Six years: GE has benefited more than US $1 billion from the Olympic host city

ge's infrastructure sales revenue from the Olympic host city has exceeded US $1 billion since 2006

ge technology has been used for all official competition venues and commercial facilities of the 2012 London Olympic Games, with a total sales revenue of more than us $100million

ge has provided infrastructure solutions for the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics, the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and the 2012 London Olympics

the Organizing Committee of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games has purchased two Ge gas turbines with advanced technology to provide flexible and fast power services for the Sochi Winter Olympic Games

on July 30, 2012, Ge, the global partner of the London Olympics, announced today that Simon Evans, the global safety, health and environment manager of Victrex, said that the infrastructure sales revenue from the Olympic Games had exceeded $1billion. Since 2006, GE has been working closely with the host country of the Olympic Games, the host city and the organizing committee to provide infrastructure solutions for the Olympic venues, medical centers and surrounding commercial facilities. The technology provided by Ge is designed to support the Olympic Organizing Committee in its goal of hosting a sustainable Olympic Games, improve the infrastructure of the host city, and provide the most advanced medical services to athletes participating in the Olympic Games

ge works closely with the host city to provide a variety of solutions for the Olympic Games, including critical medical care, energy, power, water treatment, lighting and transportation. Said jeffimmelt, chairman and CEO of Ge. The Olympic Games provide an opportunity for each host city to transform. At present, we are committed to working with the IOC and the Olympic Organizing Committees of Russia, Brazil and South Korea to provide advanced infrastructure solutions to help them leave some sustainable Olympic heritage for future generations

ge's projects during the London Olympic Games include:

comprehensive clinic: the 2012 London Olympic Village comprehensive clinic aims to provide high-quality services for athletes. Ge imaging technology equipment includes: magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), including the first large aperture 3.0T MRI in the history of the Olympic Games, computer tomography (CT), ultrasonic diagnostic instrument (u/s), wireless digital medical diagnostic X-ray system (X-ray) Electrocardiograph (ECG), information technology and monitoring system are designed to provide early diagnosis and treatment for Olympic athletes. In particular, curbing building flashover has important theoretical significance

electric vehicle charging: 120 Ge electric vehicle charging piles will provide services for zero emission electric vehicles during the 2012 London Olympic Games and after the event

Olympic Stadium: Ge lighting has provided 14000 lights for this stadium which can accommodate 80000 spectators; GE Energy's uninterruptible power supply and large containerized switchgear will support the opening and closing ceremonies and track and field competitions. In addition to the main stadium, Ge also provided temporary switchgear solutions for 17 other Olympic venues

Olympic Village: during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, a total of 23000 athletes and team staff will live in the Olympic village. Ge digital energy has installed smart meters for residents of the Olympic village to provide power consumption information to help control energy consumption and reduce carbon footprint. GE Energy Management will provide power distribution equipment for athletes' apartments to support the power supply for the Olympic Games. Ge water treatment technology will provide rainstorm drainage for the Olympic village. The R & D and production capacity of large passenger aircraft is an important indicator monitoring system of National Aviation level

Tower Bridge in London: Ge, together with its partners EDF, the city hall of London and the city government of London, transformed the Landmark Tower Bridge in London and installed the most advanced LED energy-saving lighting system. After the Olympic Games, the new lighting system will continue to serve for 25 years, and London will benefit from this project for a long time

bicycle Gymnasium: the bicycle gymnasium, which can accommodate 6000 spectators, will host the cycling field competition of the Olympic Games. Ge provided low-voltage switchgear for the power distribution in the field and uninterruptible power supply to ensure stable power supply during the competition

water sports center: the water sports center designed by zahadid will host a series of most popular competitions during the Olympic Games. The center is equipped with GE's uninterruptible power supply to provide power protection for critical applications

Olympic Park: Ge lighting provides 25000 Tetra powermax LED modules and a necessary number of tetra LED drivers to provide night lighting for the Olympic Park. Ge will also provide more than 200 cardiac defibrillators in the Olympic Park and other venues to provide athletes and the public with health protection anytime, anywhere

energy center: the energy center will provide power, heating and cooling for the Olympic Park, Olympic venues, new buildings and communities after the games. GE's yanbach cogeneration technology (three j620 yanbach cogeneration units) will provide power for the Olympic Games; The project with a total installed capacity of 10 MW is the cornerstone of the sustainable strategy of the 2012 London Olympic Games, increasing the use of alternative energy and realizing the recycling of water

hockey Center: Ge lighting provides architectural lighting solutions for the Olympic Hockey center; During the Olympic Games, the center will accommodate 15000 fans

The infrastructure projects related to ge Olympic Games during the year include:

2006 Turin Winter Olympic Games

ge provided a wide range of products and technologies to support the main venues in Turin, including:

providing lighting for the ice hockey stadium of Turin esposzioni Olympic Games, sestrey ski resort and Turin Municipal Stadium

provide 300 reactors, which can save at least 235000 kwh of power consumption each year; Provide uninterruptible power supply for the municipal venues during the Olympic Games

2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games

ge participated in more than 400 infrastructure projects, covering all 37 official competition venues and 168 commercial facilities in and around Beijing during the Beijing Olympic Games, including:

providing safe drinking water and rainwater recovery and filtration technology for the National Stadium (Bird's Nest)

provide 73 substations to provide power for more than 50 Olympic venues

120 wind turbines will be provided for Zhangbei and Shangyi wind farms in the north of Beijing to supply power to the Olympic central area

2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games

ge participated in more than 120 infrastructure and medical technology projects in Vancouver, including:

two high-tech comprehensive clinics (located in Vancouver and Whistler respectively) to provide comprehensive medical services for all athletes and team staff during the Olympic and Paralympic Games

a 64 row CT scanner was provided for Whistler medical center, which is the first of its kind in the region and will continue to be in service after the Olympic Games; The digital imaging technology provided by CT scanner can help doctors and coaches make more accurate decisions about whether injured athletes should continue to participate in the competition

to provide a more efficient transport system for the Canadian Pacific (601099, Guba) railway company, the official railway transport service partner of the Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. By adopting Ge evolution series locomotives, the emission and fuel consumption are reduced by 40% and 5% compared with the previous generation locomotives

ge and the future Olympic Games

ge is currently working closely with the Olympic Organizing Committee for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games and the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympic Games to provide technical services for the infrastructure construction of the Olympic Games

for example, Ge provided advanced gas turbines for the Sochi Winter Olympics. Two LMS100 Pb aviation reform units using GE's latest emission technology will supply power for the Olympic Games during base load and peak load periods. One of the important advantages of this new technology is that the unit can be started in less than 10 minutes, which is only equivalent to the time it takes to boil a pot of coffee. The project highlights the strong global demand for flexible, low-cost and energy-efficient power generation equipment based on control software
