SENSOR APPLICATIONS FOR TURBOMACHINERY: GE OIL & GAS AND SANT’ANNA SCHOOL TECIP INSTITUTE LAUNCH JOINT LAB. IN FLORENCE

The regional authority of Tuscany is committed to supporting innovation and the manufacturing sector that have the potential to benefit consumers and investors. GE Oil & Gas and Sant'Anna School Tecip Institute (Communication Technologies, Information, Perception) in partnership with Infibra Technologies spinoff company launched a joint laboratory in Florence to explore areas to co-develop monitoring techniques and special sensor solutions for turbomachinery, with a particular focus on asset condition monitoring, optimization and diagnostic software. Three institutions globally renowned in science, engineering, and business that combine know how, expertise, technology and models to enhance asset performance by detecting and predicting.

GE Oil & Gas and Sant'Anna School Tecip Institute strengthen their cooperation on science, technology and innovation and enhance knowledge sharing through joint laboratory improved coordination. Massimo Messeri, president of Nuovo Pignone; Paolo Noccioni, general manager for engineering - GE Oil & Gas ; Pierdomenico Perata, rector of Sant’Anna School; Massimo Bergamasco, director of Sant'Anna School Tecip Institute and Monica Barni, vice president of Tuscany Regional Authority, participated in the Turbomachinery Sensor Technology Lab. inauguration ceremony.

Advanced sensors, and in particular optical sensors, have come through advances in sensing applications and have enormous potential for future solutions for turbines and compressors. The optical sensors represent a technological revolution that will deliver more and more intelligent machines, simplifying over complex processes and introducing concepts of predictive maintenance, new technologies and new tools for diagnostics ensuring greater efficiency and reliability. Solutions that have been tested in Florence joint lab. may be applied to several products in GE Aviation and GE Power sectors, creating new business and employment opportunities for the manufacturing industry in Tuscany
