GE has further expanded its Oil and Gas business' portfolio capabilities with the inauguration of a new $3M investment subsea equipment testing facility in Warsaw, Poland, opened in partnership with the Warsaw Institute of Aviation and Engineering Design Center.

The new Warsaw Subsea Test Lab provides GE Oil and Gas with increased capacity for the testing and qualification of subsea equipment for its global Drilling and Production operations, increased support of sales activity in Poland and across Central Europe, as well as highly talented, experienced engineers.

"GE is a strategic partner to the Warsaw Institute of Aviation and this year we have celebrated the 10th anniversary of our successful cooperation. The opening of the new GE Oil and Gas subsea test facility is a result of our close relations and place trust into the world-class engineering capabilities we have in Poland. This is also a unique opportunity for our engineers to develop a strong expertise in such complex projects as the subsea oil and gas extraction," said the Managing Director of Warsaw Institute of Aviation, Witold Wisniowski.

Based on an engineering alliance agreement between GE Aviation and the Warsaw Institute of Aviation, the Warsaw Engineering Design Center was established in 2000 and has grown from just 20 engineers to more than 1,000 engineers collaborating in the development of world-class aviation, energy and oil and gas technologies. The last ten years brought gradual rise of employment and development of engineers' capabilities while closely cooperating with the best Polish technical universities.

John Lammas, Vice-President-Engineering, GE Oil and Gas said: "The new test facility will help GE remain at the forefront of reliable innovation in the oil and gas industry. At GE Oil and Gas, part of our strategy is to deeply embed an aviation mindset in terms of safety and reliability. Working together with GE Aviation and the Warsaw Institute of Aviation at these superb new subsea testing facilities, GE Oil and Gas will continue to build successfully on the Polish aviation industry's legacy of engineering excellence to help solve our customer's toughest technical challenges."

GE Oil and Gas will use the new Warsaw Test Lab for the qualification of existing drilling and production products, product line extensions and new product introductions for its Drilling and Production business. Subsea equipment that will be tested in the lab includes valves, seals, flanges, spool pieces and riser connectors. This new investment presents GE's commitment to partner with Poland and confirms the company's trust into the country's strong engineering capabilities and skills.
