Concepts NREC - News/Press Releases

White River Junction, VT, USA – May 28, 2015Concepts NREC, the world’s leading full service turbomachinery design and development company, is pleased to announce the renewal of its partnership agreement with GasTurb GmbH. The agreement enables Concepts NREC’ s worldwide organization of direct offices and partners to offer GasTurb™, a powerful and flexible gas turbine cycle program, to customers. “GasTurb is established as one of the premier tools worldwide for gas turbine cycle analysis and it has been a key part of our Agile Engineering Design System® for decades,” Concepts NREC’s Vice President and General Manager of Software, Dr. Peter Weitzman, said. “We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship. Now that GasTurb is developed by a team of engineers and established as a private company, this will insure that development of the code keeps up with the state of the art of gas turbine engines.”

Over the past 20 years, GasTurb has been developed by Dr. Joachim Kurzke - a well-known gas turbine performance specialist. In 2013, he and Professor Peter Jeschke, head of the Institute for Jet Propulsion and Turbomachinery at the RWTH Aachen University, Germany, formed a private company, GasTurb GmbH. Due to this strong partnership, a team of engineers will guarantee the development of all GasTurb products. The latest version of GasTurb models diverse applications in more detail than ever, and users are able to calculate the first cycle within seconds after loading the program.

Representatives from Concepts NREC and GasTurb GmbH will be available to discuss the latest version of GasTurb as well as the rest of our software, engineering and manufacturing services at Booth 900 of the ASME Turbo Expo in Montreal June 15-19, 2015.

About GasTurb GmbH
GasTurb GmbH was founded in 2013 in cooperation with the Institute of Jet Propulsion and Turbomachinery at RWTH Aachen University. The history of the GasTurb software program is much older: it began in the early 1990's when the original author Dr. Joachim Kurzke had the idea to build a program that gives a thorough insight into gas turbine theory while being easy to operate. GasTurb is now one of the leading software tools for people in the gas turbine industry including engine maintenance companies, operators of air, land and sea-based gas turbines, consultants and research organizations. The software is also exceptionally well suited for teaching at universities.

About Turbo Expo
Now in its 60th year, ASME Turbo Expo is recognized as the must-attend event for turbomachinery professionals. The technical conference has a well-earned reputation for bringing together the best and brightest experts from around the world to share the latest in turbine technology, research, development, and application in the following topic areas: gas turbines, steam turbines, wind turbines, fans & blowers, Rankine cycle, and supercritical CO2 applications.
