Wood Group GTS has been awarded an agreement to supply parts for 14 General Electric Frame 6B gas turbines located at various sites in Oman. Under this 12-year contract, all GE Frame 6B new components will be exclusively sourced through Wood Group GTS. To support this contract Wood Group GTS will rely on its advanced parts manufacturing programme (APM®).
In addition, Wood Group GTS will assist its customer to model overall new parts demand for their fleet, allowing optimization of parts usage based on several factors. Under the agreement there is an option to purchase dry low NOx components also. All these gas turbines are used in the process for efficient extraction of natural gas from established gas fields.

Our ability to either manufacture or source parts and components to fit the operational needs of our customers’ power facilities results in a successful outcome,” said Frank Avery from Wood Group GTS.
