Parker Hannifin Gas Turbine Filtration joins ETN Global Group

June 13, 2023

Parker Hannifin, Mayfield Heights, Ohio, US, has announced that its Gas Turbine Filtration division has become a member of the ETN Global organisation, a non-profit body dedicated to supporting the clean energy transition through technology development, networking, and knowledge sharing. A key objective for the organisation is to accelerate the environmental changes to energy systems through development, demonstration, and deployment of safe, secure, affordable, and dispatchable carbon-neutral energy solutions by 2030.

“With a focus on the development of new, clean combustion technology, ETN Global is supporting the development of low-carbon energy production from flexible and reliable gas turbines,” stated Gerald Woodward, Parker Gas Turbine Filtration: Global Marketing Manager. “Despite the boom in renewable energy, conventional gas-fired power generation will continue to play a strategic role in the future energy system. That’s why knowledge sharing is so important for tomorrow’s clean energy world. We’re thrilled to join the ETN association and look forward to supporting ETN and its members in furthering the role of gas turbines through the clean energy transition”.

ETN Global works to bring together the entire turbo-energy value chain, featuring more than 120 members from over twenty countries. The organisation encourages and facilitates research & development, information exchange and cooperation between gas turbine manufacturers, operating companies, engineers, academics, and market leaders.

ETN Working Groups include those dedicated to air filtration, exhaust systems, corrosion, and emerging areas of interest, including decentralised energy systems, Additive Manufacturing, hydrogen, and CO2. The groups also include a gas turbine user community that aims to deliver a single independent voice that can articulate user issues and trigger an appropriate response from OEMs, ISPs, and the R&D sector. The independent user groups focus on frequently used gas turbines within both the power generation and oil and gas sectors.

The ETN also produces policy briefings, tailor-made educational courses for the gas turbine user community, and position papers on key issues.

Christer Björkqvist, Managing Director, ETN Global, added, “Our vision for gas turbines to deliver affordable and dependable carbon-neutral energy solutions that can be implemented globally by 2050 relies on our members actively contributing to technology development. As a leading player in the gas turbine industry, Parker Hannifin has a major role in technology deployment, but also the vital research and development capabilities that can advance the global energy business. We look forward to sharing their varied and valuable contributions both within our working group research areas and more broadly across our organisation and between our members. I am very pleased to be able to welcome them aboard as members of ETN Global.”
