TTS Completes Fast-Track Project for Power Plant Control Building Replacement

Category: Uncategorized

TTS has successfully completed the commissioning of a replacement plant control building provided on an emergency basis to an Independent Power Producer (IPP) in West Africa. The replacement was urgently required following a fire that completely destroyed the existing cab.

Within 12 weeks of order, TTS engineered, procured, assembled and tested the complete control building including TMS-1000 gas turbine controls, generator controls, MCCs, black start diesel controls, main power transformers, MV breakers, and all other auxiliaries required for operation of a complete 35mW power barge. Due to urgent power replacement needs, the building was sent using an Antonov air freighter. TTS then sent a team of commissioning experts to install and commission the cab within 3 weeks of arrival in country.

According to TTS President Tony Thornton; “TTS’ long-standing relationship with this client assured them we were the only company capable of providing this equipment safely, and correctly engineered in such a short time-frame.”
