Gas turbines convert chemical energy bound in natural gas into mechanical energy. For example, they are used to drive power plant generators, a subject studied by students of mechanical engineering at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). For education purposes, Siemens AG has now made available a cutaway model of the gas turbine SGT5-8000H. Representatives of the media are cordially invited to come the hand-over on Friday, March 8, 17 hrs, at the seminar room of the Institute of Thermal Turbomachinery (building 30.60/61) on KIT Campus South.


Being “The Research University in the Helmholtz Association”, KIT creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is the objective to make significant contributions to the global challenges in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about 9,800 employees cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in natural sciences, engineering sciences, economics, and the humanities and social sciences. KIT prepares its 22,300 students for responsible tasks in society, industry, and science by offering research-based study programs. Innovation efforts at KIT build a bridge between important scientific findings and their application for the benefit of society, economic prosperity, and the preservation of our natural basis of life. KIT is one of the German universities of excellence.
