Turbine Technology Services Corporation (TTS), a full-service gas turbine engineering services firm based in Orlando, Florida, is extending its global reach in Asia with the delivery of two TTS CMS-1000 portable combustion dynamics measurement systems (CDMS), for customers in Jinjiang, China.

Gas Turbine power plants in the Asian nation are presenting an opportunity for TTS, whose customers operate Frame 9F DLN2+ GE gas turbines that require the monitoring of emission levels and periodical tuning.

TTS developed its CMS-1000 combustor dynamic monitoring system to meet the needs of advanced class gas turbine operators for a reliable and rugged dynamic pressure measurement and analysis system and it is specifically tailored for measuring dynamic pressure pulsations in gas turbines with dry low NOx combustion systems.

The CMS-1000 can be portable or permanently installed and the data used to keep the combustion system optimized, as well as maintaining gas turbines at the lowest possible emission levels.

Equipment tuning can be done manually or thru an auto tune function and TTS will be providing training to its customers on their new equipment – thus offering a complete solution that ensures its optimal operation.

Training will be conducted by Mr Mitchell Cohen – a recognized industry expert in emission system tuning – and will include the commissioning of the portable systems, as well as training on the use of the CMS-1000 system and analysis software for tuning and optimizing the units’ combustion systems.

The CDMS installed by TTS will help Chinese customers maintain their GE gas turbines’ dry low NOx (DLN) combustion systems at peak performance, as these combustion systems have been designed to meet today’s stringent emissions control guidelines.

“China’s energy market offers great opportunity for companies that have a strong understanding of GE equipment like we do,” says Pat Begley, VP of sales for Africa, the Middle East, and Asia at Turbine Tech. “We expect TTS gas turbine engineering services and products to continue to increase in demand as China’s power generation equipment continues to age.”

China is a major player in the world’s energy market – both as a producer and as a consumer – and the country’s power plant and energy infrastructure often seeks the expertise of foreign companies like TTS for their leadership and innovation in the modernization of their equipment and compliance with emission control demands.

TTS has been involved in numerous product developments worldwide and China offers this global engineering company the opportunity to expand its reach into an energy market that is expected to grow, which means that demand for its modernization, retrofit and application services will be increasing in years to come.
