About City

NextORC project team

The NextORC project brings together two research groups at City, University London. The Turbomachinery group specialise in small-scale turbomachinery for power generation, whilst the Compressor Centre are a leading research center in the area of screw machines. With expertise in both technologies, City is in a unique position to conduct and deliver this research because of the accumulative expertise of the academic staff and the existing experimental and computational facilities and infrastructure.
