Wood Group GTS has completed two steam turbine inspections and received awards for three additional steam turbine outages from five US power plants. The cumulative $4.2m in services are scheduled to be completed in the first half of this year.

A steam turbine outage requires thorough component inspections, expedited repairs and a detailed project plan that incorporates the ability to replace damaged parts within the scheduled outage window. Wood Group GTS provides a single point of contact to manage the project, a core team of skilled technical specialists and inspectors, mobile tooling containers and the on-site consumable kits needed to meet customer expectations.

Wood Group’s Power Plant Services president Frank Avery said: "With a focus on the overall outage schedule, quality and cost management, we apply our core value of safety, our extensive years of experience and a full tooling and equipment package to complete maintenance events.

"As a leading provider of steam turbine outage services, our experienced field service team performs over three million hours a year of on-site maintenance for all major steam and gas turbines."
