fact: Peebles has 11 test stands and covers an area equal to nine of New York City’s Central Park. #GE #avgeek 2w

generalelectric It takes tough love to test a jet engine. Site 7 at #GE’s test facility in #Peebles, OH subjects engines to grueling takeoff and landing trials to prepare them for commercial and military use. #avgeek #transportation #aviation 2w

generalelectric A close-up shot of the Turbulence Control Structure (TCS) @GEAviation facility in Peebles, OH. The structure is made up of 300 flat aluminum honeycombs and perforated stainless steel plates, weighing roughly 30,000 pounds. Photo shot by @seenewphoto. #avgeek #aviation 3w

generalelectric The Death Star-like turbulence control structure (TCS) is placed in front of an engine to keep conditions and air flow around the jet engine controlled. In other words, the sphere serves as a wind shelter for controlling wind intake during simulations of engine distress.

generalelectric Looking into an inlet of the GEnx. This is the second #GE jet engine to sport carbon fiber composite fan blades, and incorporates next-generation 3D aerodynamics shedding about 350 pounds from the engine. Photo shot by @seenewphoto. #avgeek 3w

generalelectric A view of the external wiring and piping on a GEnx engine. The GEnx is the fastest-selling, high-thrust #jetengine in GE Aviation history. Photo captured by @seenewphoto in an indoor test cell at our Test Operations Facility in Peebles, OH. #GE #avgeek 4w

generalelectric Flying high! After assembly, each production engine is run throughout the entire flight envelope — from takeoff to cruise to landing — before being shipped to an airframer for installation on an aircraft. The GEnx powers the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Boeing 747-8 aircraft. Photo shot by @seenewphoto. #GE #avgeek 4w

generalelectric A GEnx engine prepares for a production run as it’s brought into the indoor test cell, locked into frame and suspended from the ceiling. The engineers then measure the amount of force the #jetengine puts on the building and converts it to thrust. Photo shot by @seenewphoto at our Peebles, OH facility. #GE #avgeek 1mon

generalelectric Hey #avgeeks! We’re heading to Peebles, OH for an inside look at our #aviation test operations facility. Here’s a shot taken by @seenewphoto of the inlets to the two test cells that accommodates large commercial engines, such as the GEnx and GE90. Look out for more photos on our feed in the coming days. #manufacturing 1mon

generalelectric Over the town with a subtle breeze, the @ge_renewableenergy turbines spin with ease.

Sustainable, reliable, and affordable electricity is generated from our intelligent wind farm to power homes and buildings.

Tap through our winter wonderland and see why it takes more than a little holiday magic to ensure our Digital Snow Globe village runs just right.

generalelectric If you take a walk on a silent night, you’ll be captivated by our Northern Lights.

The colors dancing against the sky are a major attraction during the holiday season. Myth has it that the lights were the visual inspiration for the @ge__power Digital Twin. Despite that never being confirmed, the village is calm, the village is bright, all thanks to our brilliant turbine’s might.
