Project overview:

Weld Assembly of Large Castings

Awardee:

GE Renewable Energy

Started:

Q3, 2022

Technical Challenge Area:

Supply and Logistics

Completed:

Q2, 2024

Synopsis:

The proposed concept aims at the development and qualification of a robust joining process for large-thickness iron castings. As welding of iron castings becomes mainstream-approved technology, suppliers will be able to split these large geometries at identified locations into smaller casted se

Target Outcomes:

1
Identify the qualification needs for welding castings and establishing the cost model to quantify the benefits of the proposed approach.
2
Evaluate the candidate welding processes and pursue comprehensive characterization. Down selection between the candidate process will be performed based on performance
3
Report on the final sub article weld process design and qualification study with conclusions on risks and rewards of the process
