Chromalloy Selected To Provide Overhaul Services for Texas Plant's IGT
Chromalloy announced that it has been selected by Signal Hill Wichita Falls Power LP to provide repairs and overhaul on the independent power generator's LM2500 industrial gas turbine engine. The contract covers the installation of Chromalloy's single crystal platinum aluminide and air plasma spray coated high pressure turbine (HPT) turbine blades, nozzles and shrouds. The contract is the first LM2500 gas generator overhaul to be performed at Chromalloy's new service depot in San Diego, California, U.S.A.
Signal Hill's LM2500 gas turbine engine powers the company's electricity generating station in Wichita Falls, Texas, U.S.A. The industrial aero-derivative gas turbine engine is one of three at the utility company's power generation plant.
For more than 20 years, Chromalloy has provided service and high performance components for the LM2500 to operators throughout the world. The company's "single crystal" nickel alloys provide greater durability and improved performance in the LM2500 and LM6000 gas turbines, reports the company.
In September 2009, Chromalloy unveiled a dedicated depot in San Diego, California for LM2500 service, repairs and replacement parts. This facility offers support for the complete range of Level 1 through Level 4 depot maintenance, module exchange, leased engines and field services support. The facility also has an on-site test cell.
