ETN is a membership, non-profit association which brings together the turbomachinery community for power generation and mechanical drive applications in Europe.
ETN addresses the main challenges and concerns of gas turbine users in committees and individual projects, composed of experts across the entire value chain: power generation and oil & gas companies, OEMs, R&D institutes, suppliers, service providers and technology consultancies. It has a wide international network and experience in coordination, communication and dissemination activities on EU and private funded projects.
ETN believes a common strategy and research effort between all stakeholders, along with supportive EU energy and research policies, will enable growth and increased competitiveness of the gas turbine sector in Europe and globally.
