Midstream Delivers 3 Workover Rig Control Packages

TTS MIDSTREAM, a division of TTS Energy Services, recently designed, built, and delivered three workover drilling rig control packages. They worked with an international equipment provider, Highwood Technologies. TTS designed, built, and delivered Remote PLC enclosures, an E-House, ATEX Zone 2 rated operator’s cabin, Field cabling, and Hardware.

 

From concept to delivery, the three-system project took 9 months to complete. TTS, along with their partners, overcame significant supply chain challenges and delivered quality products to the customer in a timely manner. Each of the 3 systems consisted of a fully customized E-house, designed to be carried on the back of a trailer, as well as an Atex Zone 2 rated operator’s cabin. The system comprised of 1-600 Horsepower VFD, 1-800 Horsepower VFD, 1- Two Generator distribution panel, 1- 6 Section MCC, 1-Softstart Cubicle, and a 1-PLC Cabinet with associated interconnect cabling, plugs, and auxiliaries. The TTS Midstream supplied equipment will be integrated with the rig equipment in the US for commissioning and testing. Once commissioning is complete the systems will be delivered to the Middle East.

 

“Out of the gate, this project was a real challenge for delivery. With the supply chain always in flux we worked closely with our customer to provide solutions to be able to deliver a quality product to meet tight deadlines. The communication and interface between the multination team has been amazing and I am very proud of our team,” said Matt Shaw, Operations Manager of TTS Midstream. Shaw headed up all engineering, procurement, and manufacturing activities.

 

TTS Midstream has a long history of providing power and control packages globally as well as offering installation and commissioning services across multiple industries.

TTS Power Delivers Successful Commissioning and Start-up in Ohio Power Plant

TTS Power Completes Major Modernization project on Critical Vintage Power Generation Assets

Orlando, Florida – 9-15-21 – TTS Power, an Orlando-based Energy Services Company, recently commissioned a second Gas Turbine Generator Modernization project in Ohio.  The upgrades will enable the plant to deliver critical power to consumers as standby generation during peak load demand, emergencies and transmission line maintenance.

‌Engineers and Technicians from TTS Power (Dave Simmons, Chris Crowell, Andrew Younker, Eliana Herrera, Wyatt Brooks, C.T. Wilson) recently completed and fully commissioned the 2nd of two Westinghouse 191 Gas Turbine Generator Modernization Projects for a public utility in Northwest Ohio. The modernization project consisted of Turbine and Generator control system upgrades, complete gas and liquid fuel system upgrades, and multiple instrumentation upgrade packages. Over the past year, TTS Power designed, built, delivered, installed and commissioned both units successfully and on time.

 

Control Panel Install
Old System Demo
New Human Machine Interface

 

At a time when the energy market is evolving, legacy oil and gas-fired units are held in reserve to meet peak demand for a few hours each day on the grid or in emergency situations.  The benefits of retrofitting and modifying these units far outweigh the alternative of “putting them out to pasture” as an unused piece of equipment.  The goal of the Ohio-based power plant was to make their assets flexible, reliable and available for energy output when called upon.  The TTS team worked for over a year to install and implement upgrades and modifications to the existing Westinghouse gas/diesel turbine rated at 15,730 kW.

The scope of the project included the following upgrades:

  • Turbine control system upgrade
  • Excitation and generator protection upgrade
  • On-site project management of electrical and mechanical sub-contractors

 

Upgrade PS&G Panel
New Speed Pick-Ups
New Fuel Valve

 

Mechanical Upgrades

  • New gas fuel control valve and instrumentation
  • New liquid fuel control valve and instrumentation
  • Liquid fuel flow divider installation
  • Instrumentation cabinet overhaul – new devices and rewire
  • Turbine speed sensor retrofit – added 5 speed pickups for turbine speed and turbine gear speed


TTS Engineers: Andrew Younker (Front) and Chris Crowell (Back)

TTS’s team of technicians and engineers worked on-site at the power plant to make all of the necessary upgrades and modifications within the project scope and deadline. In response to the job completion, the Power Production Superintendent of the City Utilities Company in Ohio said, “We have thoroughly enjoyed having your team upgrade our Westinghouse generators.  They have accommodated all of our needs and brought a great level of professionalism and customer service that I have not seen from many contractors.  Thanks for everything and I would recommend TTS to any of your future customers.”

Reciprocating Technology Services is Acquired

Reciprocating Technology Services is acquired by the Cooper Machinery Services family of distinguished brands.

Cooper Machinery Services (“Cooper”), a portfolio company of Arcline Investment Management, recently completed the acquisition of RTS, a TTS Energy Services company. Previously, Arcline had acquired Cooper from BHGE. The combined companies were rolled out at the GMRC in San Antonio in October.

“It has been an absolute honor and pleasure to work with the RTS management team, mechanics, field technicians, and support personnel. We all worked hard to start this company and to build a successful brand. Our efforts were clearly recognized by others in the industry.” Said Frank Hoegler, Former President of RTS and Vice President at TTS Energy Services.

RTS operated as an entirely separate division of TTS Energy Services since 2014, and for the past five years, Frank has split his time and energies between RTS and Turbine Technology Services, the sister organization of RTS. “With the separation of RTS, my focus is now squarely on growth for TTS and a smooth transition for RTS.”

“It is high praise indeed that Frank and his team built, in a very short time, an organization chosen to join such an exciting new venture in the gas compression industry. TTS Energy Services management saw this as an opportunity for the RTS operation to grow dramatically and succeed at a scale that would otherwise have taken years to achieve,” said TTS Energy Services CEO, Tony Thornton.

Turbine Technology Services Partners with Voith Establishing Actuator Test Stand

New Workshop at TTS Houston Facility Provides Greater Convenience to Voith’s Local Oil & Gas Clients

Houston, TX (09/04/2018) – Turbine Technology Services (TTS) and Voith recently joined forces to add an actuator, governor and turbomachinery (AGT) test stand at the TTS Houston facility. This development brings a support network of trained technicians to the Houston area, offering greater convenience for Voith’s local oil & gas clients.

TTS opened its facility in Houston in 2016 in conjunction with its sister company Reciprocating Technology Services (RTS). RTS has been working closely with Voith in a joint development effort to provide a new starting technology for large reciprocating engines that provide zero emissions and many other benefits.

“We loved the idea of bringing Voith into our shop,” said Frank Hoegler, TTS Vice President. “This partnership provides us the opportunity for a closer relationship with Voith and its Houston-area customers. What’s great is that TTS doesn’t compete with Voith, but we share a lot of mutual clients, so it’s a win-win situation for us and our customers.”

The AGT test stand has been up-and-running for over a month, explained Thad Berry, sales account manager at Voith Digital Solutions, Inc.

“We’ve had people knocking on our door since day one,” Berry said. “Having a local, certified team of trained technicians means a lot to our Houston customers. They want a local support network that understands the actuators and their applications with the proper equipment, tools, and expertise to perform critical maintenance and emergency repairs.”

Berry continued, “Actuators can be delivered directly from the field to Voith and its trained technicians – reducing the workload and time involved with shipping. That, in turn, means that repairs and maintenance can be completed faster, allowing for shorter outages.”
