A view of our world record-breaking 9HA.01 #gasturbine. In 2016, it won the Guinness #worldrecord in France for its 62.22% net efficiency. A year later, the turbine is now closer to 64% net efficiency, which means more #power, fewer carbon emissions and greater fuel savings.

At GE, we don’t shy away from a big challenge. Blue Energy Europe needs to move a nearly 3,500-ton biomass boiler 1,250 miles to Hürth, Germany. We’re treating the challenge as a larger-than-life puzzle. To get the job done, we’ll disassemble the boiler’s roughly 2,500 pieces, ship them in batches and fit everything back together on-site.

Our version of Route 66. A look at the journey of 66 #GE Haliade 150-6MW #windturbines as they make their way to Merkur offshore wind farm. First stop: the loading dock in Saint-Nazaire, France, pictured here. Once loaded, our Haliade turbines will head to Emshaven, Netherlands before reaching their final destination in the North Sea. When this 400MW offshore wind farm comes online, it will be able to power nearly half a million homes in Germany.

#FunFact: four of our highly efficient GEnx engines power the Boeing 747-8, allowing the massive freighter to travel the length of two football fields in just one second. Photographer @adamsentori captured the 747-8 as it delivered a jet-powered car to the 2016 Farnborough International Airshow.

When working with technology as massive as our #windturbines, you have to be on top of the game. Our new partnership with @apple will bring Predix to smartphones and tablets around the world. So a wind turbine mechanic in Oklahoma can communicate instantaneously with engineers in New York City, for example, to analyze exactly how these larger-than-life turbines are running and solve problems in real-time.

An inside look at the inner workings of the hydro #powerplant in Linthal, Switzerland. Our hydro turbines are part of a unique pumped storage process that turns this power plant into the equivalent of a giant battery lodged in the Swiss Alps. Together, it’s capable of generating 1,000MW of energy in just minutes. Swipe through for a closer look. Photo by @dirka

Imagine knowing exactly when you’ll feel sick, and having access to the best treatments, before you feel any symptoms. That’s kind of the idea behind Predix, our application development platform. At Minds + Machines last week, we unveiled the latest tools and partnerships that will advance the future of the #IndustrialInternet. Hear more from our Chairman and CEO, John Flannery, and watch his live discussion with @microsoft’s Satya Nadella by heading to the link in our bio.

The steam rising off this heat pad may look eerie, but there’s nothing spooky about the GEnx engine. Pictured here, the GEnx completes a nighttime ice test at GE #Aviation in Winnipeg, Canada, where we put our jet engines through grueling tests to make sure they can brave the most extreme conditions. That night in Winnipeg, the temperatures were as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit. #HappyHalloween #jetengine #avgeek

Our #WCW goes out to Kristen Hough, the first female wind technician in western Canada. She is one of our fearless wind engineers, responsible for helping to maintain the electrical and mechanical function of 61 turbines in Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia. At Tumbler Ridge, the wind blows strong enough to rotate our 500,000 pound turbines at 14 revolutions per minute. Combined, that means 185 megawatts of #renewableenergy.

Happy #NationalChemistryWeek! Silicon and carbon don’t always play nice together as elements—they rarely bond in nature. But at the #GE Research Center lab, we use high temperatures and pressures to create silicon carbide (SiC) chips. These revolutionary SiC chips increase efficiency and #power management in power electronics. You can see SiC applied in #aviation engines, #locomotives and #healthcare technology.

#DYK helium is a necessary ingredient to keep an MRI functioning? Liquid helium cools the magnets to minus 452 degrees Fahrenheit, just above absolute zero. But there’s currently a shortage of helium in the U.S. That’s where Freelium comes in. Freelium is advanced magnet technology that only requires 10 liters of liquid helium, whereas conventional MRIs need as much as 10,000 liters. #GE #healthcare

3D printing is more than a process—it’s an engineering art form. Just ask our engineers. Pictured here is the CT7 engine that powers helicopters and turboprop planes. With the help of advanced 3D printing techniques, a team of GE engineers combined what used to be 905 parts into just 16 pieces for more efficient manufacturing. Head to the link in our bio for the full story. #GE #technology #3Dprinting
