Werner-von-Siemens Centre for Industry and Science (WvSC) HTA 2.0 - Hochtemperaturanwendungen

The Werner-von-Siemens Centre for Industry and Science is based in Berlin's future location Siemensstadt 2.0 and sees itself as a dynamic research cooperation at the open heart of production. The diversity of the partners makes the cooperation excellent. The planned co-creation enables effective research through short distances. The research fields address the technological challenges of industrial manufacturing, the energy transition and the mobility transition.

A central feature is the holistic approach: away from the individual approach to the system approach. The link to real manufacturing enables this holistic view from the user's perspective - a major advantage, because they want new insights that make a difference for society and for Berlin.

With climate change in mind, there is a strong focus on decarbonization in the High Temperature Applications (HTA) research project. Here, both additive manufacturing processes and additively manufactured components can make a major contribution to making the central energy supply more sustainable. In the gas turbine power plant, a hot gas jet with temperatures of well over 1000 degrees Celsius drives the blade wheels on the turbine shaft - this is how the energy is generated. The turbine blades and all other components that come into contact with the hot gas must be well protected from the extreme heat, e.g. by direct cooling of the component. Additive manufacturing can be used to implement innovative cooling concepts that are not technically feasible using conventional manufacturing processes. Objectives: Development of new additive manufacturing processes for high-temperature components in large gas turbines.
