Advanced Thermal Mapping for Gas Turbines of the Future

As the move towards a hydrogen economy becomes more prominent, SCS aims to be at the forefront of helping achieve Net Zero in the gas turbine industry. The transition from fossil fuels to hydrogen-powered engines will require the redesign of gas turbines and SCS' technology will provide this data much faster than any other technology accelerating the market entry of new engines. The novel thermal history technology revolves around three pillars – the smart material, unique instrumentation, and the digitization using robotics – which enables high-definition temperature mapping with thousands of data points.
