As the world’s first jet engine to include 3D-printed parts, the CFM LEAP is a blend of advanced manufacturing techniques. 3D-printed fuel nozzles and fan blades woven from carbon fiber composites (CMCs) helped make the LEAP stronger and lighter. #FunFact thanks to CMCs, each fan blade is strong enough to hold the weight of a wide-body aircraft, while shedding 500 pounds per engine.

A fish-eye-view of a Haliade 150-6MW wind turbine. This one is located about three miles off the coast of Block Island, RI at America’s first offshore wind farm. Building just one of these turbines is a feat of manufacturing and logistics. Head to our Story for an inside look at our latest offshore project involving 66 wind turbines like the one pictured here. Photo by @daviddoubilet

Additive techniques have transformed manufacturing at every phase – from intricate design to complex builds. Though this miniature 3D-printed engine is a model, the advanced manufacturing techniques that produced it have allowed us to build real aircraft engines with more efficiency and greater durability. The CFM LEAP, for example, is 15% more fuel efficient than its predecessors thanks to 3D-printed fuel nozzles.

With GE Digital software, this facility can track its manufacturing processes in real-time and even predict when a piece of equipment needs maintenance. Photographer @seenewphoto illustrates these speedy insights with a clever trick of the lens. Head to the link to learn more.

What’s behind the eye of a CFM LEAP engine? Looking inside, you’ll see 3D-printed fuel nozzles, engine shrouds made from light and heat resistant space-age materials called ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), and nickel-alloy compressor blades grown from a single crystal. Photo by @cntalbot

A quiet moment overlooking nacelles awaiting shipment at the port in Eemshaven, Netherlands. From afar, it’s hard to imagine the power of these giants. Each nacelle holds the beating heart of a Haliade 160-5MW offshore wind turbine — a generator capable of powering 5,000 homes. Photo by @finn

Building the rotor of a GE Haliade 150-6MW wind turbine takes some heavy lifting. At our facility in Saint Nazaire, France, we assemble around 30,000 pieces to form the nacelles for these offshore wind turbines. Here photographer @finn captures the action on the factory floor. Head to our Story Highlights for more.

Here’s an inside look at the completion of an epic journey. Now you can see 66 GE Haliade 150-6MW wind turbines spinning in the North Sea at Merkur offshore wind farm. Getting them there was no simple task — from manufacturing 198 blades and building each nacelle from some 30,000 components to the complex logistics of transporting and installing such massive turbines. Head to our Story for behind-the-scenes footage of building one of the largest offshore wind farms in Germany.

How many tugboats does it take to move a roughly 18,000-ton station? Three tugboats transported the DolWin3 converter platform, pictured here, to its destination in the German North Sea. Now installed, it can switch between alternating current (AC) generated by offshore wind turbines to high-voltage direct current (HVDC). This unique technology sends enough energy back to shore to power about 1 million German homes. Head to the link in our bio to learn how.
