Wood Group Gets Deal In Myanmar

Company will overhaul, upgrade GE gas turbines

Posted on August 29, 2013

Wood Group GTS has received a one-year, US$13 million contract from a Myanmar-based power company to overhaul and upgrade three GE Frame 6B gas turbines in operation in the country's Yangon region.

The overhauls and upgrades are expected to improve the total output of the gas turbines and provide increased reliability to Myanmar's power production, the company said. The scope of work encompasses the complete overhaul of the gas turbines and auxiliary equipment, including the supply of new gas turbine parts, rotor overhaul, control systems, gas valve upgrades, and EcoValue compressor water wash systems.

Similar Wood Group GTS water wash systems installed on 6B gas turbines within the Asia Pacific region have improved turbine performance, increasing power output by up to 2.1% on a 2x1 power block, the company said.
