Emerson and Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas Form Alliance
Emerson Process Management, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., has announced the formation of an alliance with Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas, Inc. (MPSA) of Orlando, Florida, U.S.A. The alliance, which combines Emerson’s experience in power plant automation and control with Mitsubishi’s experience in gas and steam turbine design and service, applies to North American and Latin American turbine retrofit projects supporting W251, W501D5, W501D5A, and W501F gas turbines as well as all models of Westinghouse technology steam turbines.
“Leveraging the respective strengths of Emerson and MPSA results in a complete turbine solution, giving power generators an OEM alternative for gas and steam turbine retrofits, and long-term service and support,” said Bob Yeager, president of the Power & Water Solutions division of Emerson. “Together, these companies can offer customers a level of turbine reliability, durability and operability that they don’t always get from their existing suppliers.”
Emerson and MPSA have already successfully collaborated on a number of turbine retrofit projects. These include performing mechanical upgrades and installing Emerson’s Ovation controls at the Termocandalaria power plant in Cartagena, Colombia, and for the San Juan Repowering Project in Puerto Rico.
