In July, Elliott closed its Barnhart, Missouriservice center, known as Elliott MVP Services. Mike Lordi, Vice President,Global Service, said, “After careful evaluation of ourservice center capacity, we have decided to consolidate the operations of our St. Louisservice center with those of our Crown Point, Indiana service center; Jacksonville , Florida service center, and Elliott’s US Field Service operations.”
Siemens builds on its successful SGT6-5000F gas turbine platform with a step change in NOx emissions while firing fuel oil by demonstrating 25 ppm NOx emissions with water injection. The current industry standard is 42 ppm for other OEM F-Class gas turbines.
Co-Re-based alloys: a new material for gas turbines
May 19 2013 -
It is estimated that future gas turbines will function at temperatures 200⁰C higher than those of today and that the materials currently in use cannot withstand such high temperatures. So there is a need to investigate new materials capable of resisting very severe temperature conditions and the heavy load on modern gas turbines.

Morgan Advanced Materials carried out a project recently in collaboration with an engine original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and a casting foundry, to develop a next generation low bio-persistent Alkaline Earth Silicate (AES) wool insulation that can replace RCF in the casting of gas turbine blades.
GE to supply equipment for 750MW combined cycle plant in Iraq
October 15 2014 -
GE recently signed a contract with ENKA to supply power generation equipment for a new 750MW combined cycle plant being developed by Qaiwan Group in Iraq. GE will provide four 9E gas turbines and one steam turbine for a new power plant in Sulaimaniyah.
Caterpillar's Board of Directors has named Pablo Koziner, 41, currently vice president with responsibility for the Americas Distribution Services Division, as a Caterpillar vice president and the president of Solar Turbines, a global supplier of gas turbine systems and services.
KEPL, a manufacturer of “API process pumps” and API steam turbines, has announced the launch of India’s first indigenously-developed next generation API steam turbine ‘K-Tur’.
K-Tur is said to be among the most efficient single-stage turbines with a wide spectrum of interesting features such as steam shields, blade-tip seals and reusable bearing liners. The steam turbine uses profile blading, which helps in reducing the windage losses, thus improving its efficiency. K-Tur machine is also said to have the facility of installing mechanical seals instead of the normal carbon rings.
1,200MW energy storage project proposed in Utah to support wind power
October 10 2014 -
Four companies have jointly proposed an $8-billion green energy initiative that would link wind farms to an energy storage facility and bring large amounts of clean electricity to the Los Angeles area by 2023. The project would require construction of a wind farm in Wyoming, an energy storage facility in Utah, and a 525-mile electric transmission line connecting the two sites. A key component of the project – a massive underground energy storage facility – would yield 1,200 MW.
