TTS Completes Control System Modernization Project in Mexico

Category: Uncategorized

TTS has recently installed and successfully commissioned a new TMS-1000 gas turbine control system on two MS5001 gas turbine generators at a steel mill in Monclova, Mexico.  With this upgrade the original OEM gas turbine control system was replaced with a new digital PLC based control system.  As part of the upgrade the hydraulic gas fuel control valves were replaced with new high-speed ElectroFlo® Electronic fuel valves thereby eliminating the need for maintenance intensive hydraulic servos resulting in better fuel scheduling to the turbines.

With these upgrades the gas turbine generators will improve the reliability of power production to the mill during peak load demands.

TTS, headquartered in Orlando, Fla., is a full-service engineering firm that specializes in products and services for the heavy duty and aero-derivative gas turbine industry. TTS offers a complete range of engineering services including; consulting, project management, plant design, and construction and unit relocations. The firm’s comprehensive capabilities allow gas turbine owners and operators, utilities, independent power producers, and private sector enterprises to obtain total turbine services from one source.
