Notre Dame, Doosan Heavy Industries to Develop Compressors for Gas Turbines


By Editors of Power Engineering

The University of Notre Dame’s Turbomachinery Laboratory announced a 19-month, $2.5 million agreement with Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co. Ltd. For compressor research and testing.

The ultimate goal of the partnership is to support the development of a 300-MW power generation gas turbine.

The testing will take place at NDTL’s 10-MW compressor test cell, which is under construction for operations this fall. When finished, the laboratory will house one of the largest compressor research facilities at any university in the world.

All design, analysis, fabrication and testing will take place in the laboratory. Notre Dame noted this agreement continues to expand its capabilities in the commercial power industry.

“The opportunity to work with a global leader like DHI is a testament to the unique research and testing capabilities of NDTL and the University as a whole,” said Joshua Cameron, director of NDTL. “With the world-class capabilities we are building, our facility will be able to support any manufacturer in research and development for the next generation of turbomachinery products.”
