Company History

 

ADT was established in 1999 as a joint venture between University College London and The Ebara Research Co. Limited of Japan.  Before the establishment of ADT, the joint venture parties were involved in a comprehensive R&D collaboration for 9 years in the application of the Inverse Design Code TURBOdesign-1 to Centrifugal Compressors, Pumps and Axial Turbines.
