The gas turbine development history of Sweden is exciting. By international comparison Sweden and its gas turbine manufacturers are small but can nevertheless claim periods with the worlds highest output, or highest efficiency large industrial gas turbine respectively.

Sweden has always created its own military aircraft and fitting, high performance engines are developed in Sweden in license cooperation with large international manufacturers. The Swedish Air Force ranked number four in the world during the 60s.

Pioneering contributions were also made with small gas turbines, such as high speed turbogenerators in hybrid propulsion systems for cars and trucks.

Professionals know that gas turbine development success does not come easy. A lot of setbacks have to be mastered. The size of the crew is not always significant in the process.
