A view of Stargate, the nickname for the massive grid simulator at the new wind turbine testing facility at Clemson University. Here, the world’s most advanced rig for trying and validating wind turbine drivetrains will put GE’s next-generation turbines through their paces.
The Evolution Series is the most efficient locomotive GE has produced to date. If every train on the tracks were powered by an Evolution Series, the annual reduction of smog-producing pollutants would be like taking 48 million cars off the road.
GE Evolution series locomotives are powerful enough to pull 170 Boeing 747 jetliners, but are also more fuel efficient than other North American locomotives. But these powerhouses aren’t just cool; we think they look pretty cool, too. We commissioned designer Matthew Hawkins to make a papercraft version. Now with a few cuts and some folds, we can all put this badass machine right on our desks.
