EVI-GTI is a membership organisation for the Gas Turbine Instrumentation Community. Created in response to a need for a focal point and greater coherence in the sector, the organisation results from a 3-year EU funded GROWTH project.
In a market place that demands improved engine products, reduced cost of ownership, shorter time to market and with a rapidly growing interest in “by the hour” type service agreements, there is a need for gas turbine manufacturers to focus their attention and resources on core competencies, reduced costs and increased operational flexibility and speed. The resulting use of already limited resources in these areas means that the development of advanced sensors and sensor technologies is likely to shift towards specialists (universities, research organisations and instrumentation supply chain companies) who are innovative, have considerable existing experience and understand the route to commercial exploitation.
EVI-GTI, with its web-based ‘virtual’ infrastructure, spans organisational, cultural and geographical boundaries, improves collaboration and communication, and aids the alignment of strategic aims, enabling the maximisation of resources.
EVI-GTI seeks to serve the whole of the Gas Turbine Instrumentation community:
- Manufacturers of gas turbine engines and turbo systems
- Instrumentation supply chain companies
- Research institutes and universities
- Users of industrial gas turbines
