During more than 100 years engineers of the Swiss development center of A.-G. BBC Brown, Boveri & Cie., from 1988 onwards ABB Asea Brown Boveri Ltd, in 1999 ABB ALSTOM POWER Ltd and now ALSTOM Power Ltd in Baden, Switzerland have significantly contributed to the achievement of todays advanced gas turbine concept. Numerous “Firsts” are highlighted in this paper — ranging from the first realization of the industrial, heavy-duty gas turbine in the 1930s to todays high-technology Gas Turbine (GT) products, combining excellent performance, extraordinary low environmental impact with commercial attractiveness for global power generation. Interesting connections could be unveiled for the early parallel development of industrial and areo gas turbines.
