Today, #GEInstaWalk is headed to Orange Blue Terminal in Eemshaven, Netherlands for an inside look at the very beginnings of the installation process. Here, the nacelles, towers and blades for our Haliade wind turbines met for the first time. They’re now being loaded into the first vessel destined for Merkur Wind Farm—a huge milestone in the lifecycle of our Haliades. Photographers @nk7, @floatfish and @finn join us to capture the excitement. Head to our Story for more behind the scenes, and tune in Monday for a look at how additive manufacturing is bringing the production of commercial jet engines to the next level. Video by @nk7

The next #GEInstaWalk stop has stolen our hearts. Here at GE Offshore Hub in Saint-Nazaire, we make the nacelles that shelter our Haliade wind turbine’s generator and other equipment. Photographers @nk7, @floatfish and @finn are helping us capture the engineering that goes into producing these nacelles. Eventually, the nacelles—and the some 30,000 components they hold—will keep the blades turning at Merkur Wind Farm. Head to our Story for more behind the scenes, and tune in Friday to see where the pieces of the wind turbines for the Merkur Wind Farm will meet for the first time. Photo by @seenewphoto

Welcome to #GEInstaWalk with photographers @nk7, @floatfish and @nicanorgarcia! Our first stop is @lmwindpower in Castellón, Spain to see an inside look at the blades for our Haliade 160-5MW offshore wind turbines headed to Merkur Wind Farm. Longer blades require stronger and more flexible components, so even though these blades are hollow, made from lightweight polyester fiber, they weigh between 29-30 tons and measure 73 meters long. Head to our Story for behind-the-scenes photos, and tune in Wednesday to see the brains of the turbine. Video by @nk7

#DYK our factory in Auburn, Alabama was the first factory in the world for 3D printing jet engine fuel nozzles? There, we make nozzles for our LEAP jet engines, which contain nearly twenty each.

The outdoor test stand at Peebles, OH looks like the stuff of science fiction. But it's part of how we rigorously test our jet engines to ensure they're ready for flight. See the magic of this real-world engineering on the #GE9x at the link in our bio. Photographer @dankhole captures this unique selfie in front of the stand.

A shell of what will soon be a GE MRI machine is placed inside the thermal shield. The shield helps maintain the extreme temperatures needed to keep helium a liquid (almost absolute zero). It's part of how our MRI magnets make do with 1% of the helium that traditional MRIs require. Photo by @seenewphoto.

Staring into the eye of our LEAP engine—the world's first jet engine with 3D-printed fuel nozzles and cutting-edge ceramic matrix composites (CMCs). #TBT to the 2016 Farnborough Airshow, where photographer @cntalbot captured the LEAP.

#DYK the GE90 is the most powerful jet engine in the world, with the quietest rumble of any engine in its thrust class. Acoustic panels installed in the engine's fan case, pictured here, help reduce its noise signature.

4x the speed of sound. That's how fast these robotic arms can shoot particles with their supersonic nozzles. Through a process called cold spray, they blast surfaces with metal powder particles to help build 3D-printed shapes. Learn how #GE engineers used cold spray to repair the gearbox on a GE90 jet engine at the link in our bio.

Our #machinecrushmonday goes out to the Advanced Turboprop (ATP) #jetengine—our first #3Dprinted commercial aircraft engine, which recently completed its inaugural test. Using the latest innovations in technologies like #additive manufacturing, #GE engineers were able to combine 855 small, separate components into just 12 larger pieces. That means greater power and fuel efficiency. Head to the link in our bio to learn more about this game-changing engine. GIF by @geaviation #aviation #aviationart #additivemfg

At the Sangone Lab in Italy, we test components, power gearboxes, drive systems and low pressure #turbines for several of our #jetengines, including the #GEnx. Here a low pressure turbine mounted on a cold flow rig is being prepped for a vibration measurement and analysis test.

This sleek new #windturbine blade is getting ready to embark on the ultimate road trip, from @lmwindpower's facility in Castellón, Spain to Merkur offshore wind farm. The blade is four times longer than a bowling lane and the largest ever produced in Spain. That's 241 feet of record-breaking #engineering. Head to the link in our bio for more.

We’re bringing in the #newyear at #GE with a look back at a few of our favorite moments from 2017. Swipe through to see highlights from #DRONEWEEK, #BalanceTheEquation and more. Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy New Year!

Snow-capped mountains offer a picturesque backdrop for British Columbia's largest wind farm, Meikle. With 61 #GE #windturbines, it's capable of powering 54,000 homes.

A wind turbine's workday doesn't end when the sun sets. Here's a #droneseyeview of Meikle Wind Farm, where 61 #GE wind turbines help generate enough #renewableenergy to power up to 54,000 Canadian homes.

These seven fans, 250 horsepower each, are part of how we simulate the harshest conditions when ice testing our #jetengines. Pictured here outside our testing facility in Winnipeg, Canada, the fans deliver 2,800 pounds of cold air per second, creating 60 mph winds. Photo by @noahkalina #avgeek #aviation
