Turbine Technology Services Corporation (TTS), a full-service gas turbine engineering services firm based in Orlando, Florida, will be participating at the 2012 7EA Users Group and Conference, providing an opportunity to connect and share knowledge with engineers, maintenance and operations staff from the top companies in the power generation industry.

As a leader in gas turbine engineering, TTS actively participates in industry conferences and turbine user groups such as 7EA to engage both current and prospective clients who operate heavy duty gas turbines manufactured by GE.

The niche setting offered by the 7EA Users Group is a long-awaited event by power plant managers and gas turbine operators, whose capital investment in this type of equipment requires keeping up with the knowledge and best practices of companies like TTS.

With an installed base of several thousand machines, the GE MS7001E/EA is an established workhorse of the electrical generating sector, thanks to its reliability, flexibility, emissions and efficiency.

"Most 7EA users have seen a drastic increase in operating hours over the past couple of seasons primarily due to lower fuel prices and elevated temperatures," said Frank Hoegler, Vice President of TTS. "This situation has attributed to the need for improved reliability on their machines and systems and TTS has the knowledge and experience needed to support the fleet in a range of reliability upgrades and improvements."

TTS is expected to participate in various scheduled events, including the vendor fair where 7EA users will have an opportunity to interact with each other to explore opportunities for financial savings, regulatory and compliance enhancements, safety and security, and other related competencies.

Representing TTS at the 7EA Users Group will be Mitch Cohen, Lisa Delliacono and Kevin Giroux, who will be exhibiting in the expo floor at booth number 41.

As regular participants at 7EA, the TTS team will be showcasing its conversion, modification and upgrade offerings, as well as many of its gas turbine services.

Year after year, the 7EA Users Group also doubles as a "class reunion" for industry veterans, where they can update each other on their companies’ developments and explore new business opportunities in the areas of turbine engineering services, retrofits and upgrades for 7EA turbines and related systems.

The 2012 7EA Users Group and Conference will be held on October 23-25 at the Embassy Suites Greenville Golf Resort & Conference Center in Greenville, South Carolina.
