Founded in 1985, under the name of Scientific Research and Technological engineering Center for Aviation Engines, COMOTI has become in 1996 the Romanian Research and Development Institute for Gas Turbines.

COMOTI - Romanian R&D Institute for Gas Turbines is the only specialized unit in Romania that integrates scientific research, design, production, experimentation, testing, technology transfer and innovation in aviation turbine engines, industrial gas turbine engines and highspeed palette machines.

COMOTI operates in 4 areas:

  • Aviation and Space
  • Energy and saving energy
  • Environment
  • Defense

Main research directions:

  • Aviation turbines;

  • Increasing thermal efficiency and emissions reduction produced by gas turbine engines, including new types of turbine fuel, cogeneration, unconventional energy, improving energy efficiency for natural gas compression systems;

  • Environmental protection, including noise reduction in aviation turbines and industrial turbines, waste water treatment plants, aeration systems for the biological treatment of waste water.

  • Defense and National Security by designing, developing and testing new naval propulsion systems dedicated to Romanian Navy frigates.
