Turbine Technology Services Plays Key Role in Global Power Plant Maintenance
Turbine Technology Services Corporation (TTS), a full-service gas turbine engineering services firm based in Orlando, Florida, will attend the 2011 7FA Users Groups Annual Conference in Houston, Texas, where a senior company engineer is scheduled to make a technical presentation addressing the maintenance and servicing of GE ‘F’ class combustion systems.
The 7FA Users Group event is of key importance to the power industry as there are over 1,000 ‘F’ class gas turbines in operation worldwide in power plants and at facilities that depend on this equipment for energy generation.
TTS has been a regular attendee of the 7FA Users Group over the years and the company continues to increase its involvement in the event, which caters to a captive audience of power plant managers, gas turbine engineers and vendors from the power engineering industry.
As a forum of energy experts and equipment users, 7FA offers TTS an important launch pad for its products and services, giving the company an opportunity to share information on best practices and specialized knowledge of benefit of the turbine users’ community.
Based on this premise, Mitchell Cohen, senior systems engineer for TTS, is scheduled to deliver a presentation on 4 May 2011, from 5pm to 5.45pm in the Post Oak Room, covering operational issues affecting F-class combustion systems.
“TTS offer several services to the GE 7FA market including control system retrofits, field services and combustion system optimization, including the CMS-1000™ combustion system monitoring equipment,” said Frank Hoegler, VP of sales for the Americas at TTS. “We see the GE Advanced technology gas turbine market as the most significant area for growth for TTS in North America.”
With an exceptional track record covering millions of operating hours, ‘F’ class gas turbines are a staple of power generation companies and industrial co-generators who demand reliability and flexibility in fuel selection, cycle configuration and site adaptation.
Mr Cohen, an expert with over 20 years’ experience on combustion systems and emissions control for industrial gas turbines, has been with TTS since 1999. Formerly a combustion design engineer at General Electric, Mr Cohen holds seven patents on design and operation of advanced technology gas turbine combustion systems and is highly respected throughout the power generation industry.
The GE 7FA users meeting and annual vendor fair will be held 9-12 May 2011 at the Westin Galleria Hotel in Houston, Texas.
